Executive Moves: Transplace and LSO

TMS provider brings on chief technology officer; regional parcel carrier hires final-mile president and sales leader.

 
   Transportation management services and logistics technology provider Transplace has hired Jim French as chief technology officer.
   Former CTO Mike Dieter will transition to the role of chief information officer.
   French (pictured above) previously served as CTO at MoneyGram International. He also has held IT leadership positions in the travel technology sector, including at Sabre.
   Regional parcel carrier Lone Star Overnight (LSO) has hired Terry Douglas as president of the final-mile division and Dennis Jones as vice president of sales for the parcel division.
   Douglas most recently was executive vice president of Mclean Power Systems. He also has worked with private equity firms and led organizations through growth opportunities.

   Jones joins LSO after a 36-year career with UPS, for which he built and managed sales teams both domestically and internationally.

We are seeing many more pricing requests for Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. Few actually moved their supply chains outside of China because this will take time, especially for larger shippers. However, Taiwan and South Korea are in a unique situation: Some manufacturing had shifted to mainland China in the last decade due to lower costs, but that infrastructure is still in Taiwan and South Korea. Some manufacturing may temporarily shift back there until Southeast Asia infrastructure catches up. 

The Port of Prince Rupert handled a record 26.7 million metric tons of cargo in 2018, up 10% year-over-year.
