Order to Delivery - Is Vehicle Supply Chain Changing?
In the early 2000s, the concept of “Order to Delivery” was touted as the Next Big Thing in the automotive industry. As more consumers across the US get more selective with what vehicles they want to drive, we dive into a quick history on Order for Delivery, its risks, and impact on Supply Chain Visibility, as well as how this will shape the future for buying a vehicle.
GHG Emissions in Finished Vehicle Logistics – Road to Net Zero
As OEMs pursue ambitious GHG emissions reduction targets, suppliers, automotive manufacturers and logistics service providers must work together to balance lower emissions with other relevant KPIs such as delivery times and costs. Finished vehicle logistics will play an essential role in achieving these goals and measures to tackle emissions. In Europe and the USA, the logistics transport sector is responsible for more than a quarter of greenhouse gas emissions. Most of the emissions come from road traffic (71%). Only the energy and heat generation sector produces more significant amounts of emissions.
29 Years of ICL Systems – The Beginning and Plan

Fast forward 29 years, now an industry leader within Vehicle Logistics Management, all thanks to Patrick’s attention to detail.
CO2 Reductions in the Finished Vehicle Logistics Industry
In the EU and the US, the logistics transport sector is responsible for more than a quarter of total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Only in the area of energy and heat generation do larger quantities of emissions arise. Using the example of the EU, the following graphic shows how GHG emissions are distributed among the various modes of logistics and transport.
