Report Details: This report is based on analysis of financial balance sheet and income statement data within the Automotive industry, for the period of 2004-2016. The data is collected from YCharts. Tesla was excluded from the industry averages due to being an extreme outlier. Objective: To use financial balance sheet and income statement data to better understand the state of the automotive industry supply chains and to determine which companies’ supply chains did the best on the delivery of a portfolio of metrics over the last 13 years. Highlight: During the Great Recession, automotive companies faced strong declines in consumer spending. Companies across the board saw their revenue drop significantly during the 2004-2016 period. Those who redefined their manufacturing and distribution processes, drove strong balance sheet results. Others learned that doing traditional retail more efficiently was not enough. As a result only one company, Fuji Heavy Industries, made the list of Supply Chains to Admire award winners.
