About Us

Established in 1995, Advent has steadily evolved from a custom software development firm into a multi-national intermodal solutions company. Advent’s growth was greatly enhanced through its 2012 merger with eModal™, the world's largest online community portal. Today, Advent is a leader in IT and cloud-based software solutions that accelerate the mission-critical operations of ports and the entire landside logistics network. More than 40 port authorities, container terminals and inland depots and nearly 100,000 users trust Advent for their software solutions, custom development and EDI/data management services. 

Since its inception, Advent’s goal has been to be one of the leading solution providers in the intermodal industry. Our philosophy is to create solutions tailored to the unique needs of our customers, rather than asking them to change their business model to fit our products and solutions. To do this, we employ a talented, innovative group of professionals with diverse backgrounds in transportation, systems development, and project management. Our hands-on experience in the marine terminal and trucking industries allows us to understand projects and operations from the perspective of our clients, ensuring complete project satisfaction from beginning to end.  

  • We believe in a better way of doing business where equality and transparency amongst ALL stakeholders in the container supply chain is the fastest path to sustainable success
  • We are obsessed with continual improvement of our industry and our customers operations
  • We believe a smarter, simpler and sustainable solution always wins the day
