RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Port Authority is joining an effort to help industry and government agencies change how they do business.

 
The agency is joining the Commonwealth Center for Advanced Logistics Systems. The center focuses on streamlining and strengthening operations and improving products and services.
 
The university partners for the new center include Longwood University, the University of Virginia, Virginia Commonwealth University and Virginia State University. The first industry members include Prince George-based Logistics Management Resources and McLean-based LMI.
 
Membership fees, contracts and federal and state grants will fund the research and development activities.
 
Officials say the Virginia Port Authority brings a large, physical logistics component to the center with its port facilities, advanced technology and automated supply chain systems.
