Energising a new era for the supply chain
Continuous innovation in production and distribution operations as well as vehicle technology itself will be critical to remaining relevant in tomorrow’s more challenging automotive landscape.
Maintaining a truly connected supply chain – especially in terms of data flows – will be key to providing the efficiency gains needed in the automotive logistics networks of tomorrow.
Europe’s continued success on the global automotive stage will depend on its ability to stay ruthlessly competitive, despite the growing challenge from other regions worldwide.
As regulators and customers demand ever higher environmental standards, the automotive sector –and the logistics networks that support it – must lead the field in sustainability.
Last year’s conference in Germany was attended by over 300delegates, including representatives from many of Europe’s leading vehicle-makers, tier suppliers, infrastructure operators, technology specialists and logistics service providers.
