The conference was attended by a host of senior decision makers, influencers, innovators and practitioners along with vehicle manufacturers, tier suppliers, LSPs and technology providers from across the automotive logistics sector in the UK and Europe. The event was an incredible opportunity to knowledge share, build relationships and gain a valuable understanding to support future success in the new automotive era.

Experts from across the industry ran Think Tanks throughout the day with practical, interactive group discussions on topics such as:

  • Dealing with Disruption
  • Making the most of Data
  • Finished Vehicles: Raising standards
  • Many Happy Returns: Container and Packaging Management
  • Finished Vehicles: Testing Times
  • The EV Supply Chain
  • Next Generation Warehouse
  • The road ahead for UK automotive

Professor Lenny Koh led the Think Tank for “#LogisticsForFuture: Cutting pollution in the supply chain” and presented the research and development that AREC UK have been involved in sustainability of automotive supply chain and logistics including SCEnAT Suites, transport and recycling, circular economy and Blockchain along with an insight into China’s Automobile Industrial Park.

Following on from the think tank sessions was an exclusive tour of the Jaguar plant, an exciting opportunity to see first-hand the entire manufacturing process for the high-performance F-Type, as well as gain an insight into how the plant is preparing to building the new, all-electric XJ starting next year.
