Jonathan Lamb, President, Lake Superior Warehousing/Duluth Cargo Connect.
Jonathan Lamb first joined Lake Superior Warehousing Company (LSW) in 2006. He is responsible for retaining and generating commerce through the Port of Duluth-Superior via Duluth's Clure Public Marine Terminal, working with waterborne and overland carriers, shippers, receivers, agents, forwarders and organizations engaged in domestic and international trade.
Operator of the general cargo facilities at the Port Authority-owned Clure Public Marine Terminal since 1991, LSW has established a worldwide reputation for its ability to handle all types of general cargo whether by ocean, rail or truck. In 2017, LSW entered into a partnership with CN Railway opening a new intermodal container terminal within the heart of its existing logistics facility in Duluth, MN that provides direct access to all three coasts. In both 2011 and 2015, Duluth was voted the top port in North America by dimensional shippers in the Railway Industrial Clearance Association (RICA). In 2019, the inaugural global port/terminal operator of the year award was received from Heavy Lift & Project Forwarding International Magazine.
Prior to joining LSW, Lamb worked six years for the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway. He also has more than 20 years of experience working with business and industry professionals and representatives of state and local government. Lamb is a graduate of St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minn., where he obtained a B.A. in political science.
Lamb is a past-president of the Transload Distribution Association of North America. He is also president of the Minnesota Warehouse Association, a member of the Duluth-Superior Maritime Club, a member of the Duluth-Superior and the Minneapolis-St. Paul Transportation Clubs and serves as LSW's representative on several national and regional maritime and trade associations.
Kate Ferguson, Director of Trade & Business Development, is the first point of contact for companies pursuing domestic and international trade opportunities. She is responsible for developing, attracting and retaining business for the Port Authority and its properties, and coordinates business expansion projects.
