ŠKODA AUTO logistics: The digital transformation
ŠKODA AUTO a.s. is one of the largest Czech automotive manufacturers, and this year, it’s celebrating a major anniversary – 125 years since its founding. And those years also make it one of the longest continuously active automakers worldwide. Its registered seat is in Mladá Boleslav, which is also home to its largest factory. It has two other Czech plants as well: one in Kvasiny and one in Vrchlabí. In 1991, it became a part of the Volkswagen concern. For many years now, it has had the largest revenue of any company in the Czech Republic. It has also been the nation’s largest exporter and one of its largest employers.
Jiří Cee has been employed at Škoda for many years as well – 40 years, to be precise. He has worked a variety of positions during those years, and for the last 20, he has been this brand’s Head of Logistics. Today he’s responsible for over 3,000 workers at plants both nationally and abroad. He’s also the guarantor for Volkswagen’s Green Logistics project, and he plays an active part in improving the environment. Under his leadership, Škoda’s Logistics department has won several major awards for logistics innovation projects. In 2019, he earned the highest honour in his field – the exceptional Logistics Hall of Fame award for his lifetime logistics contributions.
