Another exciting project coming out of the task force is the development of technology to measure truck turn times.  It captures bluetooth signals and is the same technology used to estimate commute times.  We have all seen the freeway signs “24 Minutes to Downtown.”
The port is installing bluetooth readers on the streets and at the marine terminal gates. The readers will pick up bluetooth IDs anonymously. Alternatively, drivers or motor carriers can register, which will enable the tracking of specific trucks.
The data is continually processed through sophisticated algorithms to determine trucks in queue versus moving traffic.  It will even determine the specific queue in which the truck is waiting, as frequently the lines overlap.
The end result will be an aggregate, real-time, truck turn time.  These aggregate times will be available for all to see and will include the total truck turn time broken down into two segments, the outside-the-gate queue time and the ingate to outgate terminal transaction time. For registered users, this same information will be available on a truck specific basis.
It is currently a work in progress and is expected to go live in the first quarter of next year.
Kudos to the Port of Oakland for thinking outside the box and being the first port in the country to implement this important technology.
