North American ports and rail yards are wrestling with their space constraints and an increasing driver shortage threatens to put the brakes on transporter capacity. Which means the challenges facing automotive OEMs and logistics specialists in the fast-changing vehicle import-export market have never been greater.
This year’s Finished Vehicle Logistics Import-Export one-day meeting will once again be held in the Port of Baltimore in August and will provide a unique opportunity to combine business with relaxation. Now in its third year, the value of the event is well established. “This has been the most informative conference I have attended,” said Stacey Masuda, sales logistics supervisor at American Honda Motor, after last year’s event. “If you’re in the auto import-export business, you should be at this conference,” added Sean Mahoney, director of marketing at the Philadelphia Regional Port Authority.
The single, all-inclusive delegate fee includes:
• access to all speaker presentations and Q&A sessions
• networking lunch and coffee breaks
• messaging, video and comment via the in-conference app
• post-conference drinks reception
• soft copies of speaker presentations to download after the event.
The conference is part of the worldwide Automotive Logistics series, which for the outbound sector also includes the Finished Vehicle Logistics North America conference in Newport Beach, CA and the major Automotive LogisticsGlobal event in Detroit. Worldwide, the series includes conferences in Mexico, South America, Europe, Russia, UK, China and India.
