Completely Knocked Down: The CKD Principle
Instead of shipping whole cars to overseas markets, automotive manufacturers prefer to ship vehicle components to be assembled on-site in local manufacturing plants. The reason: Import duties for “completely knocked down” (CKD) products are often considerably lower than for finished end products, and the components occupy less freight volume, reducing the freight costs as well.
Some parts and components are produced at company-owned production facilities, while others are supplied by international sub-contractors. Ensuring that this enormous variety of car components supplied by various sources in different countries is delivered to the production plant bang on time is a logistic tour de force. This calls for well-engineered mobile computing solutions.
All German car manufacturers use Advantech-DLoG forklift terminals, for instance for production logistics processes, in-house transport, scanning transport goods, and purchase order processing.
