How Magna Met JIT Delivery Requirements


A global automotive supplier met the complex just-in-time (JIT) delivery needs of their advanced brand-independent manufacturing operation, all while improving delivery predictability, cutting emissions and eliminating manual internal processes.


Magna’s bold vision for JIT manufacturing was in jeopardy as the demands of manually coordinating shipments precisely across numerous points of origin in Europe were unsustainable. If one shipment arrived out of sequence, customers like BMW and Daimler could face costly manufacturing delays, including shutting down production lines.


Magna chose Movement by project44™ as a foundation for transportation value chain analytics. In less than 4 weeks, Magna was collecting, normalizing and enriching data from hundreds of telematics devices – and feeding that enriched data into their critical systems. The Magna team now optimizes routes and proactively plans for predicted future issues to achieve OTIF within precise appointment windows. And they’ve achieved this level of insight while remaining in full GDPR compliance.
