Car firms in drive to set up transparent China supply chain


China’s auto market is becoming more competitive, forcing manufacturers to look closer at their entire supply chain to cut costs and drive efficiency. One obvious area where companies such as Beijing Benz Daimler Chrysler (BBDC) are working to optimise themselves is in their supplier management.
BBDC is a relatively recent joint auto venture that built a new manufacturing facility in Beijing in early 2007 for the E-Class Mercedes and Chrysler 300C.

Knowing the import- ance of communication with their suppliers, BBDC implemented a web-based EDI (electronic data interchange) system that is user friendly for all levels of BBDC suppliers.
