Geodis Wilson Sponsors Automotive Logistics Event in Bonn

The global multimodal service provider Geodis Wilson will be a gold sponsor at this year’s Automotive Logistics Conference in Bonn, Germany, which takes place at the Kameha Grand Hotel from 11-13 March 2014.  Mark Ellis, the Global Industry Director for Automotive, will be addressing the conference and will be joined by several representatives of Geodis Wilson.  

Now at its 12th year, the conference is part of the worldwide Automotive Logistics series and will be host to some 300 senior executive participants from the industry. It is the premier meeting place for OEMs and Tier suppliers to meet logistics service providers, while the supply chains across the greater continent have undergone radical re-shaping over the past five years, to reflect both the shifting to eastern Europe of production locations and as a response to the prolonged downturn in demand.

Speaking prior to this key event, Mark Ellis said, “Geodis Wilson understands that the automotive industry brings its own set of challenges. We stand behind our company slogan “Expect More”. This goes beyond a brand promise; it is our commitment to the industry. We help to drive the automotive business forward with an innovative approach to analyze supply chains and understand logistics needs for our customers.”

Ellis will speak during Session 2B on Wednesday, 12th March from 11.00-12.15 on Globalisation.  With the debate of Global vs Local in Europe still being highly contentious, this session will assess what tier suppliers are doing in accordance to this change, why they are doing it and what can be expected for the future.
