Good partnerships are essential in a global economy. In fact, according to the late Robert V. Delaney in his 11th Annual State of Logistics Report, "relationships will carry the logistics industry into the future?" Developing and improving relationships with 3PL providers in a global economy, however, is often not easy for logistics users and providers.

LQ's Executive Exchange is an international forum to exchange ideas between leaders from Canada and the United States. In today's global economy, Canada and the United States remains a partnership that is, in many ways, unique. Trade last year between the United States and Canada almost matched that of the United States and the combined 25 member states of the European Union.

LQ's Executive Exchange builds on a tradition of introducing and demonstrating new leading ideas by senior-level practitioners in North America for supply chain management executives.

This Executive Exchange's keynote speakers will cover topics designed to help improve your company's global performance. Join us, and participate in a program that provides collective thinking and passion to find solutions in a world with emerging economies, unprecedented technologies and new business models.

LQ's Executive Exchange will break new ground in supply chain knowledge sharing - up to half of the session time will be dedicated to a workshop format to discuss the practical applications and implications with the world class speakers and other logistics leaders that attend.


LQ has drawn on the themes developed by David J. Closs, of Michigan State University and LQ's Executive Editor, and John T. Mentzer, University of Tennessee. Key executive perspectives on these themes were featured in LQ's Transportation Forum (Volume 11, Issue 1, 2005). LQ's Executive Exchange has also been developed under the direction of Victor Deyglio, President of the Canadian Professional Logistics Institute. LQ has the honor of being designated, the official magazine of the Canadian Professional Logistics Institute.
