Automotive logistics that run like clockwork
In the fast-moving international automotive industry, timing is key. Thousands of parts have to be delivered every day to keep production moving, and finished vehicles have to be at the right place at the right time, every time. We make that simple.
We began working with the Ford Motor Company in 1928. Today, we are the world’s leading international automotive and car shipping company. Over the years, we have built up an in-depth understanding of the automotive industry and its challenges – and we can help keep your business running smoothly and expand into new markets.
Our agreement with Maersk Line allows us to measure the environmental impact of our supply chain. It’s very important for us to know because suppliers have a significant impact on our sustainability performance.Norbert Dierks, Head of Transport Sustainability, BMW Group

Explore new markets
We do a lot more than ship automotive and car parts across the world. We also help you to grow into new international markets. If you are looking to set up a plant or export business in an emerging market, we use our local understanding and global expertise to ensure that your local supply chain runs smoothly from the start, with a seamless connection to your global operations.
Take Hyundai, for example. The South Korean car manufacturer mainly operated in Asia when it partnered with us in the early 1990s. We worked closely with Hyundai to develop an international car shipping solution, establishing production and distribution networks in local markets in Russia and Latin America. Today, Hyundai is the fourth-largest car manufacturer in the world.
