• Logistics and supply chain management

ZF Automotive

ZF Automotive is a top Tier-1 supplier of transmissions for the biggest auto makers in the world. As part of their manufacturing process, ZF provides its supplier base with returnable containers to transport incoming components. With millions of dollars invested in returnable packaging, ZF needs an efficient way to control and manage this fleet.

In partnership with packIQ, nuVector provides ZF Automotive with our LoopManager™ asset management software application to completely manage the storage, shipping, ordering and tracking of ZF’s container fleet.

Using LoopManager’s Partner module, ZF enables its suppliers to directly place orders for the containers they need, while tightly controlling the type, quantity and frequency of each order.

This has resulted in complete visibility of the returnable container fleet, which in turn has dramatically improved the logistics processes associated with the storage, movement and tracking of the returnable fleet.
