   OIA Global on Tuesday named Keith Lovetro, who retired as the head of TRAC Intermodal at the end of July, as its new chief executive officer.
   In its announcement Tuesday, OIA Global, headquartered in Portland, Ore., said Lovetro is joining the company during a period of rapid growth and will assume overall responsibility for the financial performance of the company, its long-term strategic vision and day-to-day operating performance.
   J. A. Lacy, president and CEO of parent company LDI Ltd., said, “With his well-rounded logistics and transportation experience, we are confident that Keith is the leader for OIA’s future, and with the support of the OIA Board of Directors, he will push the organization to deliver exceptional results for our customers, employees and stakeholders.”
   Lovetro joined intermodal marine equipment services provider and chassis lessor TRAC Intermodal as president and CEO in 2011. He is credited with doubling the company’s revenue during his tenure.
   OIA said Lovetro “received outstanding training early in his career working for best-in-class organizations, including FedEx, DHL and YRC, where he developed his finance, commercial and operating expertise.”

   Since its founding in 1988, OIA has grown into a $1.3 billion supply chain management company with a presence in 28 countries.

Not that long ago, it seemed inconceivable that the good times in [U.S.] trucking would end, but here we are back down to Earth. Growth in manufacturing – the most significant driver of trucking activity – has subsided, and residential construction remains stagnant. However, there are some near-term positives, such as lower diesel prices. Also, carriers are responding to flagging demand by ending their hiring spree.

The fastest liner transit (excluding transshipments) from China to the Netherlands is from Yantian to Rotterdam at 23 days, according to BlueWater Reporting’s Country to Country Transit Analysis by Service tool.
