The round table moderated by Jesús Martínez Castellanos, CEO of LATAM MAPFRE, was attended by important representatives of business groups in Latin America, such as Aurelio Macías Meza, Corporate Risk Manager of Industrial Saltillo Group, Alejandro Reyes, Corporate Controller of SIGDO KOPPERS, and Luis Fernando Longo Upegui, Corporate Director of Risks and Insurance at CARVAJAL, on June 24 in Palma de Mallorca.
Through their reflections, we were able to learn first-hand how the supply crisis is impacting their companies, and what levers they are taking to solve the problems they are facing.
Alejandro Reyes (SIGDO KOPPERS) highlighted that increased transport costs have impacted imports and exports, which occupy a very relevant place in Latin American countries such as Chile.
Aurelio Macías Meza (Industrial Saltillo Group) explained the importance of the automotive sector having a very well-oiled supply chain process in order to avoid the stoppage or slowdown of a plant’s operations, as well as agility in decision-making.
Finally, Luis Fernando Longo Upegui (CARVAJAL Group) spoke to us about the increased costs that have been generated on a logistics level as a result of the blockade of ports, forcing a change in strategies for the mobilization of raw materials, and the actions they are taking to avoid transferring all those costs to the end product that is delivered to the consumer.
