1:15PM – 2:15PM OEM Supply Chain Leaders – Vision: Digitalization and its impact on Cross-Border Trade & Transportation

Technology and Tradition are at war. The way we’ve always done it doesn’t work in today’s competitive global environment. But how will we get from here to there? Supply Chain Thought Leaders see how implementing digital technologies can move us to a whole new level of business success. The question is will the current market leaders turn their battleships or will new more nimble players infiltrate the marketplace and dominate through technology?

It’s not just doing things right but rather it’s doing the right things. That is what needs to be the focus of cross border activity between the United States and Mexico. We’re dealing with the third largest economy for trade world-wide. If we don’t change, the business will go to where it’s wanted. Developing systems that better secures our border while gaining efficiencies is essential. Technology driven by digitalization is the key to improving on current methods of distribution including last mile delivery.

Panel includes: US CBP (Customs & Border Protection) and OEM Compliance leaders

Panel 3

3:30PM – 4:30PM Integrate Logistics with a Cross-Border Process: Bringing the Pieces (and Data) Together

What is really going on at the border and how can we do more when we’re already running at full speed? Answer: Cast the vision, establish the strategy, organize the plan & process, and then implement efficient tactics using technology that delivers on all levels. Digitalization is offering new opportunities. Collaboration among Supply Chain leaders is the next best activity that will provide value so that the marketplace throughout North America will grow and prosper in a sustainable environment.
