LPS was established to work on crucial issues relating to safe operations and security of marine ports, airports, and the infrastructure networks surrounding them.
With ever-increasing traffic throughout the nation’s marine ports and today’s heightened concerns over homeland threats, the safety and security of our ports—as well as the roads, bridges, tunnels, and coastal waters that surround them—are crucial to the smooth operation of the nation’s supply chain and for our peace of mind.
LPS is located between port complexes of New York/New Jersey and Philadelphia. Annually, millions of containers and bulk materials we use every day pass through these ports. Delaware River ports have one of the largest oil and petro-chemical infrastructure systems in the nation. These ports serve most of the eastern and midwestern United States by bringing oil, gasoline, and chemicals to businesses and consumers.
In addition to commercial maritime traffic, the New York/New Jersey port complex has major passenger and ferry traffic, all of which bear major safety and security concerns.
LPS is a cooperative venture between Rutgers’ CAIT and DIMACS.
