The global semi-conductor shortage stopped automotive production in its tracks and highlighted weak links in the supply chain and important risks to consider in the planning and network design process. In this session, hear how Nissan navigated the global chip shortage and improved the semi-conductor supply chain. Hear from Gerardo de la Torre Garcia, leader of Nissan Americas Semiconductor Supply Crisis Management Strategy on how the carmarker developed strategies, secured material supply and managed global supply chain operations to maximise production opportunities in Mexico and worldwide and limit assembly line stoppages. Understand the key objections his team set out to achieve, the important lessons learnt and how they can help mitigate current and future logistics and supply chain challenges.
De la Torre is then joined by a panel of experts from time:matters and Ryder to discuss the strategies and tools enabling improved planning and visibility of the supply chain, and crucially how these can mitigate disruption when the next crises hits.
