NASCO Your Advocate for Trade Along the North-South Central Corridor Zone Tiffany Melvin Executive Director NASCO MAP Interstate Highways BNSF Rail Lines

UP Rail Lines KCS Rail Lines Ferromex Rail Lines What is NASCO? NASCO is a tri-national, non-profit, trade and transportation coalition working to make international and domestic trade more efficient and secure along the existing network of transportation

systems (including highways, rail, air, inland ports and deep-water ports) running north-south through the central U.S., Canada and Mexico. NASCO is a non-governmental agency that is encouraging the public and private sectors to work with a common voice to address critical national and international trade, transportation, security and environmental issues. The NASCO Trade and

Transportation Zone The NASCO transportation and trade zone encompasses Interstate Highways 35, 29 and 94, and the significant east/west connectors to those highways in the United States, Canada and Mexico. NASCO works with all transportation and trade systems along this zone, including roads, rail, air, inland ports and deep sea ports. The Zone directly impacts the continental trade flow of North America. Membership includes public and private sector entities along the zone in Canada, the United States and Mexico. NASCOS SCOPE

Tri-national NASCO membership truly reflects the international scope of the trade zone and the regions it impacts. Scope: From the largest border crossing in North America (The Ambassador Bridge in Detroit, Michigan and Windsor, Canada) and Manitoba, Canada, to the second largest border crossing of Laredo, Texas, and Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, extending to the deep water Ports of

Manzanillo, and Lazaro Cardenas, Mexico. Who are NASCO members? Public sector: Cities and counties/provinces along the trade zone State departments of transportation Port authorities Other government agencies Private sector: Corporations with interests in

trade/transportation along the trade zone. NASCO Executive Officers President Regional V.P. of Mexico City Councilman George Blackwood Kansas City, Missouri Captain Hector Mora, Port Director Manzanillo, Mexico

Strategic planning Coordination Advocacy Education NASCOs goals include the development of safe and secure tracking processes, data aggregation and logistics systems to enhance Homeland Security while

also facilitating tri-national trade. NASCO Programs NAFTRACS: NASCO is developing a technology pilot project designed to enhance security and efficiency of transportation, trade processing and logistics systems. NAIPN: Developing an active inland port network along our corridor to specifically alleviate congestion at maritime ports and our nations borders. Educational Consortium: Bringing together institutions that

play a vital role in transportation and providing critical studies and solutions to the ever changing needs and requirements the NASCO Zone continues to face. Partnership with the EPA: (Blue Skyways Collaborative) Principal goal is to improve air quality and reduce air pollution emissions through new technology, market forces, promotion of the use of alternative fuels, and economic incentives. NAFTRACS North American Facilitation of Transportation, Trade, Reduced Congestion and Security (NAFTRACS)

Three-phase pilot project designed to focus on business processes and information as freight is transported from sellers to buyers. Creates a partnership between businesses and local, state/ provincial, and federal governments, while fostering cooperation among the same entities. The pilot project will use actual freight shipments moving through the NASCO trade zone and will engage voluntary industry participants who will allow actual freight shipments to be tracked and monitored for location and condition of freight. Various federal and state DOT participants will have access to the necessary resulting information.

NAIPN North American Inland Port Network A sub-committee of NASCO, the NAIPN has been tasked with developing an active inland port network along our trade zone to specifically alleviate congestion at maritime ports and our nations borders. The NAIPN envisions an integrated, efficient and secure network of inland ports specializing in the transportation of containerized cargo

in North America. The main guiding principal of the NAIPN is to develop logistics systems that enhance global security, but at the same time do not impede the cost-effective and efficient flow of goods. A comprehensive NAIPN Web site has been developed (under the NASCO site) to raise the awareness of individual inland ports along the zone and bring attention to NAIPN. Blue Skyways Collaborative

[email protected] Transportation is key to the productivity, and therefore the success, of virtually every business in America. Congestion and delay not only waste our time as individuals, they also burden our businesses and our entire economy with inefficiency and higher costs. Former Secretary of Transportation Norman Y.
