Live polling conducted at the Automotive Logistics Global conference in Detroit showed a recognition that environmental sustainability will play a bigger part in future supply chains, and that total supply chain comprehension will be the most important skill to have over the next decade.

Delegates at the 2017 Automotive Logistics Global conference in Detroit voted live on questions composed by the Automotive Logistics team.

As the publication is celebrating its 20 year anniversary, poll questions also focused on significant changes over the past two decades, with most believing that logistics is more valued now than it has been in the past. Almost half of delegates said that order-to-delivery times had mainly decreased over the period, with more than a third of those present saying financial pressures had not changed over the same time period.
