Abstract

Australia has one of the most open and competitive automotive markets in the world. Whilst the closure of domestic car manufacturing in Australia by the end of 2017 has put pressure on the existing logistic infrastructure to handle excessive volumes of imported vehicles, the intense competition in the automotive market has created challenges for the different participants in this chain to save value. Within this context, an efficient and integrated automotive chain is important to avoid the erosion of value within the chain by linking producer and consumer.
