Port of Los Angeles – “Digital Supply Chain Information Portal” (Click here for full report)

To keep cargo flowing efficiently through America’s largest container port, the Port of Los Angeles and GE Transportation partnered to pilot a visionary port information portal, a unique approach to demonstrate the benefits of digitizing maritime shipping data and making it available to cargo owners and supply chain operators through secure, channeled access.  The Portal aspired to acquire and present supply chain data through channeled access which discerned between users and provided only the information relevant to that supply chain partner while at the same time maintaining proprietary interests and necessary security safeguards.
