  • Domestic package delivery carriers have been complaining for years that the U.S. Postal Service uses its monopoly position to engage in unfair and anti-competitive practices. But compared with Europe, the U.S. is a model of fair market competition. With the liberalization of Europe's postal industry, once sluggish national postal services such as Deutsche Post AG, TNT Post Group in the Netherlands and La Poste in France have entered the marketplace with a vengeance. With huge cash reserves from monopolies on domestic mail delivery and toothless enforcement from the European Commission, they appear unstoppable.
  • U.S. port officials fear if tax dollars are not provided by Congress to help them deepen harbors to between 45 and 50 feet, the newest generation of containerships will abandon U.S. ports for Vancouver and Halifax in Canada and Freeport in the Grand Bahamas. The American Association of Port Authorities is lobbying for quick passage of the Water Resources Development Act, which would provide federal dollars to help ports on both coasts deepen channels and make other improvements to enhance their competitiveness.
  • There's no shortage of electronic commerce startups these days. One of the newest is WorldSpy Corp., which opened its virtual doors in December. The company describes itself as an "online shopping portal" that allows consumers to do their comparison shopping online and even order directly from one of the approximately 30 manufacturers that sell directly to them through the site. The site culls articles from consumer publications and the Hearst publishing group for its product information. Consumers can log onto the site and check out 12 different categories, or "pavilions" such as electronics, jewelry or home and garden, for product comparisons.
  • Towne Air Freight has decided to disaffiliate with the American Trucking Associations' Air & Expedited Motor Carriers Conference unless there is a sharp reduction in its dues assessment. Towne Chairman Duke Downey says his company's financial commitment will rise from $520 currently for membership in the Air & Expedited group to around $50,000 under the new ATA dues structure. Besides Towne leaving, the entire Air & Expedited group could be looking for a new partner, Downey says, as specialized carriers seek more value for their trade association dollar.
  • As waves of alien plants and animals invade the U.S., the government sets up an Invasive Species Council to help mobilize a counterattack. Sound like an "X-Files" plot? It isn't. Hordes of exotic pests landing on U.S. shores have prompted the U.S. government to establish an interagency group to combat the problem. The implications for U.S. trade could be serious. Wood-boring insects that already have destroyed thousands of trees soon may be eating into shippers' bottom lines.
  • How far apart are the Western railroads and their customers on what are the "best practices" for railroad customer service? The two groups got an inkling of that at a recent rail shipper conference held in Houston Feb. 1. Whereas Union Pacific, Burlington Northern Santa Fe and Kansas City Southern focused on how new Internet technology will mean a bright future for the railroads and their customers, a shipper representative believed old-fashioned diligent work - on the part of real people - was just as important.
  • It's finally over. Much to the relief of shippers everywhere, the pilots of Federal Express ratified a five-year contract with the express carrier, ending a labor dispute that stretches back more than five years. Both sides claimed victory, but the contract is especially sweet for the pilots and their union, which struggled long to gain recognition. The new contract, which takes effect on May 31, is the first collective bargaining agreement between FedEx and the FedEx Pilots Association. At least 87 percent of the pilots, who are the only unionized workers at FedEx, approved the deal, which gives them a 17 percent pay increase over the next five years.
  • Mobile Security Communications officially acquired Xata Corp.'s Enterprise Technologies group. The company plans to make Xata Enterprise Technology's applications, particularly TBMS, a core part of its corporate strategy, said Thad Eidman, president and COO of Mobile Security Communications. TBMS, or Transportation Breakdown and Management System, assists fleets with breakdowns and service needs and includes XET's other main application, Dealer Locator, a database of 30,000 service facilities in 35 categories with street-level maps for each location. Eidman expects XET to be profitable in 60 days, although Xata Corp. lost money with the unit. TBMS will be packaged with services offered by MSC to create a "total solution."
  • Canadian highway accidents involving transport trucks should be investigated by the Transportation Safety Board of Canada rather than provincial or local police forces, according to a special Canadian Senate committee on transportation safety. The Canadian trucking industry is provincially regulated and accidents are investigated by police who likely have little training in what to look. The report urged the board be put in charge of examining collisions involving trucks over 4,500 kilograms.
