Amanda Coates, Commercial Manager, Port of New Orleans. My 15 years’ experience in Customs processes, Equipment Management, M&R, Intermodal Logistics, Rail Operations, Container Terminal and Vessel Operations, Export Commercial matters, and Global Sales, allow me to carry an insightful variety of expertise and innovation to the transportation industry. Encouraging synergies between Ocean, Rail and Truck to expand the Imports and Exports of the Gulf and Mid-South Regions for long term sustainability is a rewarding achievement that I will continue to push for. For 6 years, I have had the pleasure of being a part of the Operation Smile Charity, assisting with organization of a successful golf outing which has raised nearly 100k in charitable contributions for Operation Smile. Outside of the professional environment I enjoy friends and family, the beach, memorable experiences, and spending time with genuine people who inspire me.
I have been at Mallory Alexander International Logistics since 2008 where, with the help of a few colleagues, grew our general commodities domestic trucking and inland distribution division, Mallory Transport. Founded in 1925, Mallory Alexander International Logistics is a fourth-generation company with more than 500 employees and operations throughout the United States, Hong Kong, and China. Currently in Business Development for Mallory Transport, I believe that my connections throughout the mid-south would open doors for new members with great ideas and support.
Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, various sporting events around Memphis as well as supporting my Alma Mater…. THE University of Memphis.
I currently serve on the Memphis World Trade Club board. It has been an honor to be able to work with fellow international trade professionals in the Memphis area in promoting avenues for growth in global trade as well as within the Memphis community.
