The optimism surrounding the anticipated building of an Arctic gas pipeline has reached a record high, and with continued development of mining projects, the Arctic is North America’s hottest new region of development. Now is the time to plan your strategy to ensure you are part of this momentous period of opportunity. But operating in this northern environment poses unique logistical challenges. The incredible cold, the long months of darkness, the remote location and the sensitive permafrost create extraordinary logistical problems. How do you determine the best strategy for delivering supplies and mobilizing labour? Where do you find the skilled workers and what kind of initiatives do you need to maintain a labour force? How do logistics impact your bottom line?

The Canadian Institute’s inaugural conference on Arctic Logistics has been developed to provide you with the information you need to run a successful project in this unique operating environment. Hear case studies and first hand accounts from industry leaders and get critical information on:
*Transportation logistics: an analysis of the most cost-effective methods for the delivery of supplies and labour to your site
