The current EV battery landscape

The automotive industry continues to be a critical economic contributor in key markets around the world. The ongoing changes have led to a major shift in the industry with manufacturers and customers transitioning away from the traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) powered conventional vehicles to electric-powered vehicles (EV).

Making sense of complexity

Automotive supply chains have become even more complex.
Today, the two drivetrains – internal combustion and electric – are sharing space on vehicle production lines. The epicentre of battery production has shifted to regional geographies, and zero-emission technologies are evolving at a pace that demands quick and seamless turnarounds.

With increasing customer demands and expectations, more parts are going into vehicles than ever before. As a component manufacturer, you now face an inherent need to produce more components than the OEMs themselves.

In the context of this industry-wide transformation, Antonio Fondevilla, Global Automotive Vertical Head of Maersk, explains the role that logistics can play in navigating this disruptive landscape.

A solution-driven approach

Aiming for an industry-wide transformation to achieve net zero in less than 20 years comes with both technological and economical challenges. A realistic way of approaching this goal is to look beyond the smaller targets like finding efficiency gains, route and modal shifts, and aim for a multi-faceted solution on efficiencies, optimisations, and fuels. Amid all this, energy transition will be the key player to drive this transformation.

Sustainability in Automotive industry

Understand the challenges, implement the solutions

Creating an environmentally sustainable automotive supply chain can be a difficult task. This is because of the complexity involved in sourcing thousands of components from different parts of the world.

However, it is possible to make end-to-end automotive logistics green by understanding the different obstacles involved in the process and concentrating on implementing one sustainability initiative at a time.

Sustainability in Automotive industry

Every component matters

Tens of thousands of components – big and small – go into the marvel that is an automobile. This means that all the parts need to be in the right place at the right time. Delays are not acceptable as they risk slowing down the assembly line.
