Canadian Supply Chain Task Force Chairs Selected

During Canada’s National Supply Chain Summit in January, Minister of Transport Omar Alghabra announced that a National Supply Chain Task Force would be created “to consult broadly with industry, associations and experts to examine the key pressures and make recommendations regarding short and long-term actions to strengthen the efficiency, fluidity and resiliency of transportation infrastructure and reliability of Canada’s supply chain.” On March 28, co-chairs were named: Jean Gattuso and Louise Yako.

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority has reported that cargo moving through the Port of Vancouver increased 1% in 2020 to 145.5 million metric tonnes (MMT) vs. 2019.
