NEWS RELEASE: New study outlines benefits of information technology to drayage sector

VANCOUVER – The Asia Pacific Gateway Skills Table released findings from the Study of Innovative Technologies for Communicating Real-time Information to Port Drayage Drivers today. Conducted with the assistance of the Montreal Port Authority, the study looked at 10 ports around the world to understand their information systems for communicating important traffic and terminal conditions to drayage companies and drivers.

The study describes port authority systems that communicate real-time port and roadway conditions. The ports selected for this study, located in North America and Europe, vary in size and complexity of their technology systems. These communication systems range from simple email, Twitter-based or SMS text systems to comprehensive networks using webcams, sophisticated data collection and changeable message signs.
