Supply chain design in e-mobility supply chain networks

  • The German Federal Government claimed the goal to have one million electric cars on German roads by 2020 to foster the public acceptance of electric cars and electromobility. Moreover, the amount and the variety of electric cars are steadily increasing as well as the public awareness for sustainability is rising. Along with the rising proliferation of electric cars, new application possibilities for electric vehicles arise, for instance in warehouses or natural reserve areas. To ensure an impeccable provision of electric cars in alignment with all stakeholder requirements, a flawless supply chain (SC) must be installed in the background to avoid process inefficiencies. For example, during the production launch of the new BMW i3, bottlenecks related to the provision of carbon fiber were noticed which led to discrepancies in the production and sales process.
