A collaboration between GE Transportation and project44 focused on integrating project44’s SaaS platform to augment and link GE’s railroad and shipper product suites was announced yesterday. 

Through this collaboration, the companies said GE Transportation is working towards utilizing a more predictable and reliable port-to-door supply chain ecosystem by connecting transportation data from railroad networks, yards, intermodal terminals and maritime ports into a single transportation management workflow.

And they added that integrating project44’s API-first connectivity would extend GE Transportation’s ability to deliver the most visible and reliable supply chain possible. With this combined solution, they said transportation providers, logistics providers and cargo owners would have access to standardized and real-time data to help increase the capacity and fluidity of their entire supply chain. Supply chain providers across the ecosystem (Railroads, cargo owners, logistics providers, etc.) can monitor and respond to dynamic conditions, better use and align resources, and proactively communicate and collaborate, they also noted.

“True port-to-door visibility goes beyond just tracking,” said Jennifer Schopfer, Vice President and General Manager of GE Transportation Transport Logistics, in a statement. “The smartest and most efficient supply chains have full transparency across modes and nodes into pricing, routes, pickups, tracking, documents and payments – and that is exactly what project44 is helping us to achieve. This integration allows users to make critical transportation decisions faster, because they have access to the right information, at the right time regardless of where the data originates.”

 

GE and project44’s collaboration is currently in effect at the Port of Long Beach through GE’ cloud-based Port Optimizer offering, which enhances supply chain performance and predictability by delivering real time data-driven insights through a single portal to stakeholders across the supply chain. Integrating data from across the port, combining machine learning and deep domain expertise, it helps the supply chain monitor and respond to dynamic conditions, align people and resources, and proactively communicate across functions – enabling maximum port cargo flow and delivery performance.  The companies are presenting findings on this collaboration at the TPM conference in Long Beach this week.

 

GE, in conjunction with project44, and POLB, the nation’s second largest container port, are working to improve cargo flow at the port in the form of a pilot program focusing on increasing visibility, enhancing real-time decision making, and optimizing cargo movements through the port.
