• Wilmington Port Operations Digital Transformation

    NCDOT Research Project Number: 2023-28

 Executive Summary

  • In the ever-evolving landscape of trade and logistics, the Port of Wilmington serves as a pivotal hub for North Carolina and the East Coast of the United States. This project focused on using diverse data streams (both internal and external to the port) in order to identify potential barriers to improved truck turn times for general cargo. By combining terminaloperating data with external sources of data, such as external port traffic data, results (i) demonstrated how port decision making can be augmented with external data; (ii) identified potential opportunities to reduce truck turn times in general cargo; and (iii) supported the Port of Wilmington in its future expansion efforts. A future study that could be undertaken would be to explore variability in the types of general cargo arriving to the port, including a different distribution of sawn wood, iron, pulp and steel.​

    *The NC Ports Authority has decided not to publish the final report until futher studies have been completed.
