#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

Since 2017, after various bankruptcies and crises, shipping alliances control the seas by defining shipments and contracts. In the United States, there are basically 3 consolidated alliances: 2M, Ocean Alliance and THE Allience. Today, it is not just about moving cargo from A to B, but about implementing collaboration strategies to manage capacity and routes, leaving the smaller volume for niche carriers that serve smaller regions. But while this determination optimized the profitability of the alliances, some ports lost direct scales because they did not have enough cargo for PostPanamax vessels; in addition, the increase in capacity and congestion in large ports increased the risk of delays and the demand for available chassis, pushing shipping companies to consolidate the service with intermodal and ground carriers. On the other hand, the complexity derived from these alliances has created other figures such as the NVOCC (common carrier that does not own vessels, but consolidates cargo between shipping lines), in addition to the traditional freight forwarder, which as an agent, offers an added value to the client.

Intermodal transport gained speed in the United States throughout 2017, the volume increased by 5.6 percent and the volume of crates 3.9 percent with respect to 2016, according to the Intermodal Association of North America (IANA), which projected a steep rise in movement of cargo within the country. On the other hand, as of December 2017, road carriers have had to comply with a new federal requirement, the installation of electronic recording devices (ERD) in their units, forcing some of them to exit the market. Besides, by monitoring compliance with hours of service (HOS) more accurately, the number of hours that drivers are available to move cargo is reduced. Undoubtedly, these restrictions are pushing more shippers towards intermodality, which has been strengthened by the development of new inland ports: rail terminals that provide factories or distribution centers with easy connections to the main seaports.

In recent years, the challenges on the border between Mexico and the United States have been overcome increasingly better, due to the implementation of business certification programs on both sides, as well as the fact that railways have managed to set up very competitive brokers and do the customs clearance at the origin and destination in Mexico, with goods on deposit, which represents a facilitation for the industrial manufacturing sector. However, there are still challenges for road cargo: imbalance of full-empty spaces, technological implementation, pro-security investment and operational slowness as a consequence of the legal liability the Mexican government imposes to customs agents with respect to the loads of their customers. Nevertheless, the volume of trade between the two countries is significant and convenient, so that challenges such as trade imbalance, regulations and crime should be able to be solved with flexibility on the part of the United States, and commitment on the part of Mexico.
