The automotive industry has entered a “New Normal” period, with large shifts in the landscape for demand, supply and competition. Despite dramatic improvements, automakers still operate supply chains in which real demand is not synchronized with supply.

The problem gets worse when there is a high degree of uncertainty around demand and supply. In this session the presenter will examine the current state of the industry and offer a perspective on how a well-managed supply chain puts the automaker in the driver’s seat.

In this webinar you will hear how the industry can grow under these conditions through a well-managed supply chain which:

  • streamlines workflows;
  • optimizes parts distribution;
  • puts automotive and industrial suppliers and distributors in the driver's seat;
  • prepares automotive companies for new technologies, such as “the internet of things”.
