In addition, in Saudi Arabia where the case takes place, the auto parts sector is also changing.

To be able to plan the new strategy, the case presents information about the company’s current strategy, the problems it is facing, the sector, the country and the market. Interviews with one of the executives, animations of the company’s distribution model and detailed informative maps of Saudi Arabia maps will help students to make their decision about the future logistic and operations strategy.
