Port of Halifax Promotes Supply Chain Advantages at Major Retailers Conference

Monday, February 18, 2013 – Orlando, Fla. – The Port of Halifax is promoting its international supply chain advantages this week at the Retail Industry Leaders Association’s Logistics 2013 Retail Supply Chain Conference in Orlando, Fla. Specifically, the Port is focused on showcasing its benefits for inbound cargo from Asia, which include a quicker overall transit time than any other east coast North American port.

“RILA’s Logistics 2013 conference offers the invaluable opportunity to meet face-to-face with many of the world’s leaders in the retail industry,” said Rob McInnes, Manager of Economic Development for the Halifax Port Authority. “We’ll have the chance to demonstrate how routing via Halifax can keep costs down and improve efficiency to key organizational decision makers specializing in inventory management, distribution, international logistics and transportation.”

The four-day event will consist of panel discussions, keynote addresses, networking sessions, sponsor exhibit and trade show. Logistics 2013 is the largest event of its kind in North America. More than 130 international retailers will be represented at the annual conference, which runs from Feb. 17-20 at Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Orlando.
