The logic of the Automobile

The automobile is a multifaceted “object”.

Increasingly personalised and increasingly “complex”, nowadays, motorcars are produced according to a logic which is ironclad and yet highly flexible.

We take up this challenge by supplying services of excellence the world over, as attested by our being members of the World Class Manufacturing Association (WCMA), the organisation that brings together the best players in the field of production and logistic chains.

Thanks to the experience acquired in over 60 years of activity in the service of prestigious customers, we are able to ensure that goods are handled and stored according to the most effective modalities in dedicated warehouses or through multi-client platforms.

PLANT LOGISTICS

This is a full range of services, which, besides inventory management, includes the coordination of activities associated with a fully integrated production process, such as pre-assembling and kit building activities.

Part sequencing and arranging families of components in the order they are to be fitted to the vehicles along the production line is a high value added service, which we supply to major vehicle manufacturers in Italy and abroad.
