DCSA publishes framework of just-in-time standards for main port call activities

Standards for port call activities could provide a basis for a data exchange system for status, and could also provide motivation for a priority basis for specific containers.

There’s currently no message or signaling system allowing all the supply chain partners to move a given container to know the required speed of service. Partners can’t coordinate unless they know precisely which containers need to be moved when.

The standards for service steps in the port would make it easier to determine when a container was behind schedule and expediting was needed to meet the level of service guaranteed.

Of course, the standards proposed by DCSA need to be tried out by ports, and the system needs to be tweaked based on what they find. But it’s a good start.
