You need a steady flow of components for assembly, from bearings to bumpers and everything in between. With UPS behind the wheel, not only do you get the broadest portfolio of reliable transportation services, you get complete visibility to keep you in control along the way. While many air freight carriers give you only a range of transit days for delivery, UPS gives you guaranteed or non-guaranteed day-definite services so you get the predictability and flexibility you need.
Getting automotive components to your final destination is crucial, but so is efficient assembly. When you have a number of suppliers who may be in different cities or countries, you need a solution to coordinate their activities.
UPS Supplier Management services has tools to help you design and manage the critical front end of your supply chain, to ensure that you receive the parts needed from your automotive suppliers. With it you can prevent stockouts, shortages, delivery delays, and the need to hold higher levels of inventory to avoid these situations.
With UPS Supplier Management services, you have access to the vital order, item, and vendor fulfillment information right down to the SKU level before the order is scheduled to ship. We make this data available in real time via Flex® Global View. So the chance of errors and delays is reduced and managing your business is easier.
