Automotive supply chain development checklist

Supply chain collaboration – from the highest level to the lowest – is essential for success in the automotive industry. Problems at any point in the supply chain, such as issues with product quality, deliveries, incompetent suppliers or employees, or a lack of compliance with regulations, can have a catastrophic effect on any automotive project.
