- D-Wave is the world’s first commercial supplier of quantum computing solutions
- D-Wave’s customers have built quantum and quantum-hybrid applications in areas such as resource scheduling, mobility, logistics, drug discovery, portfolio optimization, manufacturing processes, and more
- Using D-Wave’s annealing quantum computing solutions, SavantX was able to increase deliveries per crane per day by 60% at Pier 300 at the Port of Los Angeles, one of the nation’s largest ports
D-Wave Quantum (NYSE: QBTS), a leader in quantum computing systems, software, and services, is helping customers solve highly complex business problems today, helping to drive operational efficiencies, reduce costs, and increase revenue. By harnessing the power of its proprietary annealing quantum computing technology, D-Wave is able to address challenging optimization problems across a wide range of use cases, including logistics, drug discovery, resource scheduling, manufacturing processes and financial modeling.
The company’s pursuit of practical quantum computing has resulted in its technology being used by some of today’s most advanced enterprises worldwide, including numerous Forbes Global 2000 companies. In a September 11, 2023 interview with Bloomberg Technology, D-Wave CEO Alan Baratz said that he believes quantum technology “is going to fundamentally transform the way businesses operate and have a huge impact on the social and economic environment,” (https://ibn.fm/GG7zI).
One area where D-Wave’s quantum computing solutions have been applied successfully is logistics optimization at Pier 300 at the Port of Los Angeles, the nation’s largest facility for handling shipborne cargo. In 2021, the equivalent of more than 10 million 20-foot container units were transferred from ships to trucks to take them to their inland destinations. At a time when supply chains face increased disruptions, efficiency is key to ensuring the movement of goods keeps pace. Quantum computing can offer an important approach for identifying solutions to complex logistical problems like those faced by the port.
SavantX used D-Wave’s quantum technology to explore efficiencies at Pier 300, one of the port’s largest terminals, creating an application that demonstrated efficiency gains by optimizing equipment usage and personnel while ensuring that containers were cleared from the port as quickly as possible. SavantX saw a 60% increase in deliveries per crane per day using quantum computing for logistical optimization. (https://ibn.fm/hTOHg).
“Not all problems are optimization problems, but for the ones that are, there’s a huge opportunity to bring value into the equation,” said Ed Heinbockel, CEO of SavantX. “We’ve tasted the power of quantum, and we’re very, very excited about it.”
