FT Digital Future of the Car Week: President Thorsten Muschal gives insights on resilience after the crisis
In the context of a critical moment for the automotive industry, the Financial Times organised a series of online sessions with influential figures in the sector from the 7th to the 9th of July.
On the 8th of July, President Thorsten Muschal participated in the session Supply chain shake-up: More disruption is on its way. How should carmakers prepare? The second day of the online event looked into resilience after the crisis. Moderated by Peter Campbell, the interactive panel gathered high representatives from all the supply chain who discussed strategies and new transformation challenges that the industry is facing.
"In the situation we’re in, communication between all players is even more key. The supply industry doesn't follow the structure: one supplier-one customer. It operates with multi-customers schemes and it is deeply intertwined and connected" Thorsten Muschal now live in #FTCar pic.twitter.com/i4TF2881tX— CLEPA (@CLEPA_eu) July 8, 2020
The panel briefed the audience on the impact that the crisis has had on their companies. However, it was agreed that the period has led to a positive rethinking of the value of teleworking, non-contact purchases or mobility preferences. Additionally, software is becoming the core of many companies in an accelerated pace.
