PORT OF LOS ANGELES ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF NEW ‘CONTROL TOWER’ DATA TOOL

Home News PORT OF LOS ANGELES ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF NEW ‘CONTROL TOWER’ DATA TOOL

Service provides real-time truck turn-time data and other metrics to boost advanced planning capabilities for Port stakeholders

As part of its ongoing push to further digitalize the port supply chain and improve cargo efficiency and fluidity, the Port of Los Angeles has introduced a new “Control Tower” data tool—the third such instrument introduced by the nation’s busiest trade gateway in less than six months. The Control Tower offers real-time views of truck turn times, as well as other truck capacity management information, to help cargo owners, truckers and other supply chain stakeholders better predict and plan cargo flows.

Phase one of the Control Tower launch provides users current snapshots of turn times at all of the Port’s cargo terminals, updated continuously with GeoStamp data and broken down by historical daily and monthly averages. The Control Tower also provides recent and future trending volume data, as well as historical volumes and trends dating back to 2017, segmented by mode and specificity.

Developed in partnership with Wabtec, the Control Tower is being rolled out in phases, with more features added throughout 2021 based on user feedback and supply chain developments. Port stakeholders can sign up to use the Control Tower at Tower.Portoptimizer.com.
