AEC MAKES IT POSSIBLE

EXPERIENCE

We connect markets since 1996. As we have grown with the changing demands of the automotive world, we accumulated profound knowledge in all the aspects of modern vehicle distribution – ranging from production planning up to after-sales services.

SKILLS

Entering markets is related to certain legal practices. What are the regulations in a specific country? How to adapt to stricter crash test measures? How to choose sales outlets? AEC has solutions – and a network that is over 550 retail partners strong.

KNOWLEDGE

AEC’s optimized processes in homologation and technical conversion are great proof for our expertise on the key elements of our trade. The highest quality in vehicle processing on a constant level is what makes us unique and our customers successful.

CONTROL

AEC is not just a service provider for predisposed distributions. Our experts can help you determine the right size of a portfolio, what promotion is the most profitable, and which sales channels let you deliver the best possible customer experience.
