Join the conversation #ALSCLIVE
The 20th anniversary ALSC Europe was the largest, most significant version of the event so far. With major speakers and attendees from virtually all of Europe’s major OEMs and startups, and many tier-1s and LSPs, the community came together to address issues from capacity to new technology opportunities to changing trade and localisation topics around electrification and sustainability.
Following years of disruption, cost rises and complex geopolitics, OEMs like BMW stressed that logistics is now a competitive advantage and needed to lead from the front when it comes to manufacturing and strategy decisions. That was also why Aston Martin and Toyota stressed the role that logistics & supply chain should play at board level and in driving investment decisions, and why JLR is investing so heavily in upgrading its manufacturing and logistics systems.
Audi made it clear that for automotive supply chains to be truly sustainable, companies needed to follow long-term strategies and embrace a holistic view of costs and risks, including energy sources. Renault and Bosch each demonstrated the advantages of their digital transformation, including more predictive logistics management. JLR and tier-1 Plastic Omnium, meanwhile, stressed the importance of close sharing and communication between OEMs, suppliers and LSPs. And many OEMs and providers made it clear that long-term partnerships would be necessary to secure the confidence to invest in capacity, technology and services.
