By Paul Garrimone In recent years, international trade has seen record numbers. In 2016, the total U.S. trade with foreign countries totaled $4.9 trillion – a little over half of that was imports, and, the remainder in exports. The U.S. and the European Union have continually remained in the top three countries in the world regarding exporting and importing, and, this is important in involving: capital goods, industrial supplies and commercial goods. Everything from: airplanes and automobiles; to pharmaceuticals and chemicals; to food and beverage; to semiconductors, electronics and computers; industrial machinery and equipment – even travel – all account for this international trade every second, of everyday. In 2016, the U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker presented CAP Worldwide with the President’s “E” Award for Export Service. The President’s “E” Award is the highest recognition any U.S. entity can receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports. International shipping is crucial to the worlds overall economy and plays an important aspect to CAP Logistics and our customers. It’s interesting; however, to focus in on one important member of the E.U. and that country is Sweden.
“Swedish massage oils, and the yummy and gummy delicious Swedish Fish candies alone account for probably over $100 trillion in imports and exports.” Our source, Bjorn Lyngstad stated to us (worth it to mention he is also a distant cousin to Anni-Frid Lyngstad, of the Swedish Pop Group ABBA). This is in fact completely made up, and, false. However, it is true that between the U.S. and Sweden, the annual bilateral trade in goods totals $25 billion annually. And, this doesn’t include the annual bilateral investments monies. Overall, Sweden is the 12th largest investor in the U.S. – creating just over 330,000 jobs across the country. Integral Swedish companies such as: Sandvik Group, SKF, Atlas Copco, ASEA Brown Boveri, Volvo and many others -- all have a hand in this partnership.
Millions of years ago, dinosaurs trekked the globe in search of survival, and humans wouldn’t have stood a chance in their environment. In modern times, humans trek the globe in search of evidence of dinosaurs’ eventual demise in the form of fossils and other paleontological pursuits. When it’s time to get fossils from one place to another, CAP Logistics and CAP Worldwide are industry leaders in shipping these particularly historic and fragile items. For example, CAP Worldwide recently shipped a major find, an ankylosaurus, from Montana to the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.
In general, once dinosaur fossils are removed from the ground, they are encased in hard plaster for transport. They are then carefully placed and secured onto a flatbed trailer before CAP Worldwide delivers the fossils to their new homes.
What’s next on the journey of this ankylosaurus? In its lifetime at the end of the Cretaceous Period (68-66 million years ago), it might have measured up to 20 feet long, 6 feet tall and 13,000 pounds. In this case, it is now owned by the Royal Ontario Museum, whose crew will work to reassemble the find as fully as possible based on its condition at the time of discovery.
This story not only illustrates how cool it is to see a dinosaur skull on the back of a truck, but it also illustrates the power of customer loyalty. CAP Logistics team member Mike Hoffman has been providing transportation solutions to this sector for several years, and he has customers who refuse to choose anyone else for their shipping needs.
One of Hoffman’s customers, GeoDecor, has many fossils for purchase at the Denver Coliseum Mineral, Fossil and Gem Show, a popular public show going on now. GeoDecor president and CEO Tom Lindgren’s passion for paleontology has led to a renowned global career, including providing market valuations for the U.S. Department of State and royal families in the Middle East.
Lindgren works to appraise the market value of fossils, but his appraisal of a quality transportation and logistics provider took hardly any work at all. In discussing his longtime working-relationship with Hoffman, Lindgren said, “When I pass something onto Mike to ship, I know it’ll be okay. I know he’ll get me the best service for the best price, and he’s available all along the way. He understands our needs and nuances, and that gives me a lot of confidence in the process.”
Several of the GeoDecor fossils have been uncovered in southwestern Wyoming. Lindgren and his sons have quarries there. “What better legacy to leave one’s children,” he mused. This philosophy is very similar to that of CAP Logistics and CAP Worldwide founder Gayle Dendinger whose family businesses have likewise left a legacy.
