AL Red Sofa Interviews - Stamp Full colour

Raúl Gamboa, director of material and transport control at BMW Group Plant San Luis Potosi sat down with Richard Logan, senior content producer, Automotive Logistics to speak about the need to be more flexible and creative within Mexico’s supply chain. 

He said that some of the most important measures the OEM has taken in Mexico to combat capacity woes and bottlenecks has been to be more creative. He said that BMW created space in the carmaker’s plants to be able to handle higher numbers of vehicle inventory. On top of this, BMW increased its land transport capacity by buying new hauliers, bringing in flat beds, and introducing containerisation. 

Gamboa also stressed the importance of digitalisation, and the need to be able to predict when an issue might affect finished vehicle logistics.
