Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has roped in Unipart Logistics to provide aftermarket parts logistics for both the Jaguar and Land Rover luxury automotive brands.
Unipart's strength and expertise in supply chain transformation, excellence in customer service, and commitment to digital innovation and sustainability made JLR zero in for this assignment.
