Ambitious Long-Distance Just-in-Sequence Tracking Solution Planned

Ambitious Long-Distance Just-in-Sequence Tracking Solution Planned
GateHouse Logistics, a telematics data stream company, and Schmitz Cargobull Telematics, trailer telematics specialist, have entered into a joint agreement with Magna International to set up a Long Distance Just in Sequence (LD-JIS) tracking solution for new vehicle programs at Magna’s Steyr facility in Graz, Austria.

The cooperation brings together the manufacturing capabilities and technologies of three leaders in their respective fields and could become a blueprint for the automotive industry to harness the ingenuity of LD-JIS.

As cars become more customized, LD-JIS-based production enables carmakers to have the right parts at precisely the right time. They need the right GPS, mirrors, doors, engines, whatever, delivered at a precise moment in the production chain to ensure that large buffer inventories are no longer an option.

Over 300 trucks with trailers fitted with Schmitz Cargobull Telematics systems will be used in this LD-JIS project. The ghTrack data unifying technology of GateHouse Logistics will be used to give Magna a single tower view of all parts in transit to its factory in Graz, Austria. GateHouse’s unified data stream technology will be integrated into the Magna Steyr enterprise planning system. The project will be fully operational by Spring 2017.
