This April 24, Truck News’ sister publications Motortruck and Canadian Transportation and Logistics are the media sponsors for the Transportation Outlook Conference in Ottawa.

The event, organized by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport North America, brings key decision makers from all modes and government officials together to discuss pressing regulatory and operational issues. Editorial director Lou Smyrlis will also be speaking at the event.

The very next day, Smyrlis will be embarking on a cross-country speaking tour to explore the issue of fuel price volatility and the impact on carriers and shippers.

Smyrlis will be interviewing fuel industry experts and examining the different alternatives available to carriers to manage fuel price volatility.

The event is co-sponsored by Transportation Media Research and Markel Insurance. The cities currently on the schedule include Montreal, Halifax, Guelph, Mississauga, Calgary and Edmonton.

There are also several private dates for Markel policy holders.

Then, in early May, Smyrlis will be speaking at the annual research forum of Supply Chain and Logistics Canada on pay and benefit trends in the transportation and logistics industries.

March was a good month for assistant editor Adam Ledlow, who joined our group upon completing Humber College’s journalism program about a year ago.

Not only did his writing garner two awards from the Truck Writers of North America but he found that his previous stint as editor-in-chief of the college’s newspaper was particularly fruitful.

The Humber EtCetera took home first place in the General Excellence category in the Ontario Community Newspapers Association’s Better Newspaper Awards. And Ledlow’s multi-talented ability was in evidence when he also won an award for his editorial illustrations from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association.
