Everport Terminal in Tacoma Goes Live with eModal PreGate Appointment Solution to Drive Cargo Velocity
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. By collecting critical data in advance and enabling the terminal to proactively plan for trucker arrivals, the PreGate solution can improve gate efficiency, reduce turn times, and drive cargo velocity for all port stakeholders.
