Port Logistics Optimization Tool

The Challenge

The movement of containers through the Port of Montreal’s network is driven by a complex web of information exchanges between numerous stakeholders. A data-driven approach provides, at best, good upstream visibility on the rail and marine supply chain in order to support decision-making. At a tactical level, this upstream visibility can be enhanced through AI and predictive analytical tools. A better synchronization of all elements of supply chains is expected to bring substantial benefits to the entire gateway ecosystem.

Daniel Dagenais, Vice-President, Operations, Montreal Port Authority: “It will benefit all stakeholders involved in the chain, reducing cargo delays and overall dwell time, while maximizing global throughput to our major logistics hub.”
