Over in Savannah, Plug and Play is making waves in the last-mile delivery and supply chain space. It just announced its first cohort for the accelerator program out of its Savannah office. Awake.AI is one of the selected start-ups joining the cohort.
The program is running with The Savannah Logistics Innovation Center (SLIC), a public-private partnership led by Georgia Southern University and the Savannah Economic Development Authority.
The accelerator is in partnership with Foram, the Georgia Department of Transportation, Georgia Ports Authority, Georgia Power, Georgia Southern University, Maersk, the Savannah Economic Development Authority, Savannah State University and Savannah Technical College.
“Modern ports like Savannah are very efficient at the mechanics and information systems involved in moving cargo on-and-off terminal,” said Griff Lynch, Executive Director of the Georgia Ports Authority, in a written statement. “We are thrilled to see where the accelerator program takes this inaugural group of startups and the ways in which our systems and processes improve because of the solutions they discover.”
