IRU, in cooperation with ATA, CANACAR and CTA, will be hosting a web-based North American Transportation forum.
When: February 23, 2022
Time: 10am–11am (Ciudad de México/CST); 11am–12pm (Ottawa/Washington/EST)
The North American Transportation Forum (NATF) brings together International Road Transport Union (IRU) members including the Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA), American Trucking Associations (ATA), Mexico’s National Chamber of Freight Transportation (CANACAR), supply chain leaders, and the wider industry and governments to improve cross border transportation and logistics in the region.
After more than two decades of growth under NAFTA, the new USMCA/CUSMA entered into force on July 1, 2020 with updated and modernized trade rules and mechanisms.
With 70 percent of North American trade, by value, transported by truck, international road transport has never been more important.
But key cross-border regional challenges remain. The transportation industry and government need to work together to solve them.
- Which USMCA/CUSMA chapters and measures have been implemented so far and which policies are now in the works?
- What are the most important cross-border priorities for carriers and logistics companies?
- What future government initiatives are under consideration?
Guest speakers for the inaugural event will include:
- Mark Seymour, Chief Executive Officer, Kriska Transportation Group, Canada
- Derek Leathers, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Werner Enterprises, United States
- Luz Maria de la Mora, Undersecretary for Trade, Ministry of Economy, Mexico
- Daniel Watson, Assistant US Trade Representative, Western Hemisphere, United States
- Ramon Medrano Ibarra, President, CANACAR, Mexico
This event will be held in English and Spanish. Registration info for the free event can be found here.
