Supply chain disruptions, sustainability and digitalisation are changing how Renault manages its supply chain. Global supply chain VP Jean-François Salles explains its developing strategy in this four-part special.
In its latest results Renault estimates that its vehicle production shortfall thanks to parts shortages for 2021 will reach around 500,000 units, above the 200,000 it previously forecast for the year. However, the company is making efforts to meet is projected operating margin.
To coincide with the start of production of the fully electric BMW i4 at its Munich assembly plant in Germany, the carmaker has also launched a project to completely cut local emissions from the transport logistics used to feed parts into the plant.
Following a workshop on data-driven supply chain at ALSC Global, Tech Mahindra’s Akhil Dabas discusses the role that integrated data analytics can play in influencing supplier and manufacturing decisions.
