For the past several years, members of our staff have attended the Finished Vehicle Logistics North American Conference. This year, we’re looking forward to gathering at the Hyatt Regency in Newport Beach, California, from June 2-4 to network, learn about trends in automotive logistics, and also share our knowledge.
This conference is hosted by Automotive Logistics, an international magazine founded in 1998 that provides news, industry intelligence and connections in print, in person and online to help logistics professionals across the globe do their job better. In addition to the North America conference, they host events in Germany, Russia and China, among other places.
According to materials provided by the event organizers, “The conference brings together over 350 senior executives from OEMs and service providers, and is the principal North American forum for determining the processes and practices of moving cars.”
The conference speakers include an impressive list of experts and executives from such organizations as the U.S. Department of Transportation, General Motors, BMW of North America, Toyota Logistics Services, Mercedes-Benz USA, CTM Worldwide, Cars Delivery Network, Enterprise Holdings, Nationwide, Glovis America, American Trucking Association and MetroGistics.
That’s right. Our very own Scott Naz, co-founder and managing partner, will be participating in a panel discussion on June 3 entitled, “Rightsizing for The New Normal.” Moderated by Automotive Logistics Editor Christopher Ludwig, a group of distinguished panelists will discuss how in this environment of strong sales growth, rightsizing capacity presents various challenges and requires rethinking how to manage networks to gain optimal efficiency.
Scott will draw from his extensive vehicle-transport experience and share his insights on trends, technology and operational efficiency.
Along with Scott, other attendees in our group will include:
William Billiter, Managing Partner
Dallas Knepp, Chief Operating Officer, Precision Motor Transport Group
Jason Caporrino, Operating Executive, Corinthian Capital
Martha Garcia-Perry, Director, Account Management
Adam Laura, Director, Strategic Accounts
