Port of Long Beach Launches WAVE Report

Port of Long Beach officials hope to help supply chain stakeholders better address cargo flow challenges with the launch of a new data report.

The Weekly Advance Volume Estimate, or WAVE, is expected to publish every Monday with cargo volume projections and vessel calls weeks in advance, as well as export, import and empty container estimates, the port said.

“We’ve created the WAVE report to provide our goods movement stakeholders with up-to-date forecast data to use in their planning process,” said Port Executive Director Mario Cordero. “Sharing this information is highly beneficial for the supply chain, especially as we cope with both seasonal and unanticipated peaks and valleys in cargo volume.” The WAVE report is available at www.polb.com/wavereport and posted on the port’s LinkedIn and Twitter accounts.
