The chip shortage: how does it impact your vehicle sourcing?

The semiconductor chip shortage has a major impact on global fleet procurement and vehicle sourcing. That’s why we’re dedicating the upcoming edition of the Global Fleet Managers Club to this topic. Join us online on 5 October, from 4:00 to 5:30pm CET.

More than 150 industries worldwide depend on semiconductors and are heavily affected by the current shortage. Prominent among them are mobility in general, and automotive in particular. We’re facing ever longer delivery times – if we’re lucky. Because some vehicles and other mobility assets are not being manufactured at all. For corporate fleets, this crisis comes on top of the one caused by Covid-19. It adds complexity and uncertainty to fleet procurement and sourcing strategies already straining to respect corporate policies and CSR targets.

As the semiconductor chip shortage is far from over, we should discuss how to adapt to this additional factor of complexity and uncertainty in our fleet procurement and formulate best practices on how to deal with it.  

On Tuesday 5 October, you will get that opportunity at the next session of the Global Fleet Managers Club. This is where global and international corporate fleet managers will learn from Arthur D. Little industry experts Wolf-Dieter Hoppe and Dr. Klaus Schmitz and where you can share experiences in dealing with the chip shortage when sourcing vehicles.

The Global Fleet Managers Club is the club for global and international fleet and mobility managers to share their best practices and to network. The Club counts more than 140 members. Together, the fleets they manage total more than one million vehicles.