In related news, CAP Worldwide moved massive amounts of similar freight to over 68 countries during the Tucson Gem, Mineral and Fossil Showcase. Colorado Business Roundtable featured the Denver Gem and Mineral Show (across the street from the Denver Coliseum Mineral, Fossil and Gem Show) earlier this month on its Connect and Collaborate radio show, and the podcast is available. The rock shows are free, open to the public and will be in Denver through this Sunday, September 18, 2016. Don’t miss this chance to see and own your own piece of the fossil record.
On May 16, 2016, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker presented CAP Worldwide with the President’s “E” Award for Export Service at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. The President’s “E” Award is the highest recognition any U.S. entity can receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports. CAP Worldwide is an international logistics company with offices in Denver, CO and Houston, TX. CAP provides international air and ocean transportation services to companies across the United States, and is known for providing exemplary customer service for standard shipments, as well as handling complicated and project shipments.
“Exporting is crucial to the success of the businesses we work with, and our goal is to make it easy for our customers to ship their products so that they can spend their time focusing on their core business,” said Geoff Bergman, Operations Manager. “Every day we see the growth of our clients’ businesses, due in large part to exporting. This growth has enabled our clients to add jobs and support their local communities as they expand their bottom line.”
In 1961, President Kennedy signed an executive order reviving the World War II “E” symbol of excellence to honor and provide recognition to America's exporters. This year, Secretary Pritzker honored 123 U.S. companies with the President’s “E” Award for their outstanding work to reduce barriers to foreign markets and to open the door to more trade around the world.
In 2015, U.S. exports totaled $2.23 trillion, accounting for nearly 13 percent of U.S. GDP. Nationally, exports contributed to the U.S. economy, supporting an estimated 11.5 million jobs.
U.S. companies are nominated for the “E” Awards through the Department of Commerce’s U.S. Commercial Service office network, located within the Department’s International Trade Administration, with offices in 108 U.S. cities and more than 70 countries. Criteria for the award is based on four years of successive export growth and case studies which demonstrate valuable support to exporters resulting in increased exports for the company’s clients.

Through its nationwide network, CAP Logistics learned about a great way to connect customers while supporting veteran workforce education and domestic agriculture. CAP Logistics recently donated a customized transportation solution to the Growing Veterans program, transporting a greenhouse from its manufacturer in Minnesota to a Washington State farm where military veterans are growing more than just food.
Growing Veterans empowers military veterans to grow food, communities and each other. The nonprofit organization envisions an end the isolation that leads to suicide. It also seeks to make sustainable agriculture the norm. Growing Veterans currently operates three farms, but one of them was lacking a greenhouse which greatly limited its production capability.
Leadership Skagit County, an intensive program designed to develop leaders at all levels of the community, partnered with Growing Veterans to help fundraise for the needed greenhouse.
According to Leadership Skagit Team Blue Diamonds, the subgroup of Leadership Skagit leading this effort, its project goal is to “Raise That Roof” on a new greenhouse for Growing Veterans so that it can extend the growing season and provide a place for veterans of all abilities to heal, build community and grow delicious food. This goal involves not only fundraising but also building the structure.
CAP Logistics loaded the new greenhouse and trucked it approximately 1,750 miles to its new home at the Growing Veterans Starbird Road Farm near Mt. Vernon, Washington.
Kenny Holzemer, Development Director of Growing Veterans, said that the nonprofit organization "is so grateful to CAP Logistics for taking delivery our new greenhouse as it came off the production line in Minnesota, and delivering it to the very spot where it will soon stand. The greenhouse CAP has brought will provide year round opportunities for disabled veterans to fully engage in Growing Veterans' organic agriculture on our Starbird Farm in South Skagit County, Washington State.” Please check out the Growing Veterans website at growingveterans.org.
Growing Veterans and Leadership Skagit Team Blue Diamonds are now in the process of assembling the greenhouse on a foundation. Volunteers have already “put up a good portion of it and will be coming together this weekend to finish the job,” according to Leadership Skagit Team Blue Diamonds Facebook page dedicated to this Raise The Roof project.
