MONCTON, N.B. — The Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association (APTA) will be hosting a transportation summit Oct. 14-15, which is shaping up to be an informative event.
The conference, held at the Casino New Brunswick in Moncton, will feature speakers on transportation, trade and logistics topics.
It will feature a panel discussion on the future of trucking with updates on CSA 2010 and other timely subjects.
“This event will be an important forum for discussion and action on today’s current events in the transportation industry,” said APTA executive director Jean Marc Picard. “It will not only be educational but very informative for all participants.”
Providing the entertainment will be comedian Gerry Dee and of course, no eastern shindig is complete without a traditional lobster dinner.
Other topics to be covered include the economy, electronic on-board recorders and sleep apnea. The summit concludes with a speech by Peter Mansbridge, host of CBC National News.
“We are looking forward to a very successful transportation summit by showing attendees and speakers our Maritime hospitality here in Moncton, the ‘Hub of the Maritimes’,” said Picard.
