The strength of a seaport lies in the stakeholders that participate in its supply chain. These stakeholders consist of terminal operators, shipping lines, freight forwarders, road and rail operators, federal authorities, and the other countless operators that are involved in moving goods along.
Nicom Maritime, a division of Nicom IT Solutions of Halifax won a contract to install a seaport software system for the Port of Beaumont in Beaumont, Texas.
I’ve started a list of things that should be in the Smithsonian Institution but aren’t. So far I’ve got one thing: the original scoreboard in the Houston Astrodome.
Earlier in the year, Nicom put into production for the Port of Halifax an “Enhanced Container Tracking” web application, which answers the question definitively, “Where is my container?”. That seems to be a simple enough question, but if the answer is “over there, see, under that stack of other containers,” then that doesn’t do you much good.
I just got back from vacation (Florida. Great. Thanks.) and I discovered Uber. My first impression was a good one, and I found the whole experience better than taking a cab. You basically download an app and provide it with your credit card info, all of which takes a minute, then when you need a cab you call up the app and order one.
We’d love to hear from you
