Port authorities and terminal operators are endeavoring like never before to become enablers of cargo flow through data initiatives that seek to overcome the traditional roadblocks in containerized supply chains. These initiatives can take many forms, from container availability platforms to modern versions of port community systems and genuine SaaS systems that are sold to other ports. This session will examine the value of these initiatives on an individual basis and how realistic it might be to enable cargo owners and their logistics providers to tap into data across multiple ports.
