Digital tool enhances container visibility at port of Long Beach

The Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners received an update about the capabilities of the Supply Chain Information Highway, a robust digital tool created to maximise the efficiency and visibility of cargo shipments moving through the major Californian port.

Now in its second phase of development, the Supply Chain Information Highway is undergoing field testing to refine its ability to deliver aggregated data that will help logistics partners to better plan, schedule and track cargo movement in real time from origin to destination, according to the port's announcement.

All the six marine terminals at the port of Long Beach are using a beta version of the Supply Chain Information Highway.

Τhere are three new features that were introduced at a public meeting of the Board of Harbor Commissioners on 24 July.

The first one is a dashboard designed for beneficial cargo owners that allows customers to access information about the location of their containers within the Port complex, highlighting which containers have arrived, which are undergoing inspection by the US Customs and Border Protection, and which are ready to be picked up.

The second feature is a public “track and trace” page enabling users to access the most up-to-date information about the status of containers moving through the port of Long Beach.

The third one is a public port operations dashboard that contains much of the information currently found in the port’s Weekly Advance Volume Estimate, or WAVE Report, including projected container volumes, vessel calls and turn times for trucks accessing marine terminals.

The Supply Chain Information Highway is anticipated to be compatible with similar data-sharing platforms across the maritime logistics industry.

"The Supply Chain Information Highway maximizes efficiency by enabling our industry partners to schedule and plan for the arrival of cargo through our Port, as well as expedite deliveries to consumers and retailers," said Long Beach Harbor Commission president, Sharon L. Weissman.
