Transportation and Logistics Trends and Policies: Successes and Failures

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 23, 2009) - Leaders from the private sector, government, and academia will converge on TORONTO, to reflect on and debate transportation and logistics trends at the Canadian Transportation Research Forum (CTRF), 45th Annual Conference in Toronto, Ontario, May 30th to June 2nd, 2010, at the Courtyard by Marriott, located in the heart of downtown Toronto.

According to CTRF President, Doug Johnson, "The transportation and logistics landscape has changed dramatically in recent times. New patterns of global trade have emerged. Deregulation has become de rigueur, following years of close contact between government and transport service delivery. For their part, individuals and households anticipate appreciating the benefits of an increasing degree of personal and private mobility. Transport infrastructures have become increasingly strained by rising demand raising environmental and productivity concerns, particularly within some Canadian cities and on certain key trade corridors, and at key border crossings, ports and airports." This year's CTRF meeting will focus on exploring and debating current transport and logistics trends and policy. Beyond the main conference theme, thought provoking sessions have been organized covering several other areas including: safety, logistics and goods movement, urban transportation, human resource issues, and the environment.
