Over the past decade, Mexico grew to become the 6th largest global vehicle producer and 4th largest exporter. But slowdowns in its major export markets, changing trade terms in North America and new technology are set to challenge and transform the automotive sector in the 2020s. Our opening session identifies the key disruptions and developments, from digitalization to impacts from the US Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA formerly NAFTA), that logistics and supply chain managers need to tackle to ensure Mexico remains competitive and that its supply chain continues to thrive.

|Thu, 27 Feb 09:00 AM - 10:15 AM||Investing in the future: Working with government, suppliers and providers to build sustainable networks Session|
Mexico could not become a major global exporter without a solid logistics infrastructure. And yet, the country has deficiencies in port, rail and air, as well as modern facilities for handling parts and finished vehicles. If it is to keep up with customer needs, as well as with changing technology like EVs, industry and government will have to work together on the right investment in infrastructure, connectivity and facilities. This session will include presentations on key needs, case studies on optimising current infrastructure and Q&A on where resources should be focused.
