Beetles in boxes: 70 years of CKD car exports by Volkswagen
Wolfsburg is the nerve center
This is how it works: all the orders received from overseas plants are collected centrally in Wolfsburg. The supply management team ensures that the vehicle parts are available from the European plants and suppliers. The parts are then bundled and packaged at one of the eight distribution centers, loaded into containers and shipped by sea, rail or air to overseas countries and Russia, where they are assembled. These eight packaging centers ship a total of about 1.7 million cubic meters of goods every year, corresponding to about 25,000 overseas containers. All in all, about 90 different vehicle projects of overseas plants are supplied via CKD from Europe.
