Recent wins

Deloitte assisted a major automotive company in analyzing the re-design of the company’s supply chain and the foreign trade approach needed to obtain the benefits of a special manufacturing regime which contains reductions in customs duties. Through our work, savings of approximately 25% of the company’s costs were identified, turning the business into a highly profitable one. Profits may otherwise have been very limited, reducing market competitiveness.
