Optimizing Port Operations for Economic and Environmental Impact
The Port of Los Angeles is the largest container port in the United States. While the port is a model of innovation and sustainability, it must also keep up with increasing competition and continue to improve its operations. FUSE executive fellow Andrew Scott’s work with the port focused on developing solutions to enhance supply chain efficiency, address congestion issues, and minimize the port’s environmental impact.
Andrew’s leadership, driven by a culture of innovation, helped implement a major project for the Port of Los Angeles: a $12 million agreement with GE Transportation for a first-of-its-kind digital solution portal that will improve efficiency to include all container terminals and shipping lines at the port. Federal officials from the U.S. Departments of Commerce, Transport, and Labor, and the Federal Maritime Commission are closely watching the implementation of the portal with an eye toward possible national adoption.
