About the Industry

Finished vehicle logistics is playing an important role in satisfying both needs. Post-production technical enhancement centres can adapt basic production models to suit individual customers and a sophisticated logistics network design can speed the flow of a vehicle from the factory and provide accurate delivery times for dealers and owners.

Distribution typically accounts for 30% of the sale price of the vehicle, although the physical process of that distribution accounts for a mere 4% of the total cost.

The remaining 26% of cost covers setting up and supporting a dealer network (10%), advertising and marketing (6%) and discounts and promotions (10%).
