March 7, 2018 - Advent Intermodal Solutions, LLC. has expanded its eModal.com platform to enable port authorities and terminals in a common region to quickly create a single, digital window for port users to collaborate and get up to date information about their containerized cargo.
Advent's CEO Parvez Mansuri noted, "Before people had to go to multiple websites and make phone calls to get this information. With this community portal template, both port authorities and their terminal operators can channel all the critical information kept in the eModal platform to port users through a simple, customizable interface that they control"
“This is the next big thing in global trade,” said Oakland Senior Project Administrator Eric Napralla. "It’s a common platform – one place where everyone can go to more easily view and direct their shipments.”
The project enables all stakeholders in the port area to customize to share the data that port users need to pickup and deliver cargo more efficiently including:
- Marine terminal/depot information such as open hours and operational notices
- Vessel schedules
- Empty container return information
- Port and terminal web cameras
- A password protected 'Dashboard' showing all containers from your watchlist and key metrics on your cargo
