Canadian Supply Chains by Sea, Air, Rail or Road

-Cargo Logistics Canada Expo & Conference brings supply chain logistics under one roof-

VANCOUVER, Jan. 21, 2013 /CNW/ - Informa Canada is pleased to announce the inaugural Cargo Logistics Canada Expo & Conference (CLC) which will take place January 29 - 30, 2014 at the Vancouver Convention Centre West.  CLC is a B2B platform to connect stakeholders in Canadian supply chains, fostering synergies between freight owners and movers.   CLC is about opening new doors for sea, air, rail and road cargo collaboration on a regional, continental and international scale.

Partnerships

Partnered with CLC are a diverse group of associations representing the entire supply chain spectrum.  As a result, CLC will gather the broadest group of stakeholders in sea, air, rail and road freight ever assembled in Canada.  The Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association (CIFFA) is one of more than a dozen prestigious Supporting Associations:

"CIFFA is excited to be a Supporting Association of the inaugural Cargo Logistics Canada Expo & Conference.  It is through opportunities like CLC, where all supply chain stakeholders gather to support and promote the industry, that CIFFA is able to achieve its mission.  We anticipate that CLC will provide a national platform for the entire freight sector to come together in an atmosphere of learning and networking" states Ruth Snowden, Executive Director, CIFFA.

Canada's Platform for New Innovations

Leading suppliers from the freight, logistics, materials handling and supply chain sectors will exhibit and showcase the latest innovations, making CLC the platform for new product launches in Canada. The centerpiece of the event will be a large and dynamic 50,000 sq. ft. exposition floor, featuring 150+ exhibits.  Thousands of visitors from domestic and international markets will attend the event for networking and discovery.

Educating the Industry

As part of this multi-layer approach, CLC will offer a top-tier professional development program relevant to the entire Canadian freight transportation industry.  Featuring 40+ seminars and up to 100 speakers, the schedule will allow professionals to build their own program without being tied to a costly one-size-fits-all conference pass.  This cost-effective format will make CLC accessible to the market, setting a new trend in logistics conferences.

CLC is Canada's Logistics Hub

"Logistics is about finding efficiencies," states David Tyldesley, CLC Director.  "Perhaps no other industry is more focused on this fundamental concept."   Tyldesley notes, "To our knowledge, stakeholders in the air, sea, rail and road freight sectors have never been involved in one, cost-effective, consolidated event.  Our approach emphasizes efficient collaboration and this has been extremely well-received."
