DRIVING THE AUTOMOTIVE SUPPLY CHAIN

Auto manufacturing

With global automotive sales reaching an all time record of 88M+ vehicles sold in 2016, the automotive industry continues at a record breaking pace.

Recognizing the need for specialized talent and skills relating specifically to the auto industry, JAS has formally created an Automotive Vertical catering to OEMs, Tier 1 &2 and 3PL customers. The Just-In-Time global supply chain supporting these customers are dependent on the flawless delivery and information updates by the JAS Automotive Vertical team.

JAS currently supports the Inbound Material logistics, Supply Chain solutions and Aftermarket components for its automotive customers. Future growth opportunities also lie in the finished vehicles sector as well as Value Added Assemblies.

​The automotive industry's supply chain is a complex one involving many partners including tier suppliers and original equipment manufacturers. It is also one that typically spans many countries. The complexity of the automotive supply chain is often attributed to the coordination and delivery of components from numerous companies in different countries that in turn must be carefully planned to ensure a smooth manufacturing and assembly process.

JAS Automotive understands the complexities of the industry, market volatility, unique interface requirements, and critical deadline requirements. We work with leading automotive manufacturers and suppliers throughout the world, utilizing our effective account management program to develop and maintain seamless product flows.
