DHL Supply Chain has become an integral part of the carmaker’s UK supply chain and manufacturing operations over its decade-long partnership with Jaguar Land Rover. Now the cooperation for the management of the inbound supply chain for the new production facility of the car manufacturer in Nitra in Slovakia is being extended.
In the next phase of the partnership DHL will support Jaguar Land Rover as the company adapts its operations to achieve manufacturing excellence for the next generation of premium, customised cars and the adoption of electrification.
Working in close partnership, DHL and Jaguar Land Rover will implement a programme of transformational operational improvements and accelerated digitalisation to support long-term growth and deliver significant cost savings over the next five years.
Oscar de Bok, CEO DHL Supply Chain added: “We are delighted to be extending our partnership with Jaguar Land Rover and accelerating the digitalization process to transform the supply chain. In the coming years we look forward to helping Jaguar Land Rover deliver an outstanding customer experience in an increasingly complex and competitive market.”
Custom manufacturing, an important differentiator for Jaguar Land Rover, is making supply chain and sequencing processes increasingly complex.
Investment in digitalisation and data analysis are being implemented to enable intelligent planning and management decisions.
