TRADE & TRANSPORTATION SUMMIT
The Transportation and Trade (TNT) Summit, a new agri-export industry event spearheaded by the Canadian Special Crops Association (CSCA), is expected to bring together international buyers and key players in Canada’s agriculture supply chain this June. The TNT Summit is taking place June 24 in Calgary, Alberta in conjunction with the CSCA’s 2013 Pulse and Special Crops Convention.
The event will connect market outlooks for Canadian wheat, durum, barley, oats, pulses, soy and special crops with outlooks for the supply chain responsible for delivering product to the world. The agenda includes presentations from industry analysts and transportation experts discussing the evolution of Canada’s marketing and distribution channels.
The summit will be of particular interest to buyers from around the world as well as producers, processors, marketers, and service providers.
