. A delay in the delivery of production parts can cause substantial monetary loss. Automobile manufacturers should take utmost care while partnering with a supply chain company, as any disruptions in the delivery can affect production. 
Your supply chain partner is responsible for delivering the right quantity of goods at the right time. When you are aware of these things, you can deploy your labourers to do their part of the job efficiently. Your supply chain partner should be aware of all significant information on what you need, and by when. 
 
Here are a few steps that your supply chain partner should take to ensure smooth operations:
 
Collect Data
Along with collecting valuable data, your logistics partner should analyse and store relevant data. Using technologies like AI, automation, and real-time tracking helps in collecting data. The data that is collected determines the best routes, manages drivers, and assures that the products remain in movement at all times. 
 
Give Details
As a customer, you are entitled to know every minute detail about your consignment. You should be informed about the scheduled order pick up, the actual pick-up time, and everything in between. If the customer demands to know the status, origin, destination, and part-level detail, the logistics company should be able to provide it instantly. Real-time tracking of your consignment and seamless visibility in your inventories reinforces your faith in the logistics company. 
 
Find Best Routes
We cannot put enough emphasis on the timely delivery of production parts in the automobile industry. One delay can cause great damage to the manufacturing process. So, your logistics partner is responsible for finding the shortest routes, or building new ones (when required) proactively. With the help of real-time data, this can be done easily. 
 
If you are looking for an automotive logistics solution providing company, keep these pointers in mind to evaluate them.
