    Transplace Mexico will "play a strategic role in … demystifying freight movements at the border," says Kevin Higgins, vice president of International Services for Transplace.
    Transplace Mexico will be co-managed Troy Ryley and Jose Minarro, who have a combined 30 years of management experience of operating third party logistics services providers in the Mexico region.
    Transplace Mexico service offerings will include transportation management systems, freight brokerage, U.S. Customs brokerage, Mexican Customs brokerage, border processing, warehousing and distribution, ocean forwarding and airfreight services. ... egory_id=2

    What: The 2008 University of Arkansas Supply Chain Center Conference
    Where: Embassy Suites Hotel in Rogers, Arkansas
    When: Wednesday, April 23, 2008 from 8:00am-3:15pm
    Theme: Sourcing and New Market Development in the Global Supply Chain
    Global supply chain practitioners have focused considerable efforts in past years on importing to keep their supply lines open, active and secure. Now those same retailers, consumer product goods companies and their 3PL and transportation partners are focused on developing new markets on virtually every continent. They know firsthand what happens when one attempts to take American best practices to other countries of the world without first learning individual country market and logistical needs. So what works? What lessons did they learn? How do they take these valuable lessons into other new markets and build responsive global supply chains? Plan to join Mark Holloway, Vice President Customer Service & Logistics Excellence from Unilever Thailand, Jeff Langenfeld Vice President of Merchandise Replenishment at Wal-Mart and a host of speakers as we explore Sourcing and New Market Developments in the Global Supply Chain. More Information and Registration available at

    I have read internal documents from various corporations that are involved in/with "SPP/NAU" related projects and plans. These all were obtained through/by the open records act. It is absolutely breathtaking how utterly shallow and callous these people are. It is pure business to them. Nothing more,nothing less. The American people,as a nation and a culture are wholly and utterly irrelevant and rarely mentioned in these communiques. If they are, it is to reitterate how they will have to work around the legislative in order to accomplish their goals. They speak,in these memos about this, as if they're talking about any commodity,like they're selling cogs or watermelons. Our history,our future,our culture,our heritage,all of it. Nothing but profit,at any cost. These are our opponents in this cold war for the very heart of our great country and the future of our children. God bless you. Pray for our country as we are up against very powerful forces.

    A Catholic bus driver whom I have long known and supports my public protests for Ramos and Compean, told me that the NAU and SPP snakes act as they do because they have NO shame because they have NO principles such as DUTY, HONOR, COUNTRY!
