Acceleration of Assembly in Auto and Transport Manufacturing

Safety, efficiency, and speed are top priorities for manufacturers specializing in automotive and transport products. Customers seek quick delivery, further compressing already tight production schedules. Without compromising safety, warehouses seek solutions to make processes lean.

Auto and Transport Manufacturing Challenges

This industry faces four consistent challenges in manufacturing:

  • Safety First Protocols – Preventing injury and reducing accidents become top priority for auto and transport plants since the industry marks the highest rate of injury and illness when compared to the private sector. Understanding where automations and robotic products augment manufacturing provides additional avenues to speed safe production.
  • Sustainability – The demand for a greener footprint increases as consumers look toward environmentally friendly options – including the manufacture of vehicles and the ways in which they are ultimately delivered. This may include selecting suppliers with sustainability practices in place and a dedicated recycling program, in addition to more sustainable manufacturing processes.
  • Limited Qualified Employees – Skilled labor struggles with retention and turnover issues, so training and development for new hires must be accessible, keeping safety at the forefront. Selecting equipment that is ergonomic and easy to use supports the health and well-being of all employees.
  • Lean Fleets, Leaner Capital – Solve tight budget solutions utilizing new technology. The next generation of trucks are updated with automations and applications that can right-size your fleet and provide insights into operations.
