California Governor Gavin Newsom has announced a $30 million investment to create a shared data system between six major seaports in the state, including the Ports of Long Beach, Los Angeles, Oakland, San Diego, Hueneme, and another. The shared system called the California Port Data Partnership aims to develop computerized and cloud-based data interoperability to support improved freight system resilience, goods movement efficiency, emissions reduction, and economic competitiveness. The seaports will jointly work on developing the interoperability of their digital systems and sharing shipping data to reduce delays and improve efficiency in cargo movement. The partnership’s primary goal is to maximize efficiency and visibility in cargo movement throughout the supply chain, from docks to doorsteps. The Port of Long Beach will use the funding to enhance its Supply Chain Information Highway, a digital solution designed to maximize efficiency and visibility in cargo movement. The partnership aims to reduce delays and aid the entire goods movement industry by sharing vital shipping data.
