AL FVL Spring 2021 Digital Edition – Coping strategies for a global crisis
The spring digital edition of Automotive Logistics and Finished Vehicle Logistics is out now, featuring comprehensive overviews of the main vehicle ports in continental Europe and the UK, as well as the maritime transport sector. Plus, we look at the latest packaging initiative supporting VW’s lithium-ion battery deliveries to VW Zwickau, Vijay Ratnaparkhe’s IT revolution at Bosch and talk to carmakers about supply chain lessons ten years on from the Fukushima earthquake disaster
Our spring digital edition of Automotive Logistics and Finished Vehicle Logistics takes account of the disruption caused to the European vehicle handling ports in 2020 but also looks at the investments in infrastructure and technology made during the year to make the future of port-based vehicle processing more flexible and sustainable. Sustainability is also becoming more important for the vessels calling at those ports and there are positive steps being made to clean up the transport mode through new fuels and bridging technologies to cut emissions. Advances in lithium battery packaging and in tier supplier production technology are also bringing more sustainable advances to the inbound logistics sector.
