Logistics trade show, set for May 10-11, triples in size

TORONTO – Organizers of the upcoming Supply Chain Canada trade show for the logistics and supply chain industry, say interest in the revamped show is high as the economy continues to improve.

Supply Chain Canada, being organized by the show division of Newcom Business Media, the company that publishes this web site and its affiliated magazines, Today’s Trucking and Highway Star, is scheduled for May 10-11 at the International Centre in Toronto.

The square footage of the show has already tripled from last year’s size, when the show was called Transpo.

A recent report “Global Business Strategy and Innovation: A Canadian Logistics Perspective,” from Industry Canada with help from Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters and Supply Chain & Logistics Association of Canada, may reveal reasons for the increased interest in supply chain issues:

* Investment in distribution centres in Canada has increased by 106% over the past five years.

* Small and medium-sized firms are investing in distribution centres to better respond to customer mandates and to integrate further into global value chains.

* Logistics innovation is at the forefront of global value chain network integration

* Supply chain mandates have a direct impact on innovation across value chains

The complete findings and report can be found here.

Supply Chain Canada will feature an education component featuring five tracks, six keynotes, 20 sessions, and over 35 speakers.

Supply Chain Canada, is produced by Supply Chain & Logistics Association Canada (SCL), Canadian Industrial Transportation Association (CITA), and Newcom Shows. It will feature companies from all sectors of the supply chain showcasing a wide variety of products and services including equipment, and technologies. Industry buyers will have the opportunity to compare and evaluate products and services and be first to see new product introductions in Canada.
