While the industry is poised to exert even greater impact on the overall economy, as Ports and container ship operators prepare for high volume cargo movement generated by the arrival of post-Panamax ships, it is important to recognize the fact that the backbone of this trillion-dollar industry remains the dedicated workers of the International Longshoremen's Association (ILA), the largest union of maritime workers in North America. Since its founding in 1892, the ILA brotherhood has keep Ports humming on the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts, Great Lakes, major U.S. rivers, Puerto Rico and Eastern Canada.
But even as the 21st century unfolds, the majority of ILA Locals continue to try to meet the demands of the modern maritime industry while employing the same scheduling, dispatching and communication tools they used decades ago. Harbor Watch provides solutions to antiquated dispatching methods, complicated hiring rules and obsolete communication that continually frustrate ILA members and officials striving to keep pace with the ever-changing maritime industry. Simply put, Harbor Watch brings order and organization to the ILA workflow processes.
DDI applications have had zero down time since the launch of their first scheduling application in 2012. More importantly, DDI continues to enhance, improve and expand the functionality of its applications... to the point where an ILA official called Harbor Watch “the gold standard” of the industry.
