Join the discussion to hear key data and recommendations and ask questions to our special guest panel.
As production restarts and government attempt to reopen economies supply chain executives are facing the huge task of planning volumes, investments and capacity in the face of extremely uncertain demand. In view of this complex situation, we will share our updated global outlook for vehicle sales with insight on major markets, produced by our business intelligence unit, Automotive from Ultima Media.
Demand volatility is just one of the key challenges facing automotive supply chain leaders, along with financial risk in the supply base, differing restrictions across countries and states, and many new health and safety protocols that impact on production and logistics. But the automotive industry is not alone in this challenge. How are other industries, such as high tech or retail, coping with the changes? Is supply chain used as more of strategic advantage in other sectors compared to automotive?
We will look at both automotive and non-automotive examples to understand the strategic technology and process impacts that supply chain stakeholders should consider to help mitigate risks during the crisis, and to emerge from it stronger.
