Global transport and logistics provider Gebrüder Weiss continues to broaden their knowledge and proficiency within the automotive logistics sector.  With their new Competence Cluster Automotive, the company can now better offer deep analysis of the automotive industry resulting in definitive solutions for companies across the entire spectrum of supply chain management.

The extensive scope of services now cover standard warehousing, procurement and distribution, encompassing just in time deliveries direct to the manufacturer, and in-house logistics further covering regional freight forwarders on a transnational level. They are now more than 70 branches of Gebrüder Weiss offering bespoke solutions for clients in the automotive sectors.

Alexander Slovak of Gebrüder Weiss said “Well over 10,000 different components are fitted in a vehicle today – a major challenge for international carmakers and their suppliers. With our know-how and global network of locations, we are in a position to coordinate these complex logistics processes and deliver the products ‘just in time’ to our customers’ factories,”

Development of new types of dives from hydrogen, electricity and biogas alongside the continuing development in autonomous driving is resulting in closer partnerships and ideas between the tech and automotive industries. Gebrüder Weiss says they’ve gained a vast amount of invaluable experience in the industry over many years enabling the company to create crucial synergies between the logistics solutions needed for both industries.

The partnership between Gebrüder Weiss and automotive supplier Magna Steyr demonstrates how efficient these processes function. Gebrüder Weiss delivers vehicle parts to the Magna Steyr central production plant in Graz from other 400 supplier’s throughout Germany and to four other plants in the Austrian city of Styria.

Logistics Services Director Alfons Dachs-Wiesinger said about the partnership, “Transporting general cargo is demanding because many suppliers are involved. Even just one error will disrupt the workflows and may result in considerable extra expense. Therefore, it is essential to work accurately and consistently. Gebrüder Weiss is a competent partner who knows how to solve these complex tasks and how to improve processes on a sustainable basis.”
