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: “This project is another critical milestone in our progress towards the ‘Smart Port’ vision we are implementing. 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.”
