Richard Coyle has been hard at work being an advocate for international and domestic transportation. In the past month, he has met with seven legislators and the Governor’s Office to discuss a wide range of issues affecting goods movement in California. Two of the most pressing topics discussed included the port labor dispute and infrastructure funding.
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).
