LA and GE Transportation project gets underway

GE Transportation and the Port of Los Angeles have launched the first pilot projects under their “a first-of-its-kind digital solution to keep cargo flowing efficiently through America’s largest container port”.

The project, initially announced last November, saw GE awarded a contract worth up to US$1.3M to develop a new portal that combines data from US Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the Department of Homeland Security AMS system, manifest data (including original BOLs) from shipping lines and Piers historical data.  The idea is that the whole process of moving containers through the port of Los Angeles could be improved if parties in the supply chain can have better access to data about the containers on a vessel.

The “digital solution” has now launched on a pilot basis at APM Terminals with Maersk Shipping Line and Mediterranean Shipping Company. “Major retailers such as The Home Depot and Lowe’s, among others, are participating in the project. It promises to provide not only advanced visibility but a collaborative view of data for all the stakeholders across the ocean supply chain. Initial performance results from the pilot are expected in July,” the port said in a statement.
 
“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.”
 
With the new portal the port expects the advance notice key supply chain participants on the landside (including BCO’s, truckers and railroads) have on containers coming into the port will improve from 48 hours or less to two weeks. 
 
“Our work with the Port of Los Angeles has the potential to transform how ports across the country, and even the world, operate, driving productivity from ship to shore and from the terminal to the customer,” said Jamie Miller, GE Transportation president and CEO. “It’s an honour to partner together on a game-changing solution that could have industry wide implications.”
