The North American automotive market has shown resilience in the face of the pandemic, while vehicle production in the region has been running at high rates to make up for shutdowns. The industry’s sustainable recovery and future success depend more than ever on high-performing supply chains equipped to deal with the transformation ahead that is evident both in mobility as well as across manufacturing and logistics.
With so much uncertainty to manage, 2021 is set to be a critical year across all regions of North America. OEMs and tier suppliers in the US will be managing a tight balance of inventory while preparing facilities, logistics networks and partners to launch new vehicles and technology. Mexico’s relevance to the automotive supply chain is more important than ever as the country continues to produce and export high volumes of parts and vehicles, and as OEMs and suppliers depend on reliable, efficient and stable logistics to ensure future investments. Canada, as well as being an important market with complex logistics requirements, is also set for renewed growth in the 2020s, as manufacturers look to the country’s automotive hub to develop, build and ship a new generation of connected and electric vehicles.
Join us at Automotive Logistics & Supply Chain North America Live to gain valuable insight, connections and market data across inbound, production and outbound supply chains, while interacting with industry decision makers across the US, Mexico and Canada.
