#SCLM2018

Why you should attend

Supply Chain Leaders Meeting (SCLM) has developed successfully for three years and is managed by Inbound Logistics Latam, together with The United States-Mexico Chamber of Commerce, the most recognized business chamber in North America, and partnerships related to logistics sector.
Given the increasing interest among Mexican and American companies in doing business through California’s seaports, this year 2018 we respond to the demand of our followers by opening a new meeting point: LOS ANGELES. For this reason, The California Regional Chapter (United States-Mexico Chamber of Commerce) will be co-host and its members will be participants and assistants.

Goals

• Bring Mexican logistics companies closer to logistics hubs of the State of California in the United States
• Inform American companies about the quality and scope of Mexican companies, as well as their experience in international trade and their availability to do new businesses
• Strengthen business ties between both countries, beyond NAFTA, through the Chamber of Commerce
• Promote the capacity of the logistics corridors of Mexico for transportation of goods by all modes: road, intermodal, maritime and air

Topics to know and discuss

1. Global overview of international trade and transportation of goods derived from electronic commerce
2. Challenges of cargo in California ports for both maritime and intermodal transportation, as well as business opportunities for both countries
3. Road transport needs to interconnect borders and seaports properly. Business opportunities for both countries regarding sector consolidations and specializations
4. California and Mexico for a growing economy: how to overcome the challenges of global nationalist tendencies, on the one hand, and strict international security constraints in the face of increasing threats and risks, on the other

PRESENTATION: The New U.S.-Mexico Economic & Political Landscape

With the complacency manifested by President Trump regarding the President-elect of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, the economic and political panorama between both countries seems positive. What is the perception of the business sector in the United States?

25mins

▼ PANEL I: Outlook for the Supply Chain in North America: The Case of NAFTA & the Automotive Industry

Context:
After the tension that the first five rounds of NAFTAS’s renegotiation left over the last few months, and the significant impact the increase in tariffs for steel and aluminum have had on the automotive sector (whose technical stoppages start to increase), what is the perspective for this scenario?

45 mins

▼ PANEL II: Trending Logistic Routes in North America

Context:
While mergers and alliances among freight rail companies and among freight motor carriers consolidate North American logistics routes, international logistics operators play a very important role in linking their business partners on both sides of the border. What new strategies are expected for the next months?

45 mins

▼ PANEL III: Innovations on Trade Financing and Blockchain Development

Context:
Technology has been shaping a new financial scenario in the world, where concepts such as the “Blockchain” have broken into the business scheme of various productive sectors. Not being exempt the logistics sector, what evolution can we appreciate in this regard?
