Automotive Manufacturers 'On-Site' Logistics Solutions

Reduce the risk of production line disruption by outsourcing your ‘on-site’ logistics

Building vehicles is a complex process and managing the supply and stock of inventory so that production output is maintained is a huge challenge. Add in that a car is built every minute, each one is different and the build sequence can change at a moments notice – the number of things that can go wrong has multiplied more than tenfold.

Production line stoppages are expensive and avoidable delays in the manufacturing process; good ‘on-site’ logistics management can minimise the risk of interruption.

Rudolph and Hellmann Automotive can minimise your production stoppages

With so much at stake it is amazing how vulnerable your production line is, if the processes, people and equipment don’t work efficiently.

The opportunity for savings is easy to measure and demonstrate but in our experience the hidden cost of inefficient ‘on site’ logistics is far greater than that ever quantified: 

  • Waste through loss or damage;
  • Absenteeism, recruitment and training;
  • Inefficient operating processes and practices;
  • Inefficient operating environment and organisation;
  • Manning or equipping for peak capacity not for ‘minimum’.

As the main outsourced ‘on site’ logistics partners for several major automotive manufacturers in the UK, we understand what is required to optimise efficiency in the most demanding of manufacturing environments.

Right product, right place and time at the right cost

Sounds simple doesn’t it?

Until you consider you need to manage attendance, health and safety, training of new recruits, stock inventory etc, and that’s before you even start to think about getting the parts to the production line.

Logistics is a nightmare unless you focus all of your attention on it – that’s precisely what we do, and it is all we do.

Rudolph and Hellmann Automotive don’t run a fleet of vehicles but we can manage your in-bound and out bound logistics, plus all movements ‘on-site’.

We can take on the whole process, even manage some sub assembly, but we prefer to grow organically within your production facility. Starting with a small self contained specific problem area – that’s right, give us the parts you have the most problems with and keep the bits you don’t.

Flexible costing options to minimise your overheads

What if you could turn your internal logistics on and off like a tap, reducing costs to a minimum when you need to, without any pain. Having only the right number of people at any given time – the optimum equipment negotiated at the best rates?

What if the production line feed ran to 99.98% efficiency and all you had to concentrate on was making cars?

What if you could share the risk if orders slow down?

Rudolph and Hellmann Automotive have the best ‘on-site’ logistics brains to develop process maps, provide training and negotiate your equipment requirements. They can equip and organise your people or take them on as their own employees.

We provide a dynamic production line support structure and the most cost efficient and flexible ‘on-site’ logistics pricing options in the industry.

We can help you drive out unnecessary cost - Guaranteed

In short, you can use us in the areas you find difficult to manage and keep the rest in-house – we are prepared to work on the smallest of contracts to prove how you can drive out excess cost and inefficiency from your manufacturing supply chain through better processes, systems and training.

Why not call us for a FREE ‘on-site' logistics audit – carried out under a non disclosure agreement. Our findings will be reported in full confidence and will provide a detailed analysis of where savings and improvements can be made.
