Mercedes-Benz, Unipart and FedEx discuss aftermarket logistics future

Join Juan Manuel Santiago Mendez of Mercedes-Benz, Richard Hankinson of Unipart Logistics and John Willems of FedEx, on 19 May at 13.00 BST.

With a rise of eCommerce giants such as Amazon, with Prime, Click and Collect and even delivery within a few hours of ordering, are we, as consumers, and as vehicle brands, being blinded by a trend for instant satisfaction?

There is a general trend across all industries, not just automotive aftermarket, toward service lead by consumer demand for convenience. Are overnight, and even same day, delivery standards making retailers stock less? Does this, ironically, translate into a worse service for customer as retailers cease to hold stock themselves?

The speakers will discuss how to become more cost-efficient while improving supply chain resilience against a backdrop of highly uncertain market conditions over the next year.
