Everport Terminal Services Tacoma, operator of Pierce County Terminal (PCT), a 140 acre container terminal in Tacoma, Washington, has successfully deployed the eModal Community Portal (eCP) PreGate appointment module.
The eModal PreGate appointment module provides a customizable solution that allows Everport to specify which transactions require appointments, which information must be provided by dispatchers, and the length of appointment windows and grace periods.
