This special livestream will cover the major developments of vehicle-handling ports in North America, looking at the impact that the crisis has had on capacity, inventory, transport connections and vehicle processing, as well as the technology and best practice to optimise operations and improve quality. Featuring key data and insight from our FVL North American Ports digital edition, as well as expert insight from key stakeholders and decision makers.

The coronavirus crisis has brought considerable volatility to managing finished vehicle flows through US, Mexican and Canadian ports, including a lack of storage space as dealerships closed and disrupted sailing schedules early in the crisis, to today where many OEMs face shortages of some vehicle inventory. These challenges have underlined the need for advancements in real time network visibility, track and trace technology and scalable solutions to optimise logistics flows and satisfy consumer demand as it returns.

And just as before the crisis, OEM and processors are looking at technology, infrastructure and partners to increase throughput speed and improve quality in the North American port network.

This week’s show will feature insights into how leading automotive ports have adapted rapidly to manage the crisis, how they are using digital technologies and investing in smart infrastructure to better support the automotive supply chain.

Gain valuable insights into:

  • Data on vehicle volumes and automotive investment at North American ports
  • How OEMs and ports are using technology to manage capacity constraints, raise quality and increase throughput
  • Improving visibility of vehicles flows and shipping
  • Optimising scheduling, yard management and inland transport
  • The impact on ports of changing vehicle types and markets, including EVs, connected cars and changing trade patterns
