2013 Port Metro Vancouver Logistics Interface: Looking to the Future Conference 

Port Metro Vancouver has many opportunities and challenges on the horizon. On September 18, 2013 the CILTNA Pacific Chapter brought together industry, government, education and labour leaders from the container and bulk/break-bulk sectors to review several important themes with respect to port interface issues: How are we doing? Where are we going? How do we get there?
