TORONTO, Ont. — CITT announced today that Benat Mariyanayagam, senior manager of Logistics Operations at DB Schenker of Canada – the official logistics supplier for the Toronto 2015 Pan Am & Parapan Am Games and also the provider of logistics services for the Olympic Games – is presenting a detailed case study of the logistics behind the games at the upcoming Canada Logistics Conference 2015.
Toronto’s recently concluded Pan Am Games were a huge success in terms of attendance and athletics. They were also an example of a seamlessly executed logistics operation – the kind that works behind the scenes so smoothly that most people don’t even know it’s there. However, logistics pros have been clamoring for an inside look at how the Toronto games came together so successfully. Luckily, they’ll get that chance at Canada’s annual thought leadership conference for every supply chain logistics professional, CITT said in a release.
During the Pan Am Games, DB Schenker moved over 1 million items to the 60+ venues in the Greater Toronto Area, through a planning process that began over 2 years ago. Between custom brokerage, inventory management, forwarding items for re-use for other organizations, and more, the logistics for the Games was a huge task that any logistics professional is sure to find fascinating and informative.
Canada Logistics Conference 2015 will be held in Niagara Falls, Ontario from October 25-27. “Moving the Pan Am Games” joins 7 other highly-anticipated learning sessions hand-picked for industry relevance to help delegates build more efficient, reliable, profitable supply chains, plus a rare guided tour of the Welland Canal.
