Port Houston joins Portchain Connect Network

Port Houston becomes member of Portchain Connect Network

Portchain has welcomed Port Houston to the Portchain Connect Network with the aim of enhancing berth alignment quality and timeliness for its clients.

Portchain Connect will reportedly allow Port Houston to get real-time schedule and move count updates directly from carrier systems, allowing them to immediately reply and counter-propose to align the vessel schedule with the terminal berth plan.

Port Houston has also connected its berth plan with Portchain Connect to fully automate data transmission and instantly update and notify the carrier of berth schedule changes, saving time and giving frequent and accurate updates.
