The autumn digital edition of Automotive Logistics features in-depth insight into the adoption of digital tools to provide greater visibility in the supply chain, how new sales models will affect logistics, how the workforce has become more flexible due to the pandemic and much more.
The first Automotive Logistics and Supply Chain Live virtual conference is here, with more than 70 speakers and 30 sessions. Read this overview for insight into the key topics and theme, including electric vehicle and battery supply chains, sustainable supply chains, digital transformation and supply chain resilience. Featuring interviews and keynotes from leading carmakers, tier suppliers, logistics providers and supply chain and trade experts.
Collaboration between the automotive, logistics and the tech sectors is growing by the day, with the coronavirus crisis accelerating digitalisation across the supply chain. Our latest digital edition explores systems standards and tech innovations, including new communication protocols for vehicle logistics in Europe, and a range of new supply chain technology at Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi, Audi México, VW Zwickau, Seat Martorell and Renault F-1.
Last year the top vehicle handling ports in North America continued to deal with capacity issues and volume fluctuations while the US, Mexico and Canada hammered out a new trade agreement. Our review takes in the top 30 ports and analyses what impact the coronavirus has had on trade in the first half of 2020.
Our review of activity in 2019 at Europe’s vehicle handling ports includes insight into how Zeebrugge and Le Havre dealt with capacity issues through investments in infrastructure and digital technology, and how ports in Spain maintained throughput during the European downturn thanks to a resilient export trade.
This issue contains a review of top US trucking companies as well as an in-depth look at rail investment across the country. We also investigate the challenges and opportunities of automotive logistics in Mexico, with podcasts and video interviews from the recent Automotive Logistics Mexico City conference. Other features cover aspects of technology such as satellite tracking, an alternative type of electric vehicle battery and autonomous driving.
This edition looks at inbound, outbound and aftermarket aspects of rising electric vehicle production, plus the legislative jungle that needs to be navigated by logistics service providers. There is an OEM focus on BMW’s plan to bring its battery supply closer to its vehicle assembly as well as a broader investigation into how vehicle-makers are attempting to build a sustainable supply chain.
The automotive supply chain is moving faster than ever towards electrification and digital transformation. Following our Automotive Logistics & Supply Chain Live virtual conference, this edition explores the key changes, investments and ambitions for OEMs, tier suppliers and logistics as they adapt production and business models – and manage through capacity and operational challenges in the wake of the crisis. Featuring interviews, videos and insight from leading executives at Volvo Cars, Lynk&Co, Volkswagen Group, Daimler, Yazaki, Hyundai and much more. COMING IN NOVEMBER.
