Richard Coyle, President, Devine Intermodal was inaugurated as the 2015 President of the California Trucking Association (CTA) at the association’s recent Annual Membership Conference.
Dick’s theme for the association this year is “Gateway California” which will promote the important role international trade plays in the state. In this vein, there were two interesting and timely panels at this year’s conference. The first being “An Overview of California’s Three Largest Deep Water Ports” (pictured above), and the second being “Can California Retain Its Number One Position as America’s Preeminent Gateway” (pictured below).
