As a leading provider of automotive logistics and supply chain solutions, Penske Logistics is proud to be a major sponsor of the annual Center for Automotive Research Management Briefing Seminars held each summer in Traverse City, Michigan.
The annual conference brings leading automakers, key automotive suppliers, leading industry academic and economic researchers, and media together to discuss the hottest industry topics, challenges, opportunities, and technologies the automotive manufacturing sector faces today and well into the future.
Topics at recent CAR MBS conferences have ranged from the future of autonomous vehicles and vehicle light-weighting to developing world-class manufacturing processes as well as staying ahead of new automotive industry regulations for emissions and safety, economic forecasts, international expansion efforts by OEMs, suppliers and logistics providers to improving and enhancing supplier relations.
Each year, Penske also sponsors a workshop. This session provides the conference's attendees with insights from thought-leaders and top economists regarding the automotive industry outlook for the current year as well as near-term and long-term industry sales projections and deep insights into consumer buying behaviors and consumer trends.
