It also provides ocean coverage for 85% of containers shipped globally and 100% coverage of the Class I and Class II railroads in North America. Earlier this year project44 announced the industry’s first service level agreement (SLA), which ensures 90% of a shipper’s contracted full truckload carriers in North America and Europe go live within 30 days of commencing implementation.
Industry Recognition: project44 was recognized by SAP as Cloud Integration Partner of the Year for enabling global brands to build more agile supply chains. The winner was chosen based on recommendations from the SAP field, customer feedback, and performance indicators. project44 has placed second, behind only Amazon, on FreightWaves’ 2020 Freight Tech 25, a list of the most innovative companies across the freight industry.

Smiths Detection launches iCMORE algorithms for lithium batteries and dangerous goods for HI-SCAN 10080 XCT2.7.2020 11:00:00 CEST | Press release
Smiths Detection, a leading detection and security company, has launched iCMORE detection algorithms for lithium batteries and dangerous goods for use by its HI-SCAN 10080 XCT scanner, becoming its first explosive-detection system (EDS) to offer these options. The algorithms enhance the scanner’s detection capabilities by helping identify lithium batteries, flammable liquids and solids, and compressed and liquefied gasses, which can pose a risk should they ignite or explode. With iCMORE, Smiths Detection can now reliably and accurately detect potentially dangerous lithium batteries, alongside other dangerous goods, across both its conventional X-ray and its EDS technologies. The iCMORE lithium batteries and dangerous goods algorithms are complementary adaptions to existing screening technology. Although the screening of dangerous goods is not yet mandatory in hold-baggage and air-cargo screening, the increased level of safety for passengers, staff and assets is a key driver for the imp

Lee Morley, Chief Executive Officer, EUSA Pharma, said:“Since the start of the pandemic, a growing body of evidence has been published highlighting that COVID-19 associated ARDS may exhibit features of systemic hyperinflammation, resulting from excessive cytokine production – the so-called ‘cytokine storm’ – wi
