Despite vehicle sales forecasts being on something of a plateau right now, there is still great potential in North America’s vibrant automotive industry for new technology to boost the sector’s efficiency and productivity – and with that its profitability and growth.

Making the most of all that industry 4.0 has to offer, however, depends heavily on having the right people in place to apply the vision, drive things forward and transform your supply chain.

Finding, inspiring, training and retaining the right people to make it all happen is probably the biggest single challenge facing automotive logistics organisations today, in light of the major opportunities and widespread disruption such technology is poised to bring to the sector.

Taking place on September 18th-20th in Detroit, this year’s Automotive Logistics Global conference will examine just how vehicle manufacturers, tier suppliers, logistics service providers and infrastructure operators can transform their supply chains by concentrating on the human factor, therefore.
