    Innovative Solutions for the Mexican Market: It’s Full Steam Ahead for Union Pacific South of the Border

    - by Transplace

    There are a number of current issues impacting truckload transportation between the U.S. and Mexico, including driver shortages, long wait times and tightened capacity. In order to continue to make rail and intermodal a viable – and economical – option for cross-border transportation, Union Pacific Railroad is focusing on enhancing the safety, velocity and reliability of its rail systems.

    Union Pacific has been investing significantly to support north/southbound volume and gateway access in Mexico. Much of this spending goes toward maintenance and capacity, and the company has also decided to continue investing in double tracking for many of its corridors to add freight capacity – the necessity of which points to strong growth of the Mexican-U.S. gateway.

    Shipper Symposium Snippets!

    - by Transplace

    Twelve years in and we couldn’t be more thrilled that our Shipper Symposium has become such a great gathering of economic, transportation and logistics leaders.  Connecting our customers and partners with each other and listening to speakers address everything from NAFTA and cross-border shipping to fueling talent into supply chain logistics has led to true collaboration in the transportation industry. 2014 just might be at the top of our list for the best Shipper Symposium yet!

    Remembering some of the things we learned from this year’s speakers got us thinking about how we could share these Shipper Symposium tidbits with you.

    Shipper Symposium 2014 – Day 3 Recap

    - by Transplace

    The final day did not disappoint as this year’s Shipper Symposium came to a close.  Attendees filed into the main ballroom in anticipation of hearing from speakers Economist Paul Bingham and former President of Mexico Vicente Fox in addition to hearing thoughts from the “NAFTA @ 20” panel.

    But it wouldn’t be a Shipper Symposium if there wasn’t some fun and humor to get our day started! First up was Kecia Gray, Vice President, Marketing & Corporate Communications, who addressed everyone with a short, but very interactive welcome. From highlighting details of how far the event has come over the last 12 years to showing off Shipper Symposium attendee selfies, Kecia thanked all the sponsors, attendees and especially her teams for helping make the Signature Event better and better with each following year.

    Shipper Symposium 2014 – Day 2 Recap

    - by Transplace

    Day 2 kicked off early for many Shipper Symposium attendees brave enough to face the cooler temps and stormy weather forecast to attend the 12th Annual Charity Golf Classic, but it was worth the gamble as blue skies and sunshine prevailed by late morning.

    Instead of golf, some attendees chose to check out the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum. As the 13th Presidential Library administered by the National Archives and Records Administration the museum is also a Federal agency and is located on the campus of Southern Methodist University.
