California container ports sign data system development agreement

Five box ports in California signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in Sacramento, the capital city of the US state of California, to begin the California Port Data Partnership with state and federal partners.

The ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach, Oakland, Hueneme and San Diego, inked the MoU which defines a collective agreement among the five ports to develop digital and cloud-based data interoperability with the common objective of enabling increased freight system resilience, commodities movement efficiency, emissions reduction, and economic competitiveness.

“The MoU is a first-of-its-kind agreement on data system development among containerized ports and outlines eleven areas of cooperation, ranging from developing data definitions to ensuring equitable access to data for users,” stated Dee Dee Myers, GO-Biz director and senior advisor to California Governor Gavin Newsom.

The agreement will serve as the foundation for collaboration for the US$27 million grant funds from the California Governor's Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) for port data system development and emerging data aggregation and analysis efforts that support freight and supply chain resiliency.

The funding was included in the Budget Act of 2022, which contained a first-ever multibillion-dollar state commitment to the goods transportation and supply chain sectors of California.

“Sharing vital shipping data will reduce delays and aid the entire goods movement industry from the docks to doorsteps,” commented Mario Cordero, Port of Long Beach executive director.
