The automotive industry utilizes one of the largest and most complex supply chains in the world. Although mature, this hyper-competitive industry invests billions of dollars each year in streamlining operations and improving overall efficiency. This demanding industry is ready made for a company such as Revolution.
Revolution’s expertise in the automotive and industry spans from OEM (original equipment manufacturers) and Tier 1 to Tier 2 and 3 suppliers. We know that major car manufacturers rely on top-tier suppliers for their parts, and it’s our job to move them safely and efficiently.
Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) produce original equipment, but they are more focused on creating and putting together new vehicle models. The tier system is made up of businesses whose goods will eventually be put inside these newly-built vehicles.
Tier 1 suppliers are businesses that provide parts or systems directly to the manufacturers.
Tier 2 suppliers don't sell their parts straight to the car companies. Instead, they provide parts that are eventually used in vehicles, but these companies usually work with a number of non-automotive clients in addition to their automotive connections.
Tier 3 suppliers offer raw materials like metal or plastic. Manufacturers, as well as Tier 1 and 2 suppliers, rely on Tier 3 suppliers for these raw materials.
Revolution operates throughout this structure, whether by moving parts to OEMs, or delivering raw or near-raw materials to Tier 1 suppliers.
From our very beginning, Revolution has supported both the OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers. Our leaders have experience in automotive dating back to the 1980's and the dawn of JIT and Lean Six Sigma. We understand what is required for success.
From the founding of the Company, this sector has been an important component of our growth. We have the people, processes, and technology to provide these unique shippers with the confidence they require in a transportation service provider.
From consistently surpassing their stringent KPIs to our continuous improvement efforts with our ISO 9001 certification, Revolution stands ready to exceed your cost, quality, and service requirements.
