The Port of Oakland has made truck turn time data available on its web portal.
The Port of Oakland has respond to calls for greater supply chain visibility by adding harbour trucker turn times to its “Oakland Portal”, port community system.
The port is posting “transaction times” for truckers at its four container terminals (SSA Marine’s Oakland International Container Terminal, Everport Terminal Services, TraPac, and Matson) on its web portal. The transaction time measures processing time inside the terminal in the most recent 30 minute period, excluding any waiting time outside terminal gates.
“This is a big step forward on our digital platform,” said Port of Oakland Maritime Director John Driscoll. “It helps take the guesswork out of scheduling for truckers, dispatchers and the owners of cargo that moves through Oakland.”
The Port said turn times would improve cargo flow by: Signalling to truck drivers or dispatchers if terminals are backed up; Providing cargo owners a better sense of when to expect deliveries; and Highlighting potential bottlenecks at marine terminals.
The Oakland Portal, which is powered by eModal from Advent Intermodal Solutions and went live last May, aggregates shipping information from every marine terminal in the Oakland Harbour.
