   An Alabama man was convicted in U.S. District Court in Montgomery, Ala., last month for computer-related fraud for hacking into Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) databases.
    Gary Scott Stratton was a private consultant with a company that provided motor carrier consulting services in Alabama. The U.S. Department of Transportation Office of Inspector General (DOT-OIG) said between June and January, Stratton intentionally accessed FMCSA databases without authorization for financial gain and commercial advantage.
    Stratton gained access to sensitive FMCSA databases using credentials he obtained while working as an Alabama Highway Patrol trooper, DOT-OIG said.
    Stratton entered a guilty plea on March 5 and was convicted on March 8, DOT-OIG said.

[Air] cargo is in the doldrums with smaller volumes being shipped over the last four months than a year ago. And with order books weakening, consumer confidence deteriorating and trade tensions hanging over the industry, it is difficult to see an early turnaround. 

The container liner service offering the fastest transits from China to the U.S. is the OCEAN Alliance’s NWX/TPN at 11 days from Ningbo to Tacoma, according to BlueWater Reporting’s Port to Port Transit Analysis by Carrier application, one of the many tools offered by BlueWater Reporting.
