Prompted challenges thrown up by the pandemic and the war in Ukraine, the project, which will be in conjunction with think-tank Project Zebra, research company Supply Chain Insights and software house 09 Solutions, Euro Car Parts’ parent company will look at the issue from an ‘outside in’ perspective – so-called because planners look at the business as if they were customers judging a retail storefront by the appearance of the shop window.


“With a more detailed forecast on supply and demand our planning will improve,” said Claudia Martins, VP Logistics at LKQ Europe. “We will be able to provide better services to our customers, by fostering our relationships with suppliers, saving time, resources, and cost.”
