Priority Freight announces gold sponsorship of Automotive Logistics Central & Eastern European Summit
Priority Freight, a leading time-critical logistics specialist supporting the global automotive industry, will be sponsoring the inaugural Automotive Logistics Central and Eastern Europe summit next month.
The event, hosted in Budapest on 13-14th November 2018, is set to attract some of the most senior members of the automotive logistics world. At the very centre of these discussions will be the best ways for the Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) sector to continue to prosper and maintain its growth as a major player in the automotive market.
Other hot topics up for discussion include:
- The economic trends driving automotive production and logistics in the CEE region
- What logistics and supply chain networks can do to improve connectivity
- The role of IT and digitalisation in keeping CEE manufacturers competitive
- How logistics operations in the area can be optimised for greater efficiency
- How the region can get ahead in the move to electric and autonomous vehicles
As the region continues to develop high-quality, low-cost production operations, car manufacturers are increasingly looking to Eastern, rather than Western Europe, for the most appropriate locations to support their drive towards electric and connected vehicles, greater supply chain digitalisation and efficiency.
Priority Freight has recently identified an opportunity in the CEE region with the opening of its latest office in Bratislava. The exciting new addition to the Priority Freight network will increase local capability and capacity whilst allowing further enhancement of their ability to meet the demands of new and existing clients and suppliers operating across Central Europe.
Stuart Stobie, Group Sales and Marketing Director at Priority Freight said, “The Automotive Logistics CEE summit is further proof that the Central and Eastern Europe market is currently in a strong place and has huge potential for further growth. Our gold sponsorship of the summit and the opening of our Bratislava office demonstrates the commitment that we, at Priority Freight, have to the European market.
“We’re looking forward to speaking to the industry leaders and innovators about the future of the automotive industry in Central and Eastern Europe and how we can work together to ensure its continued success.”
Speakers at the event include Jaguar Land Rover and Magna Steyr, as well as the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, showcasing the variety of organisations interested in the development of CEE. Stuart Stobie continues, “These events are about gaining new insights and this automotive conference in particular will reveal what the industry needs to do to evolve and develop within Central and Eastern Europe. We’re looking forward to joining the discussion and defining where the CEE automotive sector is heading.”
