Tradelink participated in the 2019 Asian Logistics and Maritime Conference
Tradelink, a leading service provider of Government Electronic Trading Services for Hong Kong business community, participated in the 9th Asian Logistics and Maritime Conference held at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre from 19 to 20th November.
ALMC is an annual signature event for the logistics and shipping industry, jointly organized by the Hong Kong Government and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council. Themed "Connect and Innovate: Navigating Challenging Times", this year's conference gathered over 60 expert speakers to explore three key areas - Asian connectivity, e-commerce customer experience and logistics technologies. Together with an exhibition housing nearly 100 service providers alongside the conference, the two-day event attracted more than 1,500 visitors from Asia and beyond.
VSHIP, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tradelink, took part in the exhibition for the second year. Established as a community logistics platform which aims to streamline the supply chain process and facilitate the interaction among shippers and logistics service providers, VSHIP introduced its latest developments including its extended bid and offer service covering both sea and air freight shipments.
Tradelink was also invited to speak at the Supply-chain Management & Logistics Forum. Calson Cheung, General Manager, Supply Chain Solutions of Tradelink, explained the concept and benefits of sharing economy and demonstrated, with the example of VSHIP, how to leverage multilateral platform to maximize network effects for the supply chain. Joined by fellow industry experts, Calson also participated in a panel discussion commenting on the technology adoption in the logistics and shipping industry.
As one of the largest events of its kind in Asia, ALMC gathered leading shippers and logistics service providers not just from Asia but all over the world. We were delighted to have the opportunity to meet our fellow industry players and to explore new partnerships and business opportunities.
