Attend the North American Cargo Securement Harmonization Public Forum on Nov. 25 in Montreal

Sticky: No
October 22, 2014

The North American Cargo Securement Harmonization Public Forum will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 25, 2014, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

This public forum continues efforts begun by the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCMTA) in 1993 when it approved funding and management for research designed to update and improve cargo securement standards. CCMTA’s initial research and standards were expanded with support from the United States with the goal of harmonizing a North American standard.

Today, on an ongoing basis, Canadian and U.S. regulators and other constituents continue this forum to identify and, where appropriate, address cargo securement-related issues for potential implementation in an internationally harmonized standard. The forum is open to the industry, enforcement and all interested parties.

The North American Cargo Securement Harmonization Public Forum will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 25, 2014, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (EST) at the Hotel Omni Mont Royal, 1050 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
