Multimodal Summit

Multimodal SummitCargo Logistics Canada’s VIP Shippers are responsible for complex supply chains that run the gamut, from origin to destination and all points in between. Many of our shipper attendees either utilize multiple modes of freight transport, or use certain modes with more frequency.

A new feature for Cargo Logistics Canada is the robust Multimodal Summit that offers more depth and breadth of conference content to the air, ocean, and surface transport sectors. Whether you book ocean shipping, truckloads, intermodal rail, or airfreight, CLC 2018, the only Multimodal Expo in North America, will seek to help better connect these crucial logistical dots for the wide range of supply chain professionals who attend the show.

W01 – LLOYDS LIST PRESENTS – GLOBAL SHIPPING UPDATE & FORECAST: GREEN SHOOTS OF RECOVERY?

Global economic growth has spurred trade as container-shipping lines have collectively seen their financial fortunes improve on the heels of a downturn that resulted in a smaller playing field of competitors. Lloyds List will lead an engaging discussion on what lies ahead for ocean carriers as they balance business growth with significant tonnage entering the market in 2018, an orderbook that anticipates more business is coming, and what Canadian/North American supply chains should be preparing for.

W12 – MULTIMODAL TECH NEXT –– THE AUTONOMOUS SUPPLY CHAIN – LAND, SEA & AIR

The transportation sector has been transformed over the past decade as technological solutions seek to address complex issues. Steadily, although with little obvious interaction, the prospect of autonomous trucking, autonomous shipping, and autonomous aviation moves closer. Has this brought the autonomous supply chain any nearer? What lessons can each sector teach for mutual benefit? Would the concept behind driverless truck platoons work elsewhere? Where are the areas of commonality, of divergence, and of overlap? Join experts from Lloyd’s List, Aviation Week, Fleet Owner, and Bulk Transporter as they explore the practical, safety, and ethical dimensions of the autonomous supply chain, and ask whether it’s Pie in the Sky or the Road of Revolution.

T01 – THE SUPPLY CHAIN ECOSYSTEM: WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER

Each and very logistical/transport node attached to any given supply chain has an impact that can be felt both upstream and downstream. The focus of this discussion is the growing awareness that there is a supply chain ecosystem that forms the fabric surrounding each critical component, and how bringing these various entities together, however seemingly disparate some of them may seem, is becoming a needed best practice.
