Record Cotton Exports Predicted at Mallory Alexander International Logistics Cotton Forum


Participants at the first Cotton Forum sponsored by Mallory Alexander International Logistics (www.mallorygroup.com) explored issues surrounding the record cotton export volumes expected to move through U.S. ports through July 2006. The Forum was held in Memphis on Nov. 30 and was attended by Mallory Alexander's freight forwarding customers including leading cotton merchants and their respective ocean carrier base.

Memphis, TN, December 14, 2005 --(PR.com)-- Cotton exports from the United States 2005-2006 season are expected to reach 16.2 million bales. Forum participants reviewed implications and preparations being made to prepare for these volumes. Subjects discussed included:
• Communication
• Staffing
• Equipment Availability
• Logistics
--Warehousing and ready dates
--Trucking/Intermodal Issues
--Vessel Sailing and Proper Manifesting
• Documentation
• Accurate and timely Bill of Lading

“The industry’s conditions this season demand a more effective way of getting the job done, and the conference was a great way to start,” said participant Gene Key, District Sales Manager of Hyundai Merchant Marine. “It was a very productive meeting and our view is that the face-to-face interaction was helpful in bringing various challenges to the forefront of discussion.”

According to participant Barry Gibson, OOCL Trade Manager for cotton, "Everyone has to work together this season to meet the challenges presented. The conference helped to make the industry more aware of the need for better forecasting and planning so that we can deal with large volumes when trucking services are in short supply."

Mallory Alexander convened the first Cotton Conference as an ongoing forum for industry peers to share information and best practices for the ultimate benefit of cotton shippers and consumers. “We were pleased to put this meeting together and we found the benefits to have been well worth the effort,” says Neely Mallory III of Mallory Alexander.
