Join us on Wednesday, 24 March 2021 at 12 pm ET / 10 am MT/ 11 am CT / 9 am PT for “Achieving Traceability and Transparency in International Supply Chains: The Covid-19 Acceleration Effect” moderated by Colin Laughlan, member, Pacific Chapter, CILTNA.

Interoperability in international data systems for cargo shipping and logistics has accelerated greatly to meet the challenges of a global pandemic. Three of the world’s leading architects of the rapidly emerging Global Information Infrastructure for trade and transport explain how the latest developments in open standards are advancing the integration of data systems across international supply chains. Looking at new technologies ranging from Smart Container sensors that report continuously on the condition of containerized goods in transit; to Data Pipelines that integrate multiple sources of data to enable collaboration on cloud computing and to provide access to both commercial and regulatory parties on a need-know-basis; to the coming Application Programming Interfaces that will allow developers to create myriad new applications for mobile devices, this Webinar will be eye-opening for transport and logistics practitioners who want to know what is coming down the pike in their industry.

4 March 2021 - Asian Supply Chain Issues during the Pandemic with Gabriel Lagunes, CN representative in China

On Thursday, 4 March 2021, 4:30 pm ET/2:30 pm MT/3:30 pm CT/1:30 pm PT we hosted – “Asian Supply Chain Issues during the Pandemic” Gabriel Lagunes, CN representative in China. Moderated by Bob Armstrong, President of CILTNA and ATLAS Trade & Logistics Inc.

In this webinar the audience gained a unique perspective of the world-wide container shipping crisis from Gabriel Lagunes, CN’s representative in China based in Shanghai. He explained the big picture COVID-19 impacts through a manufacturing and landside lens. Although supply chain disruptions have been reported throughout the pandemic, Gabriel’s commented as a participant on the ground brought a reality lens to the situation.

In a discussion with the moderator, Bob Armstrong, Gabriel offered more context concerning specific disturbances that are causing confusion, delays and inefficiencies. He offered his observations and anecdotes that demonstrated the fast and perhaps lasting impacts of COVID-19-related trade disruptions.

10 February 2021 - CN and McCarthy Lawyers - "Carrier’s Limitation of Liability – When One is the New Zero. When does a carrier’s limitation clause in fact result in full value liability?"

On Wednesday, 10 February 2021 at 12 ET/10 MT/11 AM CT/9 AM PT  we hosted, Carrier’s Limitation of Liability – When One is the New Zero. When does a carrier’s limitation clause in fact result in full value liability?

This webinar reviewed recent case law and considered how to draft enforceable clauses that reflect the parties intention to limit carrier liability. Speakers discussed two recent cases in which the courts were asked to clarify the extent to which railways may limit their liability for loss of or damage to freight. In one case, the Quebec Court of Appeal ruled that a limitation of liability near zero would be equivalent to an “exclusion” of liability and thus invalid, while another case currently before the Supreme Court of Canada deals with privity of contract in respect of confidential contracts between railways and shippers. Three rail transportation law experts discussed these cases and their broader implications for rail cargo claims. This webinar was presented by:

David F. Blair, Counsel, McCarthy Tétrault LLP
Brian Lipson, Associate, McCarthy Tétrault LLP
Éric Harvey, Senior Counsel, Regulatory, CN (Webinar Moderator)
