Transportation – the network of road, rail, air and marine infrastructure, the growing fleets of vehicles in all modes, and the cadre of professionals who manage and operate transportation facilities – is the life blood of a healthy economy and a thriving society. Despite the centrality of transportation to the economic and social well-being of any society, the transportation needs arising out of Arctic warming have not received a fraction of the attention paid to the scientific aspects of climate change.
If you are among the army of transportation policy makers, managers, public and private sector service providers, and applied researchers, for whom the Arctic is a growing challenge, then you will want to book early to come to this conference.
Jointly mounted by the Transport Institute and the Department of Supply Chain Management in the Asper School of Business at the University of Manitoba, this conference will bring together practitioners and researchers from industry, the non-profit sector, government (including the military) and academics who are experts in Arctic transportation and supply chain management, and who are involved in the development of both operational and regulatory policy to share knowledge about the practical and theoretical aspects of Arctic transportation.
