Historically the ports of Long beach and Los Angeles, during peak season, have experienced congestion related delays for shippers and consignees. Participation in GE’s Port Optimizer by customs brokers, such as Alba Wheels Up, may minimize congestion, and therefore make containers available earlier for prick and delivery. Supply chains face a complex set of market dynamics and emerging disruptive forces — globalization, outsourced manufacturing, intense competition, tighter margins, and market threats. All of this is against the backdrop of an economy where expectations for delivery are becoming shorter and more exacting. Ports, serving ~90% of global trade, are the center point of supply chains. Traditionally, supply chain operations consisted of multiple systems, each designed to measure and monitor singular aspects, for example ocean transit. There has not been the ability to consolidate and provide that “single pane of glass” that supply chains need to see how cargo is moving — holistically.
