Building Solutions for Sustainable Supply Chains
23 - 24 May 2022
Prague - Cubex Centrum
21st Odette International Automotive Conference for
Supply Chain Professionals and Digital Transformation Experts
Few people could have predicted the way the world is today. Geopolitical turmoil, trade wars, real wars, pandemics, rapidly evolving technology and social movements demanding drastic reductions in emissions have resulted in an automotive production environment that is more volatile than at any other time in its history. This volatility means that those who wish to survive must have a flexible and sustainable supply chain capable of reacting quickly and withstanding the pressures of an uncertain and fast-moving environment.
Supply Chain Management in the automotive industry is attracting more investment than ever and has evolved from player to orchestra director, federating internal and external partners. In taking this leading position, supply chain managers have quickly realised that digitalisation and standardisation are two sides of the same coin and that collaboration across the industry is vital to success.
digitalisation is not the only road to supply chain sustainability and it is
clear that other, dare we say more traditional, technologies still have a significant
role to play in the drive to save the planet.
Join Odette2022 at the fabulous Cubex Centrum in Prague to find out how major players in the global supply chain are using their collective intelligence to build solutions capable of delivering an agile, holistic and sustainable approach to the unprecedented challenges facing the industry today.
