GE Port Information Portal

Person using Port Information PortalTo keep cargo flowing efficiently through America’s Port®, the Port of Los Angeles and GE Transportation have launched a first-of-its-kind Port Information Portal, a unique approach to demonstrate the benefits of digitizing maritime shipping data and making it available to cargo owners and supply chain operators through secure, channeled access. The digital platform provides stakeholders with greater line-of-sight and planning capabilities to more effectively service ultra-large container vessels. Improved data flow is a critical first step toward enabling next-level collaboration and coordination among the many stakeholders involved in the conveyance of waterborne cargo containers, and will enhance supply chain performance by delivering fast, data-driven insights through a single portal to partners across the supply chain.

The ultimate goal of the Port Information Portal is to improve data-flow between cargo owners, shipping lines and other stakeholders so that port and terminal operators have an extended window of time to track inbound cargo to more effectively service vessels, optimize cargo movement and improve the predictability and reliability of the supply chain.

Port of Los Angeles and GE Transportation Partner to Digitize Shipping

With consumer spending on the rise, U.S. businesses need greater reliability and visibility from the supply chain to maintain their edge in an increasingly competitive marketplace. Given that 90 percent of global trade moves on the ocean, seaports are critical nodes of the supply chain. However, today’s major ports face the growing challenge of serving a new generation of massive container ships and the complexity of handling cargo carried by vessel-sharing alliances -- constantly shifting arrangements between cargo ship operators where they share space on ships as a cost-saving strategy. To keep cargo flowing efficiently through America’s largest container port, the Port of Los Angeles and GE Transportation are partnering to pilot a first-of-its-kind port information portal, a unique approach to demonstrate the benefits of digitizing maritime shipping data and making it available to cargo owners and supply chain operators through secure, channeled access.
