The rising role lead logistics needs to play to support the automotive industry’s electrified future

The automotive landscape is changing at a rapid pace. And at the forefront of it all is the drive to shift to low and          zero-emission vehicles. With government regulations spearheading the shift, vehicle production lines will now include hybrid and electric vehicles, manufactured alongside ICE powertrains. Forcing OEM assembly plants to rethink their supply chain strategies.

At the heart of the automotive industry’s electrified future is the need for lithium-ion batteries. This crucial component currently represents 30-40% of an EV vehicle’s value. With global volumes of pure electric vehicles expected to increase by nearly 9 times over the next decade, OEM manufacturers, battery suppliers and lead logistics providers have come together to take the first steps to ensure an agile and resilient supply chain is in place to scale-up battery raw material procurement and production.
