Industry Database

GE Transportation and the Port of Long Beach have partnered to launch a data-sharing project to boost visibility, real-time decision-making and cargo flow through multiple POLB terminals.

GE Transportation’s ‘Port Optimizer’ cloud-based software solution is designed to enhance supply chain performance and predictability by delivering real time data-driven insights through a single portal to stakeholders across the supply chain. It enables stakeholders to make scheduling, planning and payment decisions prior to cargo arrival, as well as reduce delays during each handoff between nodes in the supply chain.

Volume management

“We experienced record volumes last year, with an 11 percent increase to 7.54 million twenty-foot equivalent units, making 2017 our busiest year ever,” said Mario Cordero, executive director of the Port of Long Beach. “This partnership with GE is providing an important trial for us as cargo and competition grow. We need new and innovative ways to ensure our customers can move their containers from water to land quickly, reliably and at a cost that makes sense for their business.”

Port Optimizer will be implemented at terminals including Total Terminals International and Long Beach Container Terminal for a two to three-month pilot.

The software was piloted at the Port of Los Angeles, where it is helping to increase visibility of incoming cargo from two days to two weeks.
