OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, the Port of Oakland took an important step towards enhancing real-time data collection to optimize trucking operations by announcing a new partnership with QuayChain Technologies (pronounced key-chain), which will bring a new source of timely and accurate street data to help the Port of Oakland provide key metrics to stakeholders
Having timely, accurate data puts Oakland in a leadership role. According to Bryan Brandes, the Port of Oakland’s Director of Maritime, “Our goal has been for the Port to be one of the first organizations piloting a data transparency portal to make sure people know where their cargo is.”
“We believe that this street data from QuayChain will be at the core of the Port of Oakland's new portal with real-time data of the movement of containers, chassis, and trucks across the streets of the Port that will give us new insights that no other Port in the U.S. or the world has, continuing Oakland’s leadership role in port innovation and sustainable technology,” continued Brandes.
Accurate and actionable data is the lifeblood of any supply chain. QuayChain’s solution is a neural network providing access to secure real-time data to those who always need it. The Port of Oakland will provide the digital infrastructure for the new technologies to support users and improve efficiency and sustainability across all parties.
QuayChain’s CEO, Andrew Scott, a long-time leader in the freight industry, commented, “We are excited to partner with Port of Oakland’s forward-thinking leadership team to provide data to all users of this vital West Coast gateway. We will be announcing our first pilot companies from major importers, exporters, forwarding, chassis, and trucking communities in the coming months.”
The Port announced that QuayChain will deploy its QEDs (QuayChain Edge Devices) across the Port in mid-2023.
