New portal aims to leverage the industry standard eModal Community Portal to enable digitization and improve cargo visibility through a centralized information hub

Advent eModal today unveiled the Portal for Panama initiative for container terminal operators and their port constituents moving cargo through the Panama Canal zone.

Born of extensive outreach with key terminal operators, shippers, truckers and other stakeholders in the Panama Canal area, the Portal for Panama aims to enable digitization, foster collaboration and improve cargo visibility and velocity in the region by leveraging the proven eModal Community Portal (eCP) port community platform currently in use at major port gateways across the U.S.

This community outreach led to a successful Portal for Panama Summit meeting in Panama City in April 2019. Here, senior leadership from the Panama port and logistics community, including representatives from a majority of the Panama Canal area terminals, the Panama Canal Railway Company (PCRC) and key trucking and logistics providers, came together for the first time to engage in a closed-door session exploring the potential for a shared, independent and secure landside logistics portal.

Today, the Portal for Panama is gaining traction as eModal has completed data integration with Manzanillo International Terminal (MIT) and has started initial testing with Colón Container Terminal (CCT). The primary goal is to create a single, centralized information hub that will integrate with all container terminals in the region to digitize and drive key data and visibility to all port stakeholders.
