Savi Networks to Extend Services to MTC Ports

Monday, January 09, 2006
Savi Networks, a provider of RFID-enhanced information services for global container shipments, and Marine Terminals Corporation (MTC), announced an agreement to extend SaviTrak services to MTC's port facilities. MTC is a leading U.S. stevedore and terminal operating company that handles more than 25 percent of the cargo container shipments on the U.S. West Coast. The partnership brings MTC terminals into Savi Networks' growing global community of ocean cargo terminal operators leveraging SaviTrak's managed information services. MTC operates 26 terminals in 13 ports across the U.S. West coast and at major ports in the U.S. South Atlantic region. Savi Networks is building an automated information service that leverages RFID and other ISO-compliant Automatic Identification and Data Collection (AIDC) technologies at global ports to further improve the efficiency, effectiveness and security of global supply chains. Initially, implementations are focused on the highest-volume ports, including Los Angeles, Long Beach, Seattle, Tacoma and Oakland. Los Angeles- Long Beach is the highest-volume load center in the United States and Seattle- Tacoma is the third largest. SaviTrak information services are based on technology solutions deployed worldwide the past decade by the U.S. Department of Defense and allied defense organizations to track and manage more than 1.5 million RFID-tagged shipments. The commercial cargo solution has been successfully applied in a number of industry- and government-driven initiatives the past four years to improve the efficiency and security of container movements.
