capturePort of Los Angeles partners with GE Transportation for Pilot Program

The Port of Los Angeles launched its first-of its-kind digital portal, which is designed to deliver fast, data-driven insights to enhance maritime supply chain performance and better serve ultra-large container vessels.

The Port of LA and GE Transportation have partnered to pilot this portal for two months, which will digitize maritime shipping data and make it available to cargo owners through secure access.  The digital platform will provide stakeholders with greater visibility in order to assist in planning and service extra-large container vessels.

The cargo data used in the pilot will include filtered information from CBP’s Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) System.

The Port of Los Angeles posted, “Ultimately, the 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 and cargo stakeholders manually tested this advance exchange of data during the largest-ever container ship call last December.
