GRID Logistics Inc.

From Sylvia Plummer, September 5, 2014

This message is from Rick Risemberg, GRID Logistics Inc:

As many of you know, I have spent the last four years working working with a diverse team of innovators on an advanced harbor freight handling project, one whose ultimate goal is to put as many cargo containers as possible onto railroad trains for transport—including our own patent-pending all-electric underground shuttle train for local deliveries here in Los Angeles. Most of this freight now goes onto trucks that dominate freeways, jam surface streets, pollute the air, depress public health (especially in poorer communities), and wreak havoc on the roads. GRID would be a big step to the cleaner, healthier, more human-scaled, and more prosperous world that we all dream of.

GRID is entered in a competition for one of ten LA2050 grants of $100,000 each. This grant would let us concentrate on funding the CSUN feasibility study we need to convince venture capitalists that GRID would provide a good return on their investments, and so let us move towards actual design and construction. Details on how the grant would help, and on GRID itself, are on our project page at LA2050's GOOD.is website, where you and your friends can vote for GRID to be one of the ten grant winners. Simply go to the URL below and place your vote! It's easy and quick, and could kickstart the future of Southern California by helping GRID move that much closer to becoming a reality. (It does require creating an account, but LA2050 has nothing to sell and will not spam you.)
