The Logistics Committee is the body that controls all logistics activities within the VDA. It is thus responsible for the most important interface between the manufacturers' and suppliers' companies. The purpose of the logistics work in the VDA is to maintain and increase the competitiveness of the automotive industry. The committee is responsible for developing medium- to long-term strategies for the supply chain, for identifying future topics, for allocating project resources, for approving project funds, and for adapting the working group structure to current requirements. For this purpose, the committee meets four times a year with the logistics working group chairs to steer activities and exchange ideas on the resources needed. Furthermore, the Logistics Committee is responsible for the thematic orientation of the Automotive Logistics Forum. The main focal points of the committee's work are the electronic and digital networking of companies, the standardization of documents and business processes, the improvement of transport policy conditions, the increase in sustainability in warehousing and transport processes, and the early standardization of future technologies.
