The Port of New York and New Jersey (the Port) is excited to announce that its weekly Supply Chain Dashboard is now available on PortTruckPass (PTP). The Port Authority and marine terminal operators remain committed to identifying ways to increase transparency to improve our customers’ experience, including the many resources PortTruckPass offers.
PortTruckPass is an online service provided by Sustainable Terminal Services, Inc., a nonprofit corporation created by the Port’s marine terminal operators to promote secure, environmentally sensitive, and efficient operations at the Port of New York and New Jersey. PortTruckPass houses the Terminal Information Portal System (TIPS), a tool for motor carriers, shippers, beneficial cargo owners, and regional stakeholders to efficiently manage and deploy their resources when delivering or picking up cargo at the Port.
Tim Avanzato of Lanca Sales, and a Council on Port Performance member, shares how PTP can benefit a shipper:
“With the ever-evolving shipping world, one bright spot has been PortTruckPass. Instead of using five different terminal systems to verify availabilities, it is a one-stop shop that provides all the information one needs for import availability to open vessels for exports. Using this program has saved Lanca Sales countless man hours for tracking and tracing and, most importantly, drastically reduces the chances our truckers have something fall into demurrage or miss an export cutoff”.
PortTruckPass continues to add new features and key updates to support the needs of our stakeholders when planning their cargo movements. They include:
- APIs for cargo visibility and appointment setting.
- Timeline representation of the container lifecycle.
- Unified Container Watchlists for imports and exports.
- Capabilities to download containers, booking, and group code information through e-mail notification, PDF, and Excel formats.
- Vessel schedules via lists and calendar views.
We encourage shippers and Port customers to create an account with PortTruckPass to view the dashboard. Additionally, you can find more resources and training here.
