The eModal® Empty Manager is a solution for truckers to facilitate empty “street turns.” Whether you have an empty container that needs to be returned to the port or you are seeking an empty for a booking, the eModal Empty Manager provides a straight-forward, intuitive application to connect both parties and eliminate unnecessary and unladen trips to the port.

As an import trucker, simply publish your empty container, its characteristics, and location and instantly let others know that the empty is available for a street turn. As an export trucker, search for empties in your area, reserve the one that meets the criteria for your booking, and complete the turn. Both parties are continuously updated about the street turn status, and both can download or print a street turn receipt once completed.

With the eModal Empty manager, truckers can:

  • Reduce unladen trips to the port complex or terminal
  • Access a no touch, contactless means of exchanging empty equipment
  • Reduce traffic in and around the port
  • Decrease emissions in the port area
  • Increase truck fleet utilization / efficiency
  • Print street turn receipts when completed
