Port of Los Angeles and GE's 'digitized maritime shipping' partnership launches

GE Transportation has issued a news release on the project, excerpted here:

Last November, GE Transportation and the Port of Los Angeles announced a partnership to develop a first-of-its-kind digital solution to keep cargo flowing efficiently through America’s largest container port. Since, the partners have been working together to build a platform that digitizes maritime shipping data and makes it available to cargo owners and supply chain operators through secure, channeled access.

“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.

As Infrastructure Week begins nationwide, the digital solution has 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. Initial performance results from the pilot are expected in July.
