Port Everglades Terminal (PET) has recently implemented Advent eModal (AeM)’s community portal to enable its new gate appointment system and automated fee payment functionalities.
The system is now live and operational.
AeM’s PreGate and Fee Manager programmes are incorporated into the eModal Community Portal (eCP) on the eModal platform.
The eCP is a comprehensive module inside eModal that aids in the optimisation of port and intermodal operations by increasing cargo visibility, expediting fee payments, and managing appointment chores.
PET is using eModal to automate capabilities across its container port, enhancing cargo visibility and velocity for the terminal and its stakeholders.
PET may also benefit from eModal’s eCP, which provides a fully integrated platform for container visibility, gate appointments, and fee processing at the terminal.
Rick Blackmore, CEO of Port Everglades Terminal, said: “Today, marine terminal operators must move ever-increasing cargo volumes within limited terminal acreage. It’s imperative to streamline operations.
“With eModal’s PreGate and Fee Manager applications, we can improve gate flow, expand our capacity to allow more throughput and provide better visibility and service to our trucker and shipper community.”
PET went live with eModal in July 2023. The go-live adds to Port Everglades’ recent milestones, including new support for Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC)’s Santana service and its July Customer Appreciation Open House.
Jonathan Daniels, Port Everglades CEO and Port Director, stated: “The addition of Advent eModal to PET’s already efficient marine terminal operations will be a real plus, especially with the start of MSC’s Santana service to Asia along with MSC’s other services to the Caribbean and Latin America.”
Advent eModal CEO, Parvez Mansuri, said: “We are proud that Port Everglades Terminal has chosen the eModal as their gate appointment and fee management solution.
“We look forward to working closely with PET to provide innovative and integrated solutions that will help them achieve their service goals by automating day-to-day operational tasks, optimising cargo velocity and delivering improved services to all port stakeholders.”
In October 2021, Port Everglades, the National Port Authority of Honduras, and Operadora Portuaria Centroamericana (OPC), signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) as part of a joint Sister Seaports agreement.
