2008 New England Supply Chain Conference and Exhibit - Marie-Louise Hannan Presentation

Innovation, Culture, and Delivery: Three Reasons to Select Canada as Your Partner for Global Sourcing
Marie-Louise Hannan

A company's supply chain must be prepared to rebound from the economic challenges of today and tomorrow. It must be resilient. The changing logistics landscape, including the impact of increased fuel costs and the need for investment in infrastructure is causing many companies to question past patterns of behavior and assess whether alternative shipping routes and carriers are available to fulfill their needs.

This presentation will offer information on Canada as a player in global supply chains and value chains, providing details about key industry clusters and describing how you can identify sources of supply from your northern neighbor. We will discuss North American highway, marine and rail systems and how your planning can capitalize on new transportation systems. The Canadian government and its network of international business development professionals are available to connect you with innovative and reliable suppliers in Canada. We will encourage you to "Look North" for solutions.
