Automotive Logistics Forum 2022 in Friedrichshafen: Finally back in person!
After the Forum had to be held online last year, the important industry meeting of automotive production, logistics, and supply chain management was finally able to take place in person again.
The in-person event was much to the delight of Monika Thielemann-Hald, Global Vice President of Automotive & Agricultural Logistics:
“In the last two years, we were not able to bring our developments regarding automotive trends to the market as desired due to Covid-19. Therefore, it was clear that we wanted to be at the Automotive Logistics Forum with our own booth to present our logistics solutions on a broad scale.”
For two days, more than 40 speakers from OEMs, suppliers, logistics service providers, consultancies, and research centers discussed current industry developments, trends, and the future of the automotive supply chain.
A total of seven colleagues from Hellmann Automotive Logistics attended the Forum delighted to meet up with customers, partners, and suppliers again. “At the same time, the small automotive world acted reserved due to the current crisis situations," reports Florian Rybak, Regional Director Automotive Europe.
The consequences of the pandemic, the war in Ukraine, and rising energy prices are having far-reaching effects on the German automotive industry and the logistics sector as well. Problems in the supply chains are causing massive disruptions for OEMs and suppliers. All the more reason for the automotive industry to take new, innovative paths to successfully master challenges in the future. Accordingly, digitalization, transparency, and collaboration were the focus of the event.
"The Automotive Logistics Forum was the perfect place to discuss precisely these topics and get new input. Particularly exciting, was the discussion about a necessary deceleration of the logistics chains in order to give the entire industry the opportunity to stabilize itself again and establish reliable supply chains. Even the vehicle manufacturers eagerly joined the debate. This is an absolute turning point!"
says Florian Rybak.
Rybak’s personal highlight: "Of course, the joint public viewing of the Euroleague final in the ZF Forum!"
