ABSTRACT
This article reports on a workshop held for the members of the special interest groups of the Institute of Logistics and Transport, which had Geoff Williams and Joe Miemczyk of the 3DayCar project as speakers. They are talking of three days from order placement, through manufacture and delivery to a customer in Great Britain. The research undertaken by the project team has demonstrated that 28 percent of fleet buyers, 63 percent of private buyers and 84 percent of buyers under 25 years are seeking lead-times of two weeks or less. The current average timescale from order input to delivery is 40 days, of which only one and a half days account for production. Is a total supply chain approach was taken, improved efficiency and savings could be achieved for all involved in the process. Information technology is available to facilitate the real-time visibility of information across the supply chain. The meeting provided an opportunity for wide-ranging discussion including the future potential in the global marketplace for increased supplier power.
