OEMs accelerate use of existing digital tools to manage vehicle logistics disruption

Ryan purman, nissan, Dan Gosson, inform

Nissan vehicle logistics manager Ryan Purman explains how the OEM is changing paradigms for vehicle logistics in the US, and Inform’s Dan Gosson points to opportunities in telematics and artificial intelligence.


A fast-recovering market, semiconductor and material shortages, logistics bottlenecks and truck diver shortages are making continuous disruption the new normal for north American vehicle logistics. But OEMs such as Nissan are seizing the chance to make improvements: and often from some of the very tools that have been at the fingertips of logistics managers for years. 

In this session, Ryan Purman discusses visibility and optimisation tools that are helping Nissan better track performance, cost and lead time across its vehicle logistics supply chain, including innovative pilot programmes aimed at helping to improve work-life balance for truck drivers. Dan Gosson at software specialist Inform also discusses how smart technology, vehicle telematics and hybrid-AI tools are enabling greater network management despite the disruptions.
