Rep. Alan Lowenthal of California’s 47th District will be honored by the Intermodal Association of North America with its Intermodal Achievement Award.

Lowenthal, who previously announced that he’s retiring at the end of his current term, is being lauded for his public service work in championing the supply chain by creating and/or pushing legislation that furthered those efforts, including his work in passing the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021.

He will be one of three who will be honored by the organization. Ted Prince, chief strategy officer and co-founder of Tiger Cool Express, will receive the Silver Kingpin Award and Jim Newsome, executive advisor to the South Carolina Ports Authority, will be presented the 2022 Chairman’s Award.

They will be recognized at Intermodal EXPO’s opening general session on Sept. 13 at the Long Beach Convention Center.

“On behalf of the board, I commend these three individuals for what they have brought to the intermodal industry over many decades,” said Noel Hacegaba, IANA chairman and deputy executive director of the Port of Long Beach. “The impact of their contributions will be felt by intermodal stakeholders as well as the general public well beyond their respective careers.”
