Port of Long Beach launches data-sharing project

The Port of Long Beach announced that it is launching a pilot program with GE Transportation to increase visibility, enhance real-time decision-making and optimize cargo movement through the Port.

Building on the success of its pilot with the Port of Los Angeles, where the solution is helping to increase visibility of incoming cargo from two days to two weeks, GE Transportation, a division of the General Electric Company, will implement the Port Optimizer solution at marine terminals including Total Terminals International and Long Beach Container Terminal for a two- to three-month pilot.

Port Optimizer is a cloud-based software that enhances supply chain performance and predictability by delivering real time data-driven insights through a single portal to stakeholders across the supply chain.

Integrating data from across the port, combining machine learning and deep domain expertise, it helps the supply chain monitor and respond to dynamic conditions, align people and resources, and proactively communicate across functions - enabling maximum port cargo flow and delivery performance.
