Connected, integrated, predictive
Digitalising North America’s end-to-end automotive supply chain

Transformation of automotive supply chains continues apace in North America and beyond. The development of electrified and software-defined vehicles and increasing competition is leading to a radical rethink of the very nature of supply chains and logistics. That includes:

  • how supply chains are designed and work;
  • how they are managed;
  • the technology and digital infrastructure supporting them.

    The challenge

    The complex nature of domestic and international value chains, new materials, software and suppliers often collides with the need for speed to market, efficiency, regulations and sustainability.

    This causes a critical requirement to refocus on creating and developing digital supply chains which are not just responsive, but predictive; not just disruptive, but transformational; not just environmentally friendly, but efficient, competitive and sustainable in the long run.

    Add to this, national and global disruptions (from strikes to component shortages to wars and conflict), technological advances and barriers, logistics and labour capacity shortages, and the need to take a long-term view through the prism of recent experiences, stakeholders across the automotive OEM and supplier value chain have a lot to think about and to work on together across departments and functions.

    Looking for solutions

    The inaugural Automotive Logistics & Supply Chain Digital Strategies North America conference will provide a platform for knowledge-sharing and discussion to:

  • align on plans and requirements;
  • drive long-term investment in digital transformation;
  • introduce advanced data and visibility tools;
  • and develop the skills and working culture to succeed despite high volatility.

    Who you'll be joining

    Senior representatives of OEMs and suppliers will convene to discuss the biggest challenges to digital transformation, and also assess the role of technology in facilitating their end-game strategies; from the IT and digital ecosystem to support optimised logistics, cross-departmental and supplier visibility and the huge opportunities in areas such as simulation and artificial intelligence.

    Join us for this North America event with high-level discussions, intellectual discourse, and solution-finding sessions.
