Following the devastation to industry in 2020 caused by the pandemic, the European automotive industry’s number 1 priority is to revive the market, enabling production volumes to return to pre-COVID levels, preserving jobs and it’s long term future. But this can’t come at any cost – recovery must align with the new European Green Deal and continue to allow and encourage investment in new technology and greener, sustainable solutions across businesses from new products such as electric vehicles to supply chains and manufacturing footprints.
This is a hugely challenging yet exciting time for the supply chain, manufacturing and logistics sector, with transformation necessary for survival and long-term prosperity but also offering the greatest opportunities for lasting positive impacts at a pan-European socio-economic scale. The actions taken and decisions made now will define the future of the European automotive industry and its place in the global market.
In April we brought together the regions’ automotive supply chain leaders and experts for the latest intelligence and insights to help shape strategies to make supply chains more resilient, more robust, more agile and more equipped to accelerate the recovery, re-build a sustainable future and grasp the opportunities.
