Abstract

Automotive industry is at the vanguard of creating a lean supply chain, whose practices are geared toward maintaining minimal inventory and streamlining all facets of the supply chain management process. The strategy includes a constant stream of just-in-time supply to car manufacturers through mixed loading of components with high frequency of pick-up and delivery, which is challenging the logistics operations. Therefore, manufacturers in automotive industry tend to outsource their logistics. Mathematical models and solution procedures are proposed in this paper to support logistics planning in automotive industry when there is constraint on delivery intervals. They may also be used as decision aids to outsource the logistics function, as negotiation tools, as joint planning tools, and/or as evaluation tools for continuous improvement.
