September 2005. The United States Coast Guard, Office of Great Lakes Pilotage, has contracted with Klein to implement the KleinPilot Dispatch and Billing System for U.S. pilotage activities on the Great Lakes. The Office of Great Lakes Pilotage supervises the activities of the three U.S. pilotage associations providing service on the Great Lakes.

The system will allow for more efficient planning and tracking of pilotage jobs and recording of related data for billing and business analysis purposes. It will also allow for more efficient communications with the Canadian Great Lakes Pilot Authority who have managed their pilot dispatch and billing with a Klein system since 1998.
