E*DRAY, a new collaborative logistics technology platform, has been rolled out to industry operators in North America.
Offering a new coordinated standard for drayage operations for terminals and container yards, the platform is set to standardize block stow, flock stack and export street turn processes.
E*DRAY looks to improve a number of industry practices, including accelerating throughput at terminals and container yards, reducing truck emissions, and providing real-time visibility to container equipment and utilization.
E*DRAY is currently in the process of being rolled out, with operators in Seattle/Tacoma currently live.

Local operations in Los Angeles/Long Island are also in place and set to begin operations by the end of March.
Commenting on the introduction of the platform at Los Angeles, Gene Seroka, Executive Director, POLA said: “The Port of Los Angeles (POLA) is supportive of programs like E*DRAY to help cargo velocity through our gateway.
“With our GE Transportation initiative underway, E*DRAY stands to both strengthen and complement what we are bringing to the port community.”
The Habour Trucking Association has also established a partnership with E*DRAY, with more details to be announced in the coming months.
“HTA is always looking for opportunities to improve turn times and create consistency for its members,” stated Weston LaBar, CEO. “E*DRAY brings a unique solution to the table as they work to create a new standard for terminal velocity and efficiency.”
Reade Kidd, President of E*DRAY, said: “Response to E*DRAY has been overwhelming. Container shipping participants have been weighed down by congestion, inefficiency and slow turn-times. E*DRAY is creating a new standard that solves a range of supply chain pain points, providing greater productivity as well as time and cost savings.”
