How long does it take to implement a truck appointment system?

On average, between 2-4 weeks time is required to configure and launch an appointment or PreGate function within eModal™.  This assumes that your facility already shares data with eModal™ or, if not, you're happy to use one of our existing interface message specifications (or an EDI message) to do so.  

The simpler, faster method is to focus on only a preadvisement approach to start and NOT require a timed appointment for a specific truck/mission type.  This just requires the visiting trucker or their dispatcher to provide the minimum input required to speed or even fully automate gate arrival(SCAC/Truck Code, Move Type, Container ID or Booking #, etc).
