Our April Exeuctive Series Luncheon will take place on Thursday, April 20th, 2023 featuring guest speaker Ted Prince, Co-Founder & Chief Strategy Officer, Tiger Cool Express.

Ted will speak about building the intermodal ramp of tomorrow – the Tiger Tri-Cities Logistics Center. The envisioned Tiger Tri-Cities Logistics Center will benefit the entire agricultural and manufacturing community in the three-state region by providing cost-effective and environmentally benign transportation capacity. Initially, service is intended to be offered between: Wallula and the Northwest Seaport Alliance on-dock facilities for dry imports and exports (in ISO equipment) as well as between Wallula and Chicago (and beyond) with Tiger Cool Express refrigerated domestic containers. Service scope is expected to eventually expand into other markets, such as the I-5 corridor and Mexico.
