About the conference

TAL (Trends in Automotive Logistics) is a conference that brings together inspiring speakers from business and academia so they can share their approaches and opinions towards the latest trends in logistics, manufacturing and integration and the use of new digitalisation technologies, methods and tools. We are preparing the 24th year of the conference in 2025.

#TAL2024: Driving the Digital Fast Lane

The automotive sector gets more dynamic by the day. The recent crises and upheavals have spurred vigorous changes and innovations in the entire supply chain. New technologies, automation and artificial intelligence are playing a fundamental role. The digital transformation is like a road that enterprises need to take in order to adapt to changing conditions and gain a competitive advantage.

What do the “drivers” – logisticians and IT experts – need so they can enter the fast lane of the digitalisation highway? What technologies, platforms and abilities are required for their teams to make it safely to the finish?

Experts from practice and academia came to discuss this at TAL 2024. As every year, you could come to see inspiring lectures and case studies from practice or meet personally with prominent experts in the field.
