The fallout of the Covid pandemic, consequent component shortages and freight bottlenecks, and now geopolitical uncertainty, are all testing the automotive supply chain. Those pressures are coming at time when the industry is trying to build that supply chain into something more sustainable in support of the drive to making cleaner cars.


Despite the problems and because of the ingenuity shown in solving them, the North American automotive industry could emerge more competitive, transparent and sustainable – thanks to increasingly resilient and connected supply chains, and closer partnerships across stakeholders and functions. Renewed investment in infrastructure, localisation and skills are also powering this resurgence.

Automotive Logistics and Supply Chain Global returns to the MGM Grand Detroit on September 20-22 to explore this renaissance in supply chain management and how logistics can succeed in a fast-changing environment. Don’t miss the premier gathering for supply chain management decisions makers in North America and beyond.

Speakers already confirmed for this 22nd annual conference include Nissan’s Chris Styles, vice-president of supply chain management for North America, Kelly Bysouth, chief supply chain officer at leading tier one supplier IAC Group, and Raman Metha, chief information officer and senior vice-president at another leading tier one, Johnson Electric.

They will be joining other top executives from global carmakers, suppliers and logistics providers, as well as those representing the digital technology, which is now so much a part of the automotive industry. Discussions will range from the strategies being used to mitigate risk, the key technologies being used to do so in supply chain design and logistics operations, and the commitment to carbon-zero objectives. The conference will also cover the transition to digital, greener networks and how to upskill logistics talent to deliver on the changing needs of the automotive industry.

The event features in-depth interviews with top management at major carmakers, tier one suppliers and officials, along with panels, workshops and networking with logistics experts from 3PLs, carriers, packaging, equipment and technology specialists.
