This event centered on the history, and future, of freight, flight and shipping in Alaska and it’s relationship to Asia and the whole Pacific region. What has it taken to get us this far? What can Anchorage, and Alaska, do to expand our influence in the region. The event did feature a video presented by UPS and a slideshow, which are both featured on this web post.
