Structured Cabling for a National Port Authority
As the fifth largest container port in the nation, this Port Authority is a vital trade resource for the United States, moving over three million, twenty-foot equivalent units of cargo for its customers every year.
To increase efficiency and total operational throughput, the Port Authority needed a new communications infrastructure at two of its terminals to support the automation of advance stacking equipment.
This work needed to be done with minimal disruption of day-to-day port operations, as every minute they are not operating costs hundreds of thousands of dollars.
VectorUSA designed and built a redundant and resilient fiber-optic backbone for complex network communication at two of the Port Authority sites.
One site is a 567-acre container terminal with six 50’ deep berths and 14 Super Post Panamax ship-to-shore cranes, and 18,000 feet of on-dock rail operations.
The other is a 291-acre container terminal with four 50’ deep berths and 12 Super Post Panamax ship-to-shore cranes and 20,000 feet of on-dock rail operations.
Upon completing this project, over 100 miles of fiber was installed at both sites.
VectorUSA helped our Client implement advanced container-handling equipment to reduce operating costs, increase throughput and decrease their environmental impact.
With these improvements, the Port Authority is positioned to serve the country for years to come. They are cleaner, more efficient, more competitive, and ready to keep pace with the booming cargo industry.
Working closely with VectorUSA, our Client was able to integrate this new solution while maintaining operations and keeping the U.S. economy moving.
