About the Finished Vehicle Logistics North America - Seizing opportunities, driving transformation.
Set against the stunning backdrop of the pacific ocean at Huntington Beach, California, FVL North America will once again bring together vehicle logistics leaders, experts, and key stakeholders from across OEMs, carriers, logistics service providers, and technology and equipment specialists.
OEMs, dealers, and customers must adapt to lower vehicle inventory, more advanced pipeline ordering, and rising expectations for sustainability. Supply chain and logistics disruptions, worsening driver shortages, and rising costs will require greater collaboration and innovation.
