Following the devastation to industry in 2020 caused by the pandemic, the European automotive industry’s number 1 priority is to revive the market, enabling production volumes to return to pre-COVID levels, preserving jobs and it’s long term future. But this can’t come at any cost – recovery must align with the new European Green Deal and continue to allow and encourage investment in new technology and greener, sustainable solutions across businesses from new products such as electric vehicles to supply chains and manufacturing footprints.
This is a hugely challenging yet exciting time for the supply chain, manufacturing and logistics sector, with transformation necessary for survival and long-term prosperity but also offering the greatest opportunities for lasting positive impacts at a pan-European socio-economic scale. The actions taken and decisions made now will define the future of the European automotive industry and its place in the global market.
Join the regions’ automotive supply chain leaders and experts for the latest intelligence and insights to help you shape your strategies to make your supply chains more resilient, more robust, more agile and more equipped to accelerate the recovery, re-build a sustainable future and grasp the opportunities.
From battling through Covid, to shifting to more opportunities in connectivity, it’s a new era for North American vehicle logistics. Rarely has the industry stood on the cusp of so much change and opportunity. And yet, like the wider automotive industry, rarely has the vehicle logistics sector faced so much uncertainty in economic headwinds, new regulations, technology, consumer expectations and returns on investment.
In this context, vehicle logistics will play a much more strategic role than ever before. To succeed, the sector needs to move faster, with greater visibility, and more flexibly. OEMs, logistics and technology providers will also need to work together more closely to share data, planning and technology to keep the supply chain flowing efficiently.
That is why the Finished Vehicle Logistics North America Live 2021 conference has never been more important. It is the only event that brings together the entire FVL sector across stakeholders, including decision-makers from OEMs, trucking, rail, port, ocean, IT and regulators. Depending on the pandemic situation, you’ll have the opportunity to connect in person in California, but no matter what all participants will be able to join via our digital platform. Get ready for this new era!
For more than 20 years, our global conference has been the most important gathering for automotive logistics and supply chain professionals across North America. Now, the event has been entirely redefined for the digital, post-Covid age: a truly international platform bringing together speakers, guests, insight and participants from major regions to discuss strategy and operations for the transformation of our sector.
After 2020 saw more than 1,000 participants and 30 sessions, ALSC Live Global 2021 will connect our year-round programme of livestreams, digital editions, conferences and insight to this marquee event. We expect a great in-person gathering again in Detroit, but no matter what all participants will be able to join via our digital platform.
As the world continues to manage, reflect on and recover from the crisis, the spotlight remains firmly focused on redefining partnerships, and building supply chains that are more resilient, agile, digital and designed for a sustainable future.
Join automotive supply chain leaders and experts for the latest insights and connections, to debate the areas of recovery, what needs to be reinvented, how to accelerate growth and transformation in this new and dynamic environment.
