Penske Logistics is a long-time Gold Sponsor of the Automotive Logistics Global Conference. The 2016 event took place in Detroit.
Penske Logistics and Novelis discussed the collaboration required to help plan, develop, operate and support a new leading-edge, 24/7 closed-loop aluminum supply chain for a top automaker.
Conference attendees got an inside look at this innovative and highly collaborative supply chain approach as representatives from Novelis and Penske Logistics participated in a panel titled “Supply Chain Management and Communication.”
Penske executive John Mercer told the assembled audience: “The overarching goal is to keep this moving non-stop in a very time-sensitive environment. We had to take into consideration safety, weather, drivers’ hours-of-service restrictions and many other factors.”
Separately, Penske Logistics also led a “Think Tank” breakout session regarding the future of the automotive supply chain.
The 2017 conference will take place September 19 – 21, at the Detroit Marriott in the Renaissance Center, Detroit MI.
