JAXPORT has named Jacqueline Glass as its new director of procurement services.
   Glass has more than 25 years of experience as a supply chain professional focused on strategic sourcing and contract negotiation. Most recently she served as the senior manager of procurement for the Jacksonville Transportation Authority.
   In her new role, Glass also will be responsible for JAXPORT’s Small and Emerging Business program, which promotes equal access to all capital and procurement contracts.

   The Duluth Seaway Port Authority has hired Dean Lembke as facilities manager.
   Lembke will serve as the agency’s liaison with tenants, service and government agencies, private contractors and other property users to derive safe and efficient use of port authority-owned land, structures, equipment and other assets.
   He previously was a site supervisor with North Shore Track overseeing rail construction and maintenance projects. During his tenure as a senior project coordinator for Krech Ojard and Associates, Lembke provided 20 months of onsite construction oversight during the port authority’s $18 million redevelopment of the Clure Terminal.

In the face of Brexit uncertainty, shippers are expected to start moving their distribution hubs and warehouses from the U.K. to the European Union. Assets based in the EU will start becoming a safer investment, avoiding any U.K. logistics delays caused by Brexit. Cash-flow problems are also expected for U.K. shippers in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

On a typical day in FY2018, CBP seized 4,657 pounds of narcotics, $290,411 in undeclared or illicit currency, and $3.7 million worth of products with intellectual property rights violations.
