Actualis engage with our clients’ professional and trade associations, which is why we are pleased to see our customer, Metro, become a member of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, to be closer to the beating heart of their key automotive vertical.
For over 40 years Metro has been working with leading automotive brands, OEMs and suppliers, creating supply chain solutions for inbound product flows, aftermarket logistics and finished vehicle transport, so it makes sense for them align themselves closely with the sector.
The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) is one of the largest and most influential trade associations in the UK. It is the voice of the UK motor industry, supporting and promoting its members’ interests, at home and abroad, to government, stakeholders and the media.
Improvements in logistics drive down the cost of vehicle manufacturing and significantly increase productivity and Metro can share best logistics practice and provide guidance and support to SMMT members, that will improve the efficiency of their automotive logistics operations.
The SMMT recognise the critical importance of Automotive Logistics, with a range of initiatives for senior industry executives, that will give Metro the opportunity to share their experience and also, critically, learn lessons from potential customers.
Aligning Metro closely with this critical vertical, through SMMT membership, will raise awareness of their brand within this key vertical, provide positive endorsement by association and trigger opportunities through informal networking.
They will elevate their standing in a key vertical and grow their professional network of the people that are driving the motor industry.
