Professionals from all levels of the commercial marine transportation industry, from CEOs to deckhands, gathered in St. Louis last month for the Inland Marine Expo (IMX). IMX is the annual trade show for highlighting the latest equipment, services, trends and issues that are relevant to the transportation of goods along U.S. inland and intracoastal waterways. We at GDS were excited to be a part of IMX 2019.
On July 8, the U.S. Coast Guard issued an official “Marine Safety Alert” warning operators of commercial vessels of cybersecurity risks. The alert came in response to a February 2019 incident involving a vessel bound for the Port of New York and New Jersey.
