Freight Haulers Getting Quantum Computing Optimization Solutions From Wyoming Firm
Tech Company Uses Quantum Computers To Help Shipping And Trucking Industries
+ Jackson, Wyoming-based SavantX also recently formed a partnership with D-Wave Systems Inc., a Burnaby, Canada-based company that develops and offers quantum computing systems, software and services.
With D-Wave’s quantum services, SavantX has begun offering its Hyper Optimization Nodal Efficiency (HONE) technology to solve optimization problems to customers such as the Pier 300 container terminal project at the Port of Los Angeles.
+ The project, which began last year, is a partnership between SavantX, Blume Global and Fenix Marine Services. The project’s goal is to optimize logistics on the spacing and placement of shipping containers to better integrate with inbound trucks and freight trains. The Pier 300 site handles 1.2 million container lifts per year.
+ Heinbockel added, “We’re very excited about the Pier 300 project, because HONE is a generalized technology. Then it’s a question of what other systems can we optimize? In all modes of transportation, the winners are going to be those that can minimize the energy in the systems; energy reduction. That’s all about optimization.”
