Vehicles, Tires, Components and Aftermarket


Essential automotive and sector services from the leaders in Auto-Mobility logistics.

Component Manufacturers

Our Auto-Mobility inbound-to-manufacturing service optimizes assembly lines while satisfying cost-saving requirements and parts dependability. Services such as in-plant logistics, sequencing, and just-in-time delivery ensure operations efficiency. We also focus on supplier visibility and management, collection, and consolidation services for I2M, emergency shipments, product type-tailored logistics, and risk management.

We are specialists in battery logistics, smart monitoring, data analytics, rapid adaptation, and separating logistics expenses from parts costs: a truly global supply chain solution for the Auto-Mobility components sector including independent aftermarket distribution and e-commerce. We ensure that time-critical deliveries are made on schedule to maintain production, fulfill manufacturing objectives, and meet customer needs.

Our Expertise

Tires

Tire demand can be volatile; consumers expect rapid product availability while Auto-Mobility providers need to minimize inventory. We assist by providing raw material inbound solutions, finished product distribution centers, flexible deliveries, and customized tire warehouse management systems.

At DHL, we understand that specific needs require specialized knowledge and solutions that are right for the customer. We invest in developing innovative expertise and systems to ensure maximum flexibility and technical advantages such as smart containers. Tire manufacturers are now less reliant on wholesalers and with the support of logistics can establish direct-to-market channels. This means true local, global, and sustainable end-to-end solutions, providing OEM manufacturing support from tire logistics specialists.

Our Expertise
