Carmakers are striving for greater supply chain resiliency in the face of widescale disruption, including through localising manufacturing and increasing inventory. However, OEMs cannot implement these decisions quickly or without impacting free cashflow and freight networks. So, what does a resilient automotive supply chain today look like in terms of logistics planning, capacity and partnerships? See for yourself in this session with General Motors, automotive supplier IAC Group and major logistics providers DSV and Ceva Logistics, as leaders discuss strategies for resilience, including securing logistics capacity across the global supply chain, managing equipment and labour shortages, systems upgrades and other critical steps necessary to keep the supply chain moving today and tomorrow.

Learn about the network changes, coordination and investments in assets and people necessary to adapt to the era of disruption while preparing for long-term transformation towards electrification and sustainability.
