About the Automotive Logistics Global Conference

According to the conference organizers from Automotive Logistics Magazine:

“The resurgence of U.S. automotive sales has brought with it a new look at the right location for vehicle manufacturing. An awareness of total supply chain cost – which includes factors like the risk and expense of natural disasters and man-made disruptions – is now standard operating procedure. The result is new investment in production plants across North America with Mexico in the spotlight but by no means alone. It means re-shaping the tier supplier base as China prices ramp upwards. And, it means new flows of finished vehicles, for example to and from Europe.”

Penske Logistics is one of the premier logistics services providers to leading automotive manufacturers around the world including the likes of BMW, Ford Motor Company, General Motors, and to Tier 1 automotive suppliers like Delphi.
