Global supply chains are more exposed than ever as container constraints, material shortages and reduced network capacities are resulting in rising costs and longer lead times. These challenges are forcing automakers and tier suppliers to rethink and adapt their operations, from inventory approaches, logistics flexibility and expedited transport modes – and eventually even new sourcing and manufacturing decisions.

In this panel, experts from North American tier supplier American Axle, premium freight supplier Quick (part of Kuehne + Nagel) and container shipping and logistics giant Maersk share valuable insights on network redesigns, modal shifts, rising cost mitigation and advanced planning, to understand how to regain control of global supply chains.
