...we told you that by 2020, there will be 34 billion devices connected to the Internet of Things (meaning more than four IoT devices for every person on the planet)?  That by 2035, global highway usage (and truck shipping) is expected to double? That 70 percent of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050, stretching existing systems as demand rises?

Our world is faster and more connected than ever – yet the average Londoner spends 74 hours waiting in traffic jams and only 51 percent of U.S. households reported they could get to a grocery store using public transportation, according to ASCE’s 2017 Infrastructure Report Card on Transit.

Because we believe the best place for a “jam” is on a PB&J sandwich — not on our transport networks or systems — we get excited to solve our world’s connectivity challenges: tunnels to dig, tracks to lay, roads and bridges to build, airports and seaports to modernize and collaboration technologies to conceptualize. And since we’re also neighbors and community members, we thrive on the larger purpose behind what we build – linking communities around the world and advancing economic and social flexibility with digital, community and transit mobility solutions that connect people, places, assets and pursuits.

What if we showed you how connected vehicle technologies might reduce traffic and air congestion along a crucial 18-mile connection in the global trade network? How digital intelligence and automation helped North America’s top container port achieve record-setting cargo operations. And what if we showed you how a first-of-its-kind microgrid is reliably powering public transportation even during critical times when the regional electric grid may be compromised due to storms or other events?
