PortVan eHub mobile app for Port of Vancouver

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority launched an innovative mobile app today that brings real-time monitoring of port operations to users across the supply chain.

Available on the Apple App Store and Google Play, the PortVan eHub app offers insight into the operating status at the Port of Vancouver's four container terminals, as well as road advisories, rail activity on Vancouver's south shore, cruise terminal vessel embarkation windows at Canada Place, and the status of vessels in port.

"Over the past several years, we have been introducing innovative ways to provide transparent, real-time information to our port users and stakeholders," said Peter Xotta, vice president, planning and operations at the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority. "The PortVan eHub app is another way we can quickly share what is happening in the port to the people who need that information the most."

The PortVan eHub app combines information collected from the mandatory GPS units on container trucks, live monitoring of port operations from the port authority's 24/7 Operations Centre, and cross-agency information from organizations like the Regional Transportation Management Centre.

Notifications about terminal operating status, rail crossing activity on port property along Vancouver's south shore, or traffic interruptions on major routes can now be received through immediate and automatic updates, allowing those travelling to or from the port to plan their routes accordingly.

The PortVan eHub app is available for free download on Apple iPhone with iOS 9.0 or above and on Android smartphones with version 4.0.3 or above. The app will also be made available for tablets in future version releases.
