The forthcoming Asian Logistics, Maritime and Aviation Conference (ALMAC) is the important thought leadership event of its kind in Asia, which brings together industry professionals from all sectors along the supply chain and shippers, to exchange latest market intelligence and explore business opportunities around the world. ALMAC 2022 takes place on 22-23 November online and at Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Hong Kong has long been the preferred logistics hub in the region thanks to its strategic location, world-class infrastructure and multi-modal transportation links. In 2021, Hong Kong International Airport handled 5 million tonnes of airfreight, still ranking as one of the world’s busiest air-cargo centres. Also, the city remains in the world’s top-10 container ports with an annual throughput of about 18 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) of containers. In more than 30 months, the COVID pandemic has presented significant challenges to the global supply chains. Looking ahead, as the journey to recovery begins, the ALMAC promotes a platform for exchanging views among global industry leaders.
Running under the theme “The Future of the Sustainable Supply Chain: Connectivity ∙ Collaboration ∙ Innovation”, the ALMAC will gather supply chain stakeholders, including shippers, to examine the importance of building connectivity, fostering collaboration, and driving innovation in creating a sustainable future for the industry and global trade development. It will cover trending topics such as opportunities brought by the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), supply chain transformation, intermodal connectivity, smart supply chain, logistics automation and sustainability.
