Advent eModal launches PreGate application at Port of Philadelphia

Packer Avenue Marine Terminal has expanded its usage of Advent eModal’s (AeM) eModal Community Portal with the deployment of PreGate at the Port of Philadelphia.

Operated by Greenwich Terminals LLC and a part of Holt Logistics Corp., the terminal went live with PreGate in April 2024.

The addition of the PreGate application complements the terminal’s existing Drayage Truck Registry (DTR), which tracks and manages drayage trucks operating within the port and its associated intermodal facilities.  

The terminal’s integration of PreGate with DTR enhances gate operations, according to AeM. The application allows truckers and shippers to schedule appointments in advance to facilitate a more efficient entry and exit process.

eModal PreGate’s integration with DTR also reportedly offers real-time notifications about changes across core appointment functions, such as yard and dispatch planning, vessel scheduling and cargo availability, driving increased visibility and efficiencies across the port.

According to AeM, the integration of PreGate enhances coordination with the motor carrier community, giving users and operators visibility into relevant gate and yard statuses. By validating truck information in advance, PreGate reduces wait times and alleviates congestion at the terminal gates.

These enhancements are expected to boost security measures and the overall efficiency and responsiveness of the supply chain.

“Adding eModal PreGate supports our modernisation strategies and will allow us to increase throughput at the port,” said David Whene, President at Greenwich Terminals LLC.

“This initiative will improve experiences for the trucking community by providing increased visibility into critical appointment details. Further modernisation to drive efficiency across terminal operations reinforces us as a central supply chain hub in North America.”

“Advent eModal solutions empower our partners and customers to operate with transparency and predictability, helping them navigate today’s supply chain challenges.

“Our continued collaboration with Packer Avenue Marine Terminal is a significant milestone for AeM as a trusted partner to terminal operators on the East Coast.”
