Local support for Iberia and Morocco
Spain is the largest producer of vehicles in
Europe after Germany, while Portugal and Morocco have both seen a significant
increase in automotive production over the past few years. In common with their
partners and competitors across the world, vehicle manufacturers in these
countries are under growing pressure to reduce the environmental impact and cost
of their logistics operations. In facing up to this challenge, they are looking
more and more to an increase in local sourcing.
At the same time, they are increasing their demands on these local suppliers to accompany them in the drive to a greener future in which the widespread and efficient deployment of Odette Best Practice Recommendations and Standard Tools will play a major role.
To meet the demand for local support in these countries,
Odette International has established a partnership with the consulting and
training group OPCO Academia. OPCO will assist Odette in the deployment of
Odette standards in Spain, Portugal and Morocco, taking responsibility for the distribution
of Odette publications and providing translations in the local language where
necessary. As the Odette recommended
MMOG trainer in these countries, OPCO Academia will be instrumental in
ensuring a seamless transition of the local supplier base to the new MMOG/LE
Version 5 and the new IT platform.
If you are located in Spain, Portugal or Morocco and
need support for Odette Standards, Tools and Services, OPCO Academia is your first
port of call.
This agreement is the
second in a planned series of partnerships with organisations across the world
to provide local support for Odette standards and follows one established
earlier this year with IQA to provide support for the automotive
industry in Brazil.
