JUST‐IN‐TIME OR JUST THE SAME? DEVELOPMENTS IN THE AUTO INDUSTRY – THE RETAILERS′ VIEW

Abstract

Noting moves towards just‐in‐time production methods in the UK passenger vehicle industry, this article considers the impact of such moves at the retail and distribution end of the supply chain. Based on interviews with a number of vehicle retailers selling cars manufactured both in the UK and overseas, it appears as if little progress towards true just‐in‐time (as practised by Toyota in Japan) is occurring.
