Can North American vehicle logistics ports get past Industry 3.0?

There are growing capacity demands on ports but many OEMs, processors and logistics carriers depend on manual processes. Volkswagen’s Michael D’Angelo doesn’t think it needs to be that way.


There is high demand for vehicle storage capacity and efficient throughput at North America’s vehicle ports, but port processors, logistics providers and OEMs still manage many processes through manual and analogue tools. In this session, Volkswagen Group of America’s Michael D’Angelo and tracking specialist Cognosos’s Adrian Jennings challenge the sector to up its game, as enhancements in vehicle processes and technology have the potential to transform terminal ecosystems into connected and integrated hubs with improved capacity and reduced dwell time.

And while digitalisation opportunities could give OEMs opportunities to get more out of existing space, the network continues to evolve: Finn Roden presents details on the opening of a brand new vehicle-handling facility, the AutoMOBILE Terminal in Mobile, Alabama, which opened earlier in June.
