International Longshoremen & Warehousemen Union (ILWU) believe that unionizing is the key to achieving economic security and a peaceful world. The first longshore unions were established in the 19th century on the West Coast. These localized non-profit labor associations are affiliated with an international labor association.

ILWU would annually update their GP software but saw little improvement between updates. ILWU Local 13 needed an advanced, updatable, and more efficient solution that could keep up with their growing organization. This is where Stellar One & SAP stepped in.
