CDC Software says that its CDC Supply Chain Solutions were implemented at a new parts distribution and packaging center of Shanghai General Motors, a 50-50 joint venture partnership between General Motors and Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation Group.
Shanghai General Motors recently opened the first of four new model parts distribution and packaging centers in Guangzhou, China. This facility utilizes the CDC Supply Chain product suite including Warehouse Management, Labor Management, Slotting Optimization, Yard Management, Event Management and Enterprise Visibility. These applications provide Shanghai General Motors with an advanced supply chain execution software suite. Shanghai General Motors intends to implement CDC Supply Chain at the other three facilities as they are built.
Formed more than 10 years ago, Shanghai General Motors is one of the largest and fastest growing car manufacturers in China. The joint venture assembles, distributes and services vehicles under the Buick, Saab, Chevrolet and Cadillac brands through more than 400 dealers in China.
"Our growth is unprecedented in the automotive industry and successfully managing that growth is indeed a key to our success," says Wang Jun, general director of Aftersales & Downstream Business of Shanghai General Motors. "Managing our Service Parts operations is critical for maintaining our growth and CDC Software's complete supply chain solution for high volume, high velocity environments like ours is a key part of our distribution strategy."
