Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) has become one of the most competitive and dynamic regions in the global automotive industry.

As the region continues to develop high-quality, low-cost manufacturing operations, carmakers are increasingly looking east, rather than west for the most appropriate locations from which to support their drive towards electric and connected vehicles, greater supply chain digitalization and fresh efficiency gains.

The future of the automotive logistics sector in Central and Eastern Europe now rests on four key issues, all of which will be put under the microscope at this autumn’s inaugural Automotive Logistics Central and Eastern Europe summit.

DS Smith will participate –as a Silver Sponsor– to the Automotive Logistics Central and Eastern Europe summit, which will be held in Budapest, Hungary, on the 13th - 14th November 2018.

  • How logistics operations in the area can be optimized for greater efficiency
  • How the region can go ahead in the move to electric and autonomous vehicles
