The aftermarket is a reliably-stable part of the automotive sector with greater margins than car sales. However, maintaining brand loyalty with the customer base is an ongoing challenge.

Carmakers and suppliers need to keep up with the latest technological advances to maintain quality while achieving faster delivery times, so customers can be retained and profit secured in a competitive market that will become defined by greater complexity over the coming years.

You are cordially invited to join a webinar featuring two experts on aftersales and service parts from VW Group of America who will share their views on the future of aftersales and service parts supply and logistics.

The webinar was split in three parts:

1. A vision for the future of aftersales:
- new mobility models
- e-commerce
- customer expectations
- carmaker strategies.

2. Its impact on supply, logistics and distribution of aftersales and service parts.
- Quality vs. speed
- Same day delivery
- IT & technological solutions.

3. Questions and answers
