Canada doesn’t actually have a Silk Road initiative like China’s massive $1 trillion One Belt One Road (OBOR) plan that is resurrecting the historic Silk Road concept in full force, but looking through that lens, CLC19 kicks off the “Where is Canada’s Silk Road? theme with a high level economic analysis of trade and policy by two speakers who will place both Canada, and North America into this context.

Chances are high that your supply chain is impacted by the ocean shipping trades in one way or another. Gain keen insight into what is coming in 2019 and beyond with the Global Liner Outlook presented by CLC’s sister media company/partner Lloyds List, and expert analysis from Lloyds’ editorial staff and other shipping industry experts. Questions and discussions to be posed will include: IMO2020: who is going to pay? Will carriers be able to pass on increased cost of fuel to shippers? With high rates on the trans-Pacific this past peak season, carriers appear to have the upper hand, but for how long? Wither the fluid state of the tariff trade war and the forecast of a slowdown in early 2019, possibly giving shippers more power in negotiations in the lead up to the contracting season? Does liner consolidation have some room to run yet even though the candidate list is getting smaller? Meanwhile, how much longer might overcapacity remain a problem for carriers, despite disciplined tonnage withdrawal over the peak season? You won’t want to miss this informative panel on the current, and future state of ocean shipping.

Calgary is home to many transportation and logistics carriers and facilities that help ensure the quick and efficient flow of goods. Major railways, interprovincial and cross-border highways and a large international airport distribute products to and from businesses in and around Calgary and all over the world. In recent years, Calgary has evolved into one of Western Canada’s leading multimodal goods movement hubs. Today, jobs in transportation, logistics and warehousing make up 10 percent of the Calgary region’s jobs and directly or indirectly impact a much larger portion of the region’s gross domestic product. The recent additions of a 600,000-square foot Amazon Fulfillment Centre and Canadian Tire’s plans to create a distribution campus are evidence of the growing footprint of warehousing and logistics in the Calgary region. To ensure that these and other economic sectors can continue to grow and to maintain the wellbeing of Calgary’s residents. Join us for a discussion on how the elements of transportation planning, prioritization of infrastructure investment, economic development, municipal development projects and approvals coordination have come together to help meet Calgary’s aspirations to be Western Canada’s key multimodal distribution hub.
