Digitalisation of Finished Vehicle Logistics

This Recommendation provides a set of standard electronic messages which enables OEMs and Finished Vehicle Logistics Service Providers to collaborate with each other in a more efficient way. It also serves to avoid the proliferation of many different message types and thereby significantly reduce IT development costs for individual companies.

A set of messages associated with this Recommendation has been developed to cover all communication processes currently defined as being required between partners (vehicle shippers and logistics service providers) in the Finished Vehicle distribution chain.
