Port Optimizer™

Port Optimizer

Increase throughput and improve efficiency with digital infrastructure, creating an accurate, on-time and reliable source of data for port stakeholders to better plan operations

Wabec Corp. logoTo keep cargo flowing efficiently through America's number one container port, the Port of Los Angeles and Wabtec Corporation in 2017 launched the Port Optimizer, a first-of-its-kind information portal designed to digitize maritime shipping data for cargo owners and supply chain stakeholders through secure, channeled access. Port Optimizer enhances supply chain performance through real-time, data-driven insights in a single portal.
Port Optimizer is a cloud-based solution that enables ports and the supply chain to operate more efficiently and helps cargo owners bring their goods to market in a more predictable and timely manner. Integrating data from across the port ecosystem, combining machine learning and deep domain expertise, it helps the port supply chain monitor and respond to dynamic conditions, align people and resources, and proactively communicate across functions-- enabling maximum port throughput and delivery performance. The result? Higher throughput. Increased asset utilization. Improved delivery performance.
The portal is a unique approach to demonstrate the benefits of digitizing maritime shipping data and making it available to cargo owners and supply chain stakeholders through secure, channeled access. The project enhances supply chain performance by delivering real-time, data-driven insights through a single portal to partners across the supply chain.
