Penske Logistics served as premier sponsor of the Automotive Logistics South America Conference for the second year in a row. It took place on December 6, 2016 at the Tivoli Hotel in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Penske exhibited and appeared on a pair of industry panels.
This conference connects automotive OEMs, tier suppliers, policymakers and logistics service providers, where they will share best practices for running more efficient auto supply chains.
"We continue to be committed to helping improve supply chains, and to connecting carmakers and tier suppliers with their service providers," said Louis Yiakoumi, publisher of the Automotive Logistics group.
Paulo Sarti, Penske Logistics South America managing director, appeared in two sessions this year.
In the first presentation, "Developing the Right Supply Chain for South America," Sarti highlighted the company’s lead logistics provider services. These experts, who included executives from global car makers, examined how to best support innovation, technology and opportunities in the current economic climate.
As part of the closing presentation in "20/20 Vision," Sarti looked ahead and offered his insights as to the state of the automotive supply chain into the near future.
Fabricio Orrigo, Penske sales director, led a think tank session at the conference about collaborative logistics, and the challenges associated with implementing a shared auto supply chain network.
