Port of Long Beach Battles Traffic Congestion with New Freight Mobility Application Technology

The Port of Long Beach began a testing phase Wednesday with its Freight Advanced Traveler Information System (FRATIS) Demonstration Project, which aims to improve freight traffic and communications, air quality, and boost container volume in participating test ports within the next 20 years.
Funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA), the FRATIS Demonstration Projects has partnered with public and private organizations to streamline the information flow between trucks and port terminals using Bluetooth proximity-reading technology.
