The strength of a seaport lies in the stakeholders that participate in its supply chain. These stakeholders consist of terminal operators, shipping lines, freight forwarders, road and rail operators, federal authorities, and the other countless operators that are involved in moving goods along.
All these participants in the supply chain generate data, and need data to operate efficiently. This need has led to the creation of data dashboard systems that make information available to those who need it, in a privacy-preserving manner.
These systems, which are web-enabled and mobile friendly, have been developed by Nicom IT Solutions of Halifax. More information and a link to the site are at http://www.nicominteractive.com/port-of-halifax/.
