Geodis Wilson - Automotive Freight Management Services

Geodis Wilson is a leading global freight management company, delivering tailor-made, integrated solutions to customers.

Geodis Wilson manages sea and air cargo across five continents, making supply chains transparent and flexible to handle. As the freight forwarding division of the Geodis Group, Geodis Wilson grew out of the merger between Geodis Overseas, TNT Freight Management and Rohde & Liesenfeld. In November 2008, the company became part of the French rail and freight group SNCF. With its now 50,000 employees located in 120 countries, SNCF Geodis ranks among the top six companies in its field in the world.

In the automotive industry, the international combination of multi-company, multi-stage production means that stock has to get where it needs to be, on time and undamaged. Geodis Wilson understands that this is a requirement that must be met – cost-effectively – each and every time. That is why we partner with companies like yours to provide solutions that meet the specific automotive challenges you face, reduce costs by optimising the supply chain, and ensure that you have the time you need to focus on your business.

Global control tower and customised tracking solutions

Freight management is all about maintaining full control at all stages, everywhere. Geodis Wilson's global control tower provides complete operational, tactical and strategic control throughout your supply chain with a single point of contact, one-stop shopping and global pricing with a simple rate structure. We provide centralised logistics planning, dispatch administration and operational handling while our e-services allow full transparency like never before.

Freight Planner, Freight Monitor and our Customer Portal provide booking services and proactive quality control as well as real-time tracking and tracing all the way down to part and order numbers. If you would like to take a more hands-on approach, a dedicated team will work with you to link your own order management and stock control systems to our tracking and tracing abilities, giving you full control, every step of the way.

Account management

We don't just overcome general impediments to global delivery, such as extreme weather and re-routing. We also understand and meet the specific challenges your industry faces. Geodis Wilson has strategically located teams around the world who are committed and dedicated to the automotive industry, with superior account management and a strong network to match the needs of even the largest global companies. We also take full responsibility from the moment you are placing the order up until ultimate delivery, giving you direct access to somebody who knows your business, as well as the current status of events.

A total automotive solution tailored to your needs

The complex, cross-border nature of the automotive industry means that some of your requirements will be more urgent than others. But there is no point in paying for things you do not need. We will balance cost with urgency, using the right combination of sea, air and road transportation to meet your specific requirements. From general containerised ocean freight to "next flight out" solutions, your stock will arrive where and when you need it, in the most cost effective way possible.

Our Cost Analysis Tool also highlights potential process improvements, which can lower your costs considerably. You will receive the services you need through a continuously customised solution based on your constantly evolving real-time scenarios.
