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.

One of the world’s biggest logistics companies, Kuwait headquartered Agility, recently announced a major new investment of $100 million over three years to develop and launch Shipa.com. The new digital platform will allow businesses, entrepreneurs and consumers to manage their freight, e-commerce, and urban deliveries online. Chairwoman for Agility, Henadi Al-Saleh said, “Shipa.com makes life easier through technology, whether you are a small business running your supply chain with a few clicks, or a consumer getting your shopping delivered with a few taps on your phone, Shipa.com makes logistics convenient, jargon-free, trackable, accountable and accessible.” Shipa.com will provide the following services: Shipa Freight that will allow small businesses to get instant and transparent freight quotes along with the ability to book, pay and track ocean and air shipments around the world on any mobile or another digital device. Shipa E-commerce enables online merchant’s access to the world’s most complex and fastest growing e-commerce networks. The service will integrate freight, fulfilment, delivery and returns solutions throughout the Arabian Gulf, along with additional reach in Africa and Europe planned for the future. Shipa Delivery will provide businesses and consumers with on-demand same-day, next-day or cross-border delivery across the whole region of Arabian Gulf. Al-Saleh added, “Logistics is the backbone of commerce. But it’s complex, and that complexity is disproportionately difficult for small businesses to navigate. Small businesses often lack access to the logistics resources, tools and solutions that larger businesses have,” “No wonder then, that we interviewed 800 small and medium-sized businesses around the world, we found that 78% wanted to see their logistics move online. Shipa helps close that gap, empowering small businesses to take advantage of the opportunities being created by the global digital economy.” Considered by Al-Saleh as the innovation arm of Agility, Shipa.com will hasten the introduction of technology, development of new digital products. Al-Saleh concluded, “Shipa.com is the marriage of Agility’s logistics expertise and resources and the digital-first capabilities of the Shipa platform. It offers enormous value for our customers and brings new value to our company.”
