UPS has named Philippe Gilbert president of supply chain solutions, effective this month.
    Gilbert, who will be based at UPS’ global headquarters in Atlanta, is also joining the UPS Management Committee, the company’s senior-most leadership group.
    Gilbert most recently served as regional CEO of the Americas for DB Schenker Logistics and was based in Miami. Prior to that, he was regional CEO for West Europe from 2013 to 2015 and was based in Paris.
    From 2005 to 2013, Gilbert served as executive vice president for GEODIS Wilson, the freight management division of the GEODIS Group.
    He has also held leadership roles in the logistics space with Saga S.A., Circle International and Eagle Global Logistics.

Imperial Logistics International has appointed Sandro Knecht to the newly created position of chief commercial officer. Knecht will be based in Zurich.
   He most recently worked at CEVA Logistics, where he spent seven years in senior management positions, most recently as executive vice president of global supply chain solutions, and a member of the Global Business Development Board.
   Prior to that, he spent 17 years at Panalpina World Transport, where he held several senior positions.

    The Containerization & Intermodal Institute (CII) has named Lisa LoManto Aurichio executive director, succeeding Barbara Spector Yeninas, who served as executive director since 1985 and has now been named senior adviser.   
    Aurichio will continue her position as president of BSY Associates Inc. (BSYA), the international marketing communications and special event agency founded by Yeninas in 1974. BSYA will continue as the CII secretariat. Aurichio will work in tandem with Yeninas, who remains as BSYA chairman, to oversee and execute programs and projects for international trade and transportation leaders.

Louisiana is said to be the hardest-hit state by proposed tariffs overall, with the vast majority of that impact coming from soybeans. Not because we are the top soy-producing state, but because we are the gateway port for that product to the rest of the world.

Spot container rates from Shanghai to Los Angeles stood at $1,335 per FEU as of May 23, down 2% year-over-year, while rates from Shanghai to New York totaled $2,656 per FEU, up 8% year-over-year, according to Drewry’s World Container Index.
