Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) has become one of the most competitive and dynamic regions in the global automotive industry.

As the region continues to develop high-quality, low-cost manufacturing operations, carmakers are increasingly looking east, rather than west for the most appropriate locations from which to support their drive towards electric and connected vehicles, greater supply chain digitalisation and fresh efficiency gains.

The future of the automotive logistics sector in Central and Eastern Europe now rests on four key issues, all of which will be put under the microscope at this autumn’s inaugural Automotive Logistics Central and Eastern Europe summit.


Carmakers including Audi, JLR, Mercedes-Benz and VW have invested strongly in the CEE to date, as have tier suppliers such as Bosch and thyssenkrupp. Keeping such investments going and attracting fresh ones to take the CEE automotive sector to ever greater heights will depend on creating and maintaining strong, competitive and agile supply chains, however.

As the automotive sector moves ever closer to the production of mass-market electric, connected and autonomous vehicles, as well as to greater manufacturing automation and supply chain digitalisation, the ability of the CEE region to keep up and indeed lead technological change will be critical.

With skills shortages becoming ever more acute right around the global automotive sector, many CEE countries are now struggling to secure the talent they need to drive their automotive industry forward. Meanwhile, rising wages are threatening to upset their highly competitive business models. Can the CEE win the battle for the people and skills it now requires?

The CEE region’s connections to both the industrial powerhouses of Western Europe and the dominant markets to the east – especially China – put it in an excellent position to stimulate further growth in its automotive industry. But to succeed, it will need to resolve many issues around reliability in its road, rail, sea and air links.