Team Blue Diamonds reported that they are extremely close to the fundraising goal of $11,000. Petroleum refining company Tesoro donated $6,000 through its foundation, and that is how CAP Logistics came to hear about it.

Visit our CAP Logistics booth at IDEAS 2016 on May 4, 2016, at Port of Tucson, AZ. IDEAS 2016 is the 4th Annual Inter/Multimodal Development Expo Arizona-Sonora for mining innovation, multimodal transportation options and global business development opportunities.
The Dry Fork Mine is in the process of conducting an Environmental Assessment (EA) to add leased, permitted federal coal to its mine plan. The scoping period for the EA has begun. Information about the project can be found at: http://www.wrcc.osmre.gov/initiatives/dryForkMineA2.shtm Anything you could do to help us get the word out and comments on the desired scope of the EA to OSM by April 8, 2016 would be greatly appreciated.
Information about the permit activity and where to send your comments are below.
OSMRE Dry Fork Mine A2 EA C/O Lauren Mitchell Western Region Office, OSMRE 1999 Broadway, Suite 3320 Denver, CO 80202-3050
ATTN: OSMRE Dry Fork Mine A2 EA, C/O Lauren Mitchell,
The OSMRE is in the process of conducting an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the development of the Dry Fork Mine Amendment 2 area. This particular tract contains 33.4 million tons of coal in an area surrounded by industrial uses, coal mines and leased coal.
The coal is needed to supply long term, low cost, reliable fuel to rural utilities in the region. Therefore, in addition to the significant tax and royalty benefits from mining the A2 coal, mining the coal will directly employ approximately 80 people per year, and keep electricity rates reasonable for those same local and regional residents.
The Dry Fork Mine has an excellent record of strong environmental stewardship and providing significant benefits including safe, reliable and low-cost coal, good-paying jobs and substantial federal, state and local tax and royalty revenue. At a time when the main industries in Wyoming (oil/gas and coal mining) are suffering from a severe economic downturn, the ability to assure long term mining from the Dry Fork Mine is critical to the State and region's long term financial well-being. The Dry Fork Mine and its future are significantly integrated with the communities in northeast Wyoming. The benefits of the Dry Fork Mine to its employees and their families, and the significant economic activity it brings to the region has been demonstrated through years of responsible mining and reclamation. I urge the scope of the EA to heavily weigh consideration of the economic impacts of the mining operation on the State and local economies.
Thank you for this opportunity to guide the scoping for the EA for the Dry Fork Mine A2 project.

CAP Worldwide, a member of the Colorado Business Roundtable, moved massive amounts of freight to over 68 countries worldwide during the Tucson Gem, Mineral and Fossil Showcase Jan. 30 through Feb. 14, 2016.
In 1955, a group of mineral collectors and rock hounds from the Tucson Gem & Mineral Society held a free exhibition, open to the public, at a local elementary school. Year after year the show became larger and is now one of the largest gem, fossil, mineral and jewelry shows in the world. According to the Visit Tucson website, this show attracts 55,000 tourists annually to this two-week long show. Various show sites are set up through the Tucson area in hotels, parking lots, warehouses and tents in and around the city. In total, the city hosts 40 registered shows over a two-week period with approximately 3,000 exhibitors.
The CAP Worldwide team operated for three weeks out of a warehouse in Tucson designated for customers to gather their mineral specimens, fossils, gems and jewelry. The team aided in packaging the customers’ freight to get it ready to either load into ocean containers or to prepare it for air moves. Several of CAP Worldwide’s customers also arranged for live loading at the shows for stress-free conveyance. Additionally, the team facilitated the paperwork to ensure proper clearance into the customers' respective countries as paperwork requirements vary per country.
Shipments are still moving all around the world with customers still arranging for freight moves. As of today, CAP Worldwide has moved over 400 tons of freight into 68 countries globally.
CAP Worldwide is an International Air Transport Association (IATA) endorsed agent and FMC licensed NVOCC offering complete export and import air and ocean freight services. CAP’s strong partnerships with the world’s premier air and ocean carriers allows CAP to offer competitive rates and transit times using their global agent network.
