JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Airports and seaports play critical roles in a thriving global economy and Motorola’s wireless solutions help improve operational efficiency while delivering better information, leading to better decisions and better outcomes. This week, Motorola Solutions’ Ed Merkle and Bill Cusack will be participating in panel discussions on mobility and technology issues in port operations at the American Association of Port Authorities’ 2013 Port Technology Seminar in Jacksonville, FL.

Motorola offers a Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) solution through multiple partners on both the Motorola MC75A as well as the Psion Workabout Pro device. Motorola will be working at the seminar with idSoftware which provides the VisCheck™ and SecureGate Ports™ solutions for TWIC validation.
