The Chartered Institute of Transport in North America (CITNA) will be holding a one-day conference on the theme of "E-business and Transportation" that will take place in Montreal at the Inter-Continental Hotel on November 12, 2001.

Margaret Bloodworth, Deputy Minister, Transport Canada will be the guest speaker at the dinner following the conference.

"The objective of the conference is to bring together transportation professionals to review and learn about the latest developments in business-to-business ("B2B") electronic commerce within the transportation industry for each mode of transport. Major transportation carriers will present and discuss how e-business has made their organizations work more effectively and efficiently," said CITNA’s CEO Hazem Ghonima, FCIT.

Two prime examples to be presented at the conference are "Aeroxchange" created by 13 airlines (including Air Canada) and "" created recently by five of North America’s largest railroads including Canadian National and Canadian Pacific.

In addition to hearing from the actual developments and experiences of transportation carriers, speakers from the academic and e-commerce business world will present how e-commerce has impacted and re-shaped transportation and what developments are still in store in the future.
