In the summer of 2016, Lake Zurich residents Shari Gullo and Diane Myers hosted a book drive to send 10,700 books to the impoverished Big Ugly region of West Virginia. Working with West Virginia nonprofit Step by Step, the two set up collection bins throughout Lake Zurich and neighboring communities to collect books for a region with no public library or bookstores. The nearest public library is nearly 40 minutes away from the tiny coal mining region in the Appalachian mountains.
ATTS Logistics played a part by providing warehouse space, labor, and materials to package and palletize the books. ATTS also arranged a carrier to ship the resources to the Big Ugly region. ATTS is excited to help deliver more books to the Big Ugly region this October. If you are interested in donating books or resources, please email Jessica at firstname.lastname@example.org.

“The merchandise-trade deficit unexpectedly grew in August to $75.8 billion, the widest in six months, as exports of food, industrial supplies and autos declined, Commerce Department data showed Thursday. A separate report from the department showed corporate investment took a breather, with business equipment orders at U.S. factories falling in August following a run of strong gains, while shipments of those items slowed. . . . While economists say it may be too early to detect the exact impact from trade disputes, the data bear watching as the headwind and uncertainty look unlikely to dissipate. Thursday’s reports come after the U.S. and China imposed tariffs on each other in late August, which followed others implemented in early July. The U.S. added tariffs on another $200 billion of Chinese imports this week—the largest escalation of the trade war so far.”

“The nationwide average price of diesel continued to climb last week, according to the Department of Energy’s weekly report released Sept. 24. Trucking’s main fuel increased nationally by three-tenths of a cent to $3.271 from $3.268. Diesel now costs 48.3 cents a gallon more than it did a year ago, when the price was $2.788. The average price of diesel increased in all but two of the 10 regions the Energy Department report monitors. Prices dropped in the Rocky Mountain region by eight-tenths of a cent, to $3.355 a gallon from $3.363, and by four-tenths of a cent in the Gulf Coast, to $3.052 from $3.056.”

“The intermodal and third-party logistics industries are experiencing growth that is running parallel to the strength of the economy. Joni Casey, executive director of the Intermodal Association of North America, said intermodal volumes were at 12.6 million loads through August, up about 7% year-to-date over last year. . . . The third-party logistics sector is also experiencing growth, and Evan Armstrong, president of Armstrong & Associates, estimates the global 3PL market will grow to $968 billion this year. That compares with $869 billion last year. ‘In the U.S. we’re going to wind up around $200 billion — about 8% growth over last year,’ he said.”
