  • "Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace" opened at 5,000 theaters across the country May 19 - right on schedule, thanks to some logistics wizardry at Entertainment Transportation Specialists and Danzas. Because the threat of theft was so high, ETS commissioned an inconspicuous case to carry the seven reels of film per master print; absent were any markings that would show the "Star Wars" creation was inside.
  • The past president of a bar association for the nation's motor carrier attorneys looks upon the Department of Transportation and its Federal Highway Administration as the village rascals, habitually caught doing wrong and each time taking solemn oaths to reform. Attorney James F. Flint said he's heard enough empty words about motor carrier safety from DOT and that it's time for Transportation Secretary Rodney Slater and Federal Highway Administrator Kenneth Wykle to shut down their repetitive public relations machine and take long overdue action to protect the public safety.
  • The Dutch post office always has been slightly ahead of its time, but in 1996 it really gave the rest of the world a reason to sit up and take notice when it paid $1.6 billion to acquire TNT Express Worldwide. That deal started the ball rolling on a consolidation of the freight transportation industry in Europe that has changed the competitive landscape dramatically. And it is still changing. TNT Post Group's CEO sees Europe as a canvas much like the United States 10 years ago. Ten years from now it will be a vastly different picture.
  • The Big Four LTL presidents and CEOs go on the record in a no-holds-barred Traffic World interview. After enduring a 24-day strike in 1994 to win the right to put more freight on the railroads, the Big Four are now in the process of taking freight off the rails and putting it back on the highways because of shoddy rail service. Yellow Freight System's Bill Zollars, Roadway Express's Mike Wickham, ABF Freight System's David Stubblefield and Consolidated Freightways' Patrick Blake explain why over-the-road service is coming back. They also discuss the future of their industry, the Teamsters, rates and services as well as their evolving relationships with the American Trucking Associations and the Motor Freight Carriers Association.
  • Last week it was RPS taking a stab at home delivery. This week Airborne Express is jumping into the home delivery market with both feet by partnering with the U.S. Postal Service to move packages from businesses to consumers' doors. Under the agreement, Airborne will take its customers' freight to the Postal Service's local depots. From there, the Airborne packages become USPS property with the men and women in blue making the final delivery.
  • Shippers in the U.S. will be sought out by the Canadian Industrial Transportation Association for the first time this year to attend the association's annual meeting. It's a sure sign of converging concerns among shippers on both sides of the border about increasing railroad market power as more and more freight is expected to pass over the border. The National Industrial Transportation League is holding up Canada's policy regarding terminal access as a model for improving competition for shippers in the U.S.
  • Technology is speeding paperless trade but it's delivering security headaches for ocean freight companies too. The problem is that while technology speeds up the flow of cargo information, it also stores it in systems that can be accessed by criminals inside and out of freight facilities such as ports. Ironically, the very efficiencies that systems such as EDI bring can increase the risk of cargo losses through theft. Now all a thief needs is a number plate or a PIN number and information that can be obtained through hacking or via an unscrupulous port employee.
  • Viewlocity, which was formed a relatively short 11 weeks ago and only last week received its name, plans to break into the electronic commerce world, first focusing on its primary software product, a software integration application. The company was formed from the combination of Battery Ventures, a Wellesley, Mass.-based venture capital firm specializing in technology companies, and Frontec AB, a Swedish information technology company. Greg Cronin, chief executive officer of the new company, and formerly executive vice president of Manhattan Associates, has hired a number of noted key executives for the new Viewlocity team, including Jeff Cashman, formerly senior vice president of global marketing and alliances for McHugh Software International; Jon Kirkegaard, previously vice president of logistics operations and supply-chain for i2 Technologies; and Paul Lieske, previously vice president of customer services for Manhattan Associates.
