PortVision Launches $500,000 Grant Initiative to Improve Ports, Waterways

PortVision, a Web-based service for the maritime industry, today launched the PortVision CONNECT initiative, which includes a $500,000 commitment to fund the development and implementation of Web-based solutions that help nonprofit maritime organizations enhance port and waterway efficiency, safety and security for their stakeholders.

Eligible PortVision CONNECT grant participants include harbor safety committees, trade associations, marine exchanges and other industry organizations that have a primarily maritime mission. Pending projects include gate pass portals that streamline terminal access, information portals for real-time data access, real-time resource scheduling and waterway alert systems.

The initiative is led by Jason Tieman, the company’s director of maritime operations.
