The project team experts from all specialist departments, including Quality, Logistics, Production and Procurement, ensure maximum delivery reliability and competitive cost structures. Our proven project management process typically starts 2 to 3 years before the SOP (start of production).

For each location, up to 1,200 individual components from approx. 150 suppliers in over 12 countries are controlled by thyssenkrupp Automotive Systems. In cooperation with forwarding agents, shipping companies, air freight partners and customs agents, thyssenkrupp Automotive Systems coordinates around 70,000 transport journeys annually across 4 continents for punctual deliveries to the respective destination locations.

We reduce complexity - With a global network, thyssenkrupp Automotive Systems controls the processes where they are needed: at the location of the customer. thyssenkrupp Automotive Systems therefore plans, builds and commissions plants tailor-made for the customer, either directly on the plant premises of the customer, or in the immediate vicinity. The customer can choose from different concepts, or select a combination: from integration into the development process so that early consideration is taken of factors such as ease of assembly, location concept and structure, installation of supplier and supply chain management, and just-in-sequence assembly and delivery.
