A new pilot project at the Port of Long Beach will see stakeholders use GE Transportation’s Port Optimizer software to access data that will allow them to move cargo containers more efficiently and support advance planning.

Port Optimizer is designed to offer improved advance notice of cargo arrival, coordinated with data on the availability of equipment, labour and other resources needed for terminal operators and other stakeholders to move cargo through the supply chain.

“We welcome the opportunity to have this exciting technology demonstrated here in our Port,” said Port of Long Beach executive director Mario Cordero. “We are always searching for new means toward improving operational efficiencies in the supply chain as it moves through this port complex. We look forward to observing Port Optimizer in action.”

The software, debuted at the Port of Los Angeles last year, will be used at Long Beach Container Terminal, Total Terminals International and International Transportation Service over the next two months and is expected to help the port prepare for future cargo growth.

Jen Schopfer, VP, general manager of transport logistics for GE Transportation, explained: “Not only will GE be piloting our product’s core capabilities around advanced visibility and planning, but we are also launching some Long Beach-centric functionality – marine terminal operator and landside transportation integrations for better planning and gate transactions, including MatchBack Systems for dual transactions, and advanced/predictive analytics addressing truck congestion using GeoStamp’s IOT platform.”
