The St. Lawrence Seaway has debuted its new Traffic Management Improvement Project
(TMIP). The project is a joint venture between the St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation on the Canadian side and the U.S.-based St. Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation.
Installed at the St. Lambert, St. Catherine and Massena control centers, the system is able to monitor and schedule vessel traffic on both sides of the border. Via transponders placed aboard the ship as it enters the Seaway, the system provides controllers with vital information such as the vessel's inbound position, course and destination.
