Manufacturing and logistics managers increasingly focus on reputation management as market competition heightens for 2013 models   Print  
OEMs are increasingly calling upon emergency logistics to prevent final delivery delays and protect brand value. Tuesday, 16th October 2012

Cup holders delivered by four aircraft highlights increased value of emergency logistics as premiumisation spreads to customer service

An emergency delivery of cup holders by four aircraft charters has underlined OEMs' commitment to the premiumisation of customer service to support increased vehicle quality. As drivers hold onto their cars for longer and the gaps between vehicle segments reduce, OEMs have to work harder for each sale. A key part of automotive marketing is now brand experience. Regardless of the segment, each touch point has to resonate with quality if the consumer is to build a positive image of the company and ultimately its products. This challenge does not stop once the order has been placed; customer retention is now a major part of sales strategies. An increasing amount of thought and investment is made to ensure that customers feel valued throughout the process and car delivery is the most emotive element.
