 SHIPNEXTAlexander Varvarenko  Small Business Transportation Shipnext patented the process of moving the transportation industry from emails to a shipping platform. The process includes decrypting shipping data, cargo- and vessel schedules for the purpose of instant dynamic freight matching (cargo-to-ship and ship-to-cargo) and freight negotiations.
The patents cover USA, Europe, Japan, Singapore, and other countries.

With this Shipnext launched a shipping platform, that uses NLP, and machine-learning (AI-related technology) to facilitate users in finding the best freight solution for moving their cargo/freight using maritime (initially) and eventually road and air transportation.

Shipnext covers all types of trades regardless of the size, shape, quantity, type, or destination of the cargo.

This process of "uberizing" process is now in place for wet-bulk, dry-bulk, break-bulk, oversized, and containerized cargo.
Shipnext facilitates in being the best way of moving cargo overseas, based on freight (economic factors), time (timely delivery) or ecological impact (least damage to environment/CO2 produced per mt of cargo shipper).

Today Shipnext covers the whole of the international ocean-, sea- and river transportation. In the coming 1-year, we plan to add or integrate road and rail transport to cover and optimize the complete process of door-to-door transportation.

Shipnext today is a platform used by 3200+ users/companies worldwide and unites shippers, traders, forwarding and logistic companies, brokers, carrier, and transportation companies.
From a technological point of view, Shipnext is running both SaaS (software as a service) and MaaS (marketplace as a service) business models.

We are partners of Microsoft, members of the World Economic Forum, and participated in drafting their paper on the implementation of blockchain transportation and supply-chain, winners of numerous European and International prizes.

With this cooperation with the US Department of Energy, we seek to support and funding in helping us establish a full-time presence, in the US for the purpose of using our technology to optimize international and US-related transportation industry and achieve mid- and long-term economic and ecological goals.

 SailPlan Maritime Inc.Charlotte Runzel  Small Business Other Energy Technologies SailPlan is an emissions measurement company that provides real-time emissions data, which is vital for decarbonization strategies. For example, emissions data informs strategies to optimize the operations and improve the efficiency of vessels such as engine temperature, vessel speed, fuel use, and more. SailPlan can also alert of maintenance and other issues such as methane leaks that cause heightened emissions, so the issue can be addressed immediately, rather than allowing for maintenance issues to get worse and emissions increases to go unaddressed. SailPlan brings a common-sense and practical perspective that supports industry while reaching decarbonization goals.

Measuring emissions is not only more accurate than calculating, but calculating emissions does not give insight into the existing operational inefficiencies of a vessel that can be improved. Measurement of emissions in real-time allows for entities to pinpoint the highest-emitting infrastructure, decide where to focus low-carbon investments, ensure the best return on investment, and maximize emissions reductions. SailPlan was initially created to support the maritime industry, but can be expanded to measure the emissions of rail and road transportation systems as well.

 Penn State UniversityLorri Bennett  Academic Transportation Penn State University is a current performer for ARPA E on the LOCOMOTIVES project (LOwering CO2: Models to
Optimize Train Infrastructure, Vehicles, and Energy Storage). We have developed the SCORE (Synthesis of Consists as Rolling Energy Micro-Grids) toolset which allows industry and OEMs to evaluate the cost and GHG emissions for alternative locomotive technologies on North American rail routes. The SCORE toolset consists of a unique Energy Longitudinal Train Dynamics model that determines optimal powering policies for alternative energy locomotive technologies on selected routes in the North America. It takes advantage of regenerative technologies on the route, reducing cost and GHG emissions for a given train consist. This toolset also data for the railroad lines and nodes captured in the North Atlantic Rail line and Node network, calculating route gradient, elevation and distances. for each line for proper analysist. The SCORE can be accessed here

In addition to our excellent success on the ARPA-E locomotives efforts Penn State has a world class Supply Chain and Information Systems department, a Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Research facility, the world class Larson Pennsylvania Transportation Institute, the Battery Energy Storage and technology Center, and the Railroad transportation Engineering program.

We are looking for software commercialization companies and freight management companies to team with for this proposal.

 GlidKevin A. Damoa  Small Business Transportation We are mobility company focused on deploying an intermodal product that bridges the gap between rail and road, while fulfilling both modes of transportation at a significantly reduced or completely decarbonized methodology. We are in the process of developing the he only patented-pending solution that allows you to move a fully loaded semi-trailer from the road to the rails without diesel or a driver (autonomously). Our goal is support the world by revisioning traditional on ground intermodal transportation.

Our Glīders are designed to carry a fully loaded semi-trailer (60,000-80,000 lbs) without any modifications to the trailer, on paved asphalt, cement, gravel or dirt and then transition to the rails by deploying full-sized rail wheels. While Glīd is focused on moving dry van or reefer semi trailers (35-47% of the total semi trailer market), Glīd will also be able to carry intermodal shipping containers. Once on the rails, our Glīders will be able to travel at train speeds of up to 70-80 Mph.

Our primary goals are to produced a streamlined transportation process, while eliminating access waste (to include cargo processing (i.e. cross docking, transloading, etc.), automate resource intense operations, and increase logistics program safety, while delivering a quality product that reduces life cycle cost, increases profitability to the end user at the lowest carbon footprint.

Our team consist of individuals with over 100 years of combined knowledge and experience in all modes of transportation from industries that include military and defense, aerospace, micromobility, electrification, aerospace, aviation, automotive, software, and energy. We are based out of Utah and California. The company is in it's first year of business.

We are excited to join and contribute on a team dedicated to improving the intermodal eco-system for a better tomorrow now.

 Oklahoma State UniversityBalabhaskar Balasundaram  Academic Transportation I have methodology expertise in network optimization, specifically in integer linear programming (ILP) techniques and network flow algorithms (shortest paths, min cost flows, max flows). In the recent past I have worked on ILP methods to design multi-path, disruption-tolerant, fault-tolerant network topologies, sometimes called resilient or survivable network design problems, in deterministic and stochastic settings. I also worked (10+ years ago) with a colleague on freight movement modeling in the state of Oklahoma that was funded by the Oklahoma Transportation Center. I am interested in this topic as a challenging application of optimization and operations research. Although I possess significant methodological training and expertise in mathematical optimization, I lack the domain expertise in inter-modal transportation systems and energy systems. I think I can be a strong collaborator for someone who is a domain expert with the overall vision and is familiar with the aforementioned areas but not necessarily possess the optimization expertise.

Broadly, my past research has been sponsored by the NSF, DoE, AFOSR, and industry. Publications coauthored with my students and other collaborators have appeared in flagship journals in my field including Operations Research, INFORMS Journal on Computing, INFORMS Journal on Optimization, and INFORMS Journal on Applied Analytics, among others. I serve on the editorial boards of Networks (Wiley) and Journal of Global Optimization (Springer). My website ( includes preprints of recent work and my current CV.
