Welcome to the Automotive Logistics Global conference 2019 

It has been 20 years since Automotive Logistics held its first global conference in Detroit and there have been some big changes in the industry since then, both in terms of the technology used to move, track and store parts and vehicles, and in terms of the political environment influencing production and logistics strategy.

At the same time the automotive industry is also going through one the greatest transformations in its history. Passenger and commercial vehicles are becoming more digitally connected, driven by electric powertrains and soon to be more autonomous, all which have implications for the supply chain. Ride-share and fractional ownership models are redefining mobility and shifting the market toward fleet ownership rather than personal ownership.

As we celebrate the 20th anniversary of Automotive Logistics Global – now renamed Automotive Logistics Global Detroit – we are entering a new automotive era.

Taking place on September 10-12, this year’s Automotive Logistics Global Detroit conference will examine just how vehicle manufacturers, tier suppliers, logistics service providers and those in charge of infrastructure are preparing to transform the automotive supply chain over the next 20 years and deal with the disruption and opportunities that the transformation will bring. Discussions will focus on practical solutions for your business and that of your partners. This is why this year’s theme will be:

Building for the future – practical tools for the automotive industry.
