 CONSTRUCTION/ENERGY INDUSTRY
 PALO ALTO, Calif., June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Emery Worldwide has named Ray Whitmire, a 20-year heavy-freight services veteran in the Houston area, as national account executive for the air freight company's construction and energy industry sales and marketing program.
 The announcement was made today by David I. Beatson, vice president - sales and marketing for Emery Worldwide. Whitmire will report to Douglas J. Brittin, the company's director of construction and energy industry sales and marketing.
 Whitmire, previously sales manager at the company's Houston terminal, will assist Brittin in developing Emery's heavy freight capabilities in Texas and Oklahoma. He will work with the region's engineering and construction, oil, utility and other energy-related industries.
 "Whitmire will be responsible for focusing Emery's efforts in providing a flexible, quick response to the unique requirements of this industry," Brittin said.
 According to Brittin, oil industry, construction engineering firms and other companies within the industry rely on air freight to rush deliveries of replacement parts, machinery, assembly components and heavy equipment to meet time-critical plant repair or project construction deadlines at job sites.
 "Emery is uniquely qualified to meet the needs of these customers with its own lift capability, dedicated charter services or through its ability to operate as a freight forwarder utilizing cargo space on commercial airlines," Brittin explained.
 The company also plans to expand its warehousing and inventory distribution system in the Houston area by offering companies based there this specialized service for expedited global, regional and local deliveries. Emery also works closely with other companies of its parent organization, Consolidated Freightways, Inc. (NYSE: CNF), to provide a full package of services that include packing, crating and shipping for land and ocean transportation.
