The Port of Montreal continues to fully serve importers and exporters and the Montreal Port Authority (MPA) is proud to be associated with a project that will make it possible to use artificial intelligence for the handling of goods deemed "critical" by government authorities during this health crisis.

"With a data management and processing system already well established, we are able to rapidly deploy additional solutions that can optimize the process of unloading and reduce container dwell time to less than 12 hours for critical cargo, in order to ensure continuity of care and services offered to the population, in the context of COVID-19," said Daniel Dagenais, Vice-President, Operations at the MPA.

The project is driven by CargoM, the Logistics and Transportation Metropolitan Cluster of Montreal, developed by IVADO Labs, which which specializes in AI solutions development, and funded by the Government of Canada through Supply Chain and Logistics Excellence AI (Scale AI), an investment and innovation hub that accelerates the rapid adoption and integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and contributes to the development of a world-class Canadian AI ecosystem.
