According to Mr Ahlden the industry is “embarking on a change” with new technology coming from digitalisation and new-age propulsions systems like electric and hydrogen.

Mercedes-Benz was preparing - and also helping partners prepare themselves - to embrace these new technologies. “And here in Dubai we can start practicing and testing those technologies,” added Mr Ahlden.

On collaboration, Mr Ahlden said it was a key strategy that has proven itself during pandemic when different players in the supply chain came together to successfully meet new challenges.

Mr Ahlden concluded by saying that today, no single organisation can do it alone and the traditional forms of suppliers and customers will have to evolve into partnerships through which the industry can collectively develop solutions to meet future challenges and goals.
