Data enhancement AI platform and framework receive International Association of Ports and Harbors Digitization Sustainability Award

SAN MARCOS, Calif. – November 16, 2023 – Everstream Analytics, the leading global provider of supply chain predictive insights and risk analytics, has been recognized as an innovation partner to the Halifax Port Authority (HPA) in the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) Digitization Sustainability Award. This prestigious award acknowledges Everstream’s crucial contribution to the Data Enhancement Framework 2 (DEF2) project, led by HPA, which focuses on accelerating port digitization and sustainability.

The IAPH Sustainability Award recognizes ports that excel in promoting sustainable practices across various supply chain functions. Everstream Analytics’ recognition as an innovation partner solidifies its position as a technology leader, driving sustainable initiatives and delivering value to businesses worldwide.

The collaboration between HPA, Everstream Analytics, PSA Global , Port Saint John, Canada’s Ocean Supercluster, and Sentient Hubs resulted in the design of an AI platform and operating framework. This platform offers near real-time emissions monitoring, enabling effective strategies for CO2e mitigation. By analyzing data from cargo handling, transport, and operations, the technology provides an accurate and interoperable system, generating a comprehensive assessment of CO2e intensity associated with port operations.

“We are proud to be recognized for our efforts to reduce carbon emissions and create a more sustainable port,” said Captain Allan Gray, President and CEO of Halifax Port Authority. “The Data Enhancement Framework is a great example of how collaboration and innovation can help us achieve our sustainability goals.”

“”We are thrilled to partner with HPA to transform port operations and promote environmentally sustainable practices,” said Julie Gerdeman, CEO of Everstream Analytics. “What truly sets this initiative apart is the inspiring collaboration demonstrated by the project team, proving that collective action and innovation can advance business growth while driving change for the greater good.”
