The Future of Logistics and Transport in Auckland – and the Implications for New Zealand.
The objective of this CILT Forum was to learn about ‘New Knowledge’, ‘New Solutions’, ‘New Policies’, ‘New Enablers’, and ‘New Motivation’, next to ‘New Evidence’! The speakers were encouraged to share tangible case studies to illustrate the current situation and raise options towards optimisation.
The Forum, organised by Dr Jean-Paul Thull and chaired by Dr Chris Kissling, emeritus professor at Lincoln University, ran from 12.30 to 4.30 pm and was split into two sessions of five speakers each, including two separate coffee breaks to encourage networking.
A Q+A debate, moderated by Daniel Silva, director of DSL and former president of the Customs Brokers Association and the Importers Institute, followed the second coffee break, next to Diane Edwards, CILT NZ President, summarising the outcome of the Forum.
Some highlights of the Forum are shown below.
