In the US, Georgia Ports Authority has introduced a proprietary tracking system for the processing of break bulk cargo, which will henceforth be dispatched more quickly and also be tracked in real time. According to executive director Curtis Foltz,“It is another facet of our ongoing effort to improve GPA operations and reduce the transit times of cargo flowing across our docks.”

The general cargo system software will be deployed at the port of Savannah, where items for dispatch can be monitored down to single item level. At the same time, the turnaround time for road haulage vehicles has been improved along with cargo visibility at the adjacent rail yard.
