ACLA 2013 Conference

E-commerce is creating a logistics revolution as existing supply chains are undergoing fundamental change

SINGAPORE, May 30, 2013 - At the forthcoming Air Cargo & Logistics Asia (ACLA) Conference 2013 at the Marina Bay Sands Convention & Exhibition Centre, Singapore on October 16 - October 18, delegates will hear how Asia’s spectacular e-Commerce growth is affecting different supply chains, including the largely under-reported but vital role of air transport in todays B2C on-line transactions and deliveries.
Panelists, comprising senior executives of e-Commerce giants, postal organisations, logistics providers and integrators, will discuss subjects ranging from the changing portfolio of postal providers and security of on-line shipments, to the downward trend in express charges and the perceived need for “next day” deliveries.

Other sessions covering air cargo and logistics will debate the continuing shift from air to sea, emerging freighter networks in China, the growing call from shippers for greater transparency, the near-shoring impact on air freight volumes and the question if there is still a need for jumbo freighters.

To hear more about the logistics and e-Commerce revolution in Asia, book your place on-line at the ACLA 2013 Conference. For details and on-line bookings please go to the web site:

The Early Bird rate - until August 15 - for a delegate pass is US$850/= which, apart from the Conference, includes the exclusive Welcome Cocktail Reception and Buffet Dinner on October 16, plus all Coffee Breaks and Buffet Lunches during the Conference.
