The Port of Los Angeles and GE Transportation have worked in partnership since last November to develop a first-of-its-kind digital solution for shipping data that is available to cargo owners and supply chain operators. The solution was launched on a pilot basis in mid-May at APM Terminals with Maersk Shipping Line and Mediterranean Shipping Company, along with participation from retailers such as Home Depot and Lowe’s, among others.
“By working together to share data in a secure and controlled environment, we have already seen the potential for tremendous benefits for importers, truckers, shipping lines, terminals, chassis providers and the entire supply chain,” said Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Gene Seroka. “Greater insight leads to better planning and lower cost, all of which have a direct impact on every company that is involved in international trade.”
