Focus on globilization at first Europe conference
Around 130 delegates attended the first Autologistics Europe conference in March. The event, held in Montreux, attracted speakers from carmakers such as Ford, BMW, Audi and GM, and suppliers such as Delphi, Robert Bosch and Cooper-Standard Automotive, as well as executives from logistics providers.
Although the coverage here focuses on order-to-delivery and globalization, there were also lively sessions in areas such as finished vehicle logistics, suppliers’ supply chains, plant logistics and service parts
The European Union session proved a bumpy ride for Peter Ruidisch, head of financial issues at the German Ministry of Transport, who had to bear the brunt of widespread criticism over Germany new road tax system being introduced later this year.
