)-- This year, the organization will honor the 2010 Person of the Year, Mr. Richard M. Larrabee, Director of the Port Commerce Department at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Mr. Larrabee has been managing a multi-billion dollar port redevelopment program at the Port of New York and New Jersey. When completed, the program will help the port accommodate future growth that is projected to double over the next decade and even quadruple by the year 2040. IES has supported the organization for many years and is proud to show its continued support of Mr. Larabee and the NY/NJFFBA.

From the beginning, IES has positioned itself as one of the foremost technology innovators in the field of ISF 10+2, providing the E-Cellerate Solution for ISF Compliance. The software company was one of the first software providers out the door with an ISF Solution, having been hand-picked by CBP to take part in a pilot program.
