Global conflicts of interest, together with the coronavirus pandemic and the war in Ukraine, among other aspects, have been fundamental for many companies to have had serious problems to store all their materials and at the same time, consolidate themselves as one of the most powerful alternatives in the sector. Under this premise, in Carglass wanted to show their version of what has happened, and at the same time has reported that they have modified their modes of work and production, with the intention that it reaches all possible users.
Due to the aforementioned background, the glass supply chain has been affected, both in some types of moons, and in some models that have recently left the factory. Therefore, in Carglass, have been incorporating new ways of working, although there may be some occasional delays.
To get an idea, the global market for flat glass for cars represented 4,500 million square meters of surface in 2020. Luckily, in the company they have the largest stock of car glassware on the planet, reaching to store more than 100,000 moons and 15,000 references different, in its logistics center located in Ciempozuelos.
In addition, Carglass Spain has the best prepared distribution service to deliver the right glass at the time and place that the customer needs. Your logistics structure allows you to supply a moon of virtually any car within 6 to 48 hours to the nearly 200 Carglass centres in Spain. From the logistics center of Ciempozuelos an average of 3,000 moons a day, around 700,000 a year, leave for the centers.
The new business models have not harmed the company, that the growth of the size of the same, standing at up to 15% more surface area and 10% less thickness, in Carglass they have thought of everything. In addition, the advent of ADAS driving assistance systems has caused windshields to mount cameras and sensors, which leads to an increase in the complexity of the manufacture, transport, storage and distribution of windshields.
