Port Operations Centre
The Port Operations Centre on the Port of Halifax website, has become a critical digital tool for the sharing of real-time information with customers and the larger community. Trucking companies and cargo owners can find up-to-the minute information on terminal gate metrics, weekly dwell time, arrivals and departures, and special alerts.
The first phase of this initiative has been operating since June 2018 and the data is available for anyone who visits the Port of Halifax Operations Centre on our website. The Terminal Gate Metrics module provides current visibility on fluidity of our truck gates through providing current and historic information on two key metrics:
- Gate Wait Time
- Truck Service Time
The data is made publicly available in an effort to shorten wait times, reduce congestion, and cut greenhouse gas emissions. The latter data is imperative as the trucking industry implements electronic logging device regulations in 2020.
