Commercial vehicles

Managing costs, innovation and sustainability

Companies in the commercial vehicle industry have to hold their own in an intense, international competitive environment. They must meet high customer requirements in terms of product quality, innovation and aftersales, while at the same time improving their cost and environmental performance. 

The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) – often the decisive purchasing criterion for commercial vehicle customers – plays a key role in this. TCO comprises the operating costs of a commercial vehicle in terms of fuel consumption, maintenance costs, repairs and insurance costs. In addition, there is a requirement to reduce the environmental footprint in the sector used (e.g. transportation, construction, municipal applications) by developing vehicles with higher efficiency and lower environmental impact. 

With ROI-EFESO, commercial vehicle manufacturers and their suppliers lead transformation processes in the operations areas to success - in individual business units and plants as well as in the global plant- or corporate network. 

We develop adequate ways to improve business processes, optimize cost structures and offer customer-centric solutions. In doing so, we establish the efficient use of Industry 4.0 technologies, increase the maturity of sustainability programs, and combine digitization and sustainability initiatives.

Take advantage of the industry expertise of ROI-EFESO's consultants to generate added value from current and future market developments. 

Under the credo "BUILDING INDUSTRIAL FUTURE TOGETHER", we work with you in a solution and results-oriented manner – from the board room to the shop floor! With us, you strengthen your competitiveness, agility and operational excellence.

ROI Case Studie - Lean Transformation
Case Study

In the lean production system of an automobile manufacturer, a premium model with a wide range of variants and vertical integration rolled off the assembly line. But then the new head of production set the goal of introducing two additional series on the same line within just five months. The company used this challenge to realign its production, increasing the volume of manufactured cars by 85%.

Case Study

An automotive supplier harmonizes production planning and control in ten factory locations around the world. With ROI-EFESO, the company develops a suitable solution concept for a suitable software solution. This enables a standardization of the planning process and thus more flexibility and efficiency. Likewise, a long-term capacity planning of the plant group can be carried out in the new software.

Case Study

A leading automotive manufacturer wants to make its procurement sustainable and measure progress through KPIs. But the goals cannot be achieved via the purchasing side alone - the company needs a company-wide ESG strategy.
