The Port of Houston, TX, USA, has partnered with Portchain Connect to increase communication with its customers and improve its overall berth alignment.

Portchain Connect makes use of AI for streamlining communication and data, which includes the use of automatic identification systems for the embedded tracking of vessels.

The features of the Portchain Connect network include a digital handshake for vessel ETAs and ETDs, connected data streams and alert subscriptions.

The software solution allows Port Houston to share its berthing plans digitally, meaning operating companies and ship captains can be notified of schedule changes instantaneously.

Port Houston director of operations Mike Shaffner emphasised the customer benefits of joining the Portchain Connect network: “We are excited to improve our berth alignment and collaboration with our customers. The automated data exchange and digital collaboration saves time and effort and improves the berth scheduling process.”

Portchain Connect CCO and co-founder Thor Thorup added: “We are excited to work with Port Houston and help them drive efficiencies in their berth alignment process by facilitating streamlined data exchange. We look forward to continuing our collaboration and continuously improving the platform based on user feedback.”
