46 delegates from the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), representing 25 countries, joined over 1500 local delegates for the event held between the 30th October and 1st November 2016. The conference was organised by the China Communications and Transport Association (CCTA / CILT China) in partnership with CILT International who were delighted to provide four excellent key-note speakers. Organised under the theme of Connectivity, Win – Win and Sharing, the conference was the perfect opportunity to explore the One Belt One Road Initiative (OBOR), the exciting reawakening of the Silk Road at the heart of China’s main logistics focus. Full story
