Supply Chain Forward is core theme for Cargo Logistics Canada

Multimodal Summit will be one of the new CLC18 features

The 5th Cargo Logistics Canada Expo + Conference returns to the Vancouver Convention Centre, Feb. 6-8, 2018, and will operate under its first-ever theme, and keystone of the show: Supply Chain Forward.

“We appreciate that our Priority Shippers are responsible for complex logistical networks in a time of ever-evolving best practices as the future is coming at us with a wide variety of ideas and solutions that will be featured, discussed at the show” said Peter Hurme, Programming Director for Cargo Logistics Canada.

“Therefore CLC18, the only Multimodal Expo in North America, is looking innovatively forward here in Silicon Valley North to help better connect these crucial dots for the range of supply chain professionals who attend our conference and exhibition,” said Hurme.

Another new feature for the 2018 show will be the robust Multimodal Summit that will offer more depth and breadth to the air, ocean, surface logistics components.

Many of CLC’s shipper attendees either book multiple modes of freight transport, or use certain modes with more frequency.

Other popular returning conference features will include:

  • Distribution Logistics Summit: The distribution, warehousing, and materials handling component to CLC will take a big leap forward in 2018 with its own dedicated Main Stage on the showfloor, and a larger exhibition footprint dedicated to Canada’s only show that is focused on this key function of the supply chain.
  • Shippers Summit: The customer is king, and we will be pleased to feature content aimed at, with participation from, those who book, and control the movement, storage, and distribution of freight – representing retail, consumer goods, manufacturing, food, agriculture, raw materials, pharma, and more. The CLC Priority Shipper Pass program that brought over 300 cargo owners to CLC17, will return with more shippers, and even more benefits for them in 2018.
  • Commodities & Cold Chain Summit: Bulk, breakbulk, cold chain commodities and food is once again the focus of this special summit.
