Join us in Vancouver this September!

ICHCA and NMSA are delighted to present
NEW TECH, NEW WORLD WEEK from 18-21 September 2018 in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Hosted by The British Columbia Maritime Employers Association
Multiple industry, regulatory and technology forces are converging to challenge and change the world of cargo handling as we know it. Bigger ships and shipping industry consolidation; automation, digitalisation and electrification; and increased safety and environmental legislation all have significant impact for HSSE, risk, compliance, skills and training, cargo care and operations professionals at sea, at the ship-shore interface, in ports and terminals and along landside transport chains.

ICHCA International, the professional membership body and NGO for the global cargo handling sector, is delighted to join with NMSA, the US National Maritime Safety Association, supported by host BCMEA, the British Columbia Maritime Employers Association, to stage a series of meetings and networking under the headline theme “New Tech, New World”.

Taking place in Vancouver, Canada, from 19-21 September, the 3-day event will bring together national, regional and international cargo professionals to explore latest industry, regulatory and technology trends and share views and experiences on the impact for safety, security, sustainability, skills development and day-to-day practical operations.
