South Carolina port to go with $17.3 mil Zebra terminal system
The creaking electronic backbone of the state's port system will be replaced under a project set to begin next year.
The S.C. State Ports Authority board voted Tuesday to spend $17.3 million to replace the information-technology system that has helped the agency manage its terminals for 30 years.
The authority's board approved a contract Tuesday for up to $8.35 million with Zebra Enterprise Solutions to install the new operating system. Also, the SPA will spend up to $8.95 million on other project needs.
Work will begin in February, and it will involve an outreach program for maritime businesses that will be affected by the changes.
