TraPac drives operational results through automation and digitalization at Port of Los Angeles
TraPac is on the leading edge in container-terminal automation in North America. In 2017, TraPac deployed a PI System in an effort to consolidate data from the various automation systems and provide improved operational insight. The system has since been widely adopted within the organization and has resulted in a number of benefits: faster root-cause analysis, significant improvements to the equipment maintenance program and enhanced ability to identify optimization opportunities. The presentation will outline the system implementation, identify some of the challenges within the context of the logistics industry, and describe the key analyses and use cases which have been most beneficial to TraPac.
Randy Vu is a Control and Automation Engineer with Hatch and has 10 years of experience in Instrumentation, Controls and SCADA in the Oil & Gas and Logistics industries. He has worked with TraPac to deploy and maintain the PI system, develop KPIs and perform data analysis.
