Advent eModal technology is active in every North American container gateway and at the core of operations in each of the top 10 largest port communities. Established in 1995, Advent eModal has steadily evolved from a custom software development firm into a multinational solutions company providing cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offerings.
By providing a market-leading technology platform, Advent eModal connects multi-modal stakeholders through applications that remove friction at every point of intermodal equipment interchange. The eModal® platform serves as the world’s largest port community system and hosts unlimited applications developed by Advent eModal, customers or third parties that speed laden container movement, optimize equipment utilization and aid in maximizing financial returns.

One Platform - Many Apps
The platform launches applications developed by Advent eModal, eModal customers and entrepreneurial third party developers who enjoy access to the global eModal marketplace and user community.
All applications share a single user sign on and authentication (SSO) and a shared data store. Utilizing microservices architecture, each app on the platform provides a specific purpose built business function, built to the eModal development standard and independent of the other apps. So the apps run independently to optimize performance communicating with each other using standard APIs.
The Advent eModal team developed the eModal SaaS platform to serve a dedicated set of beneficial cargo owners (BCOs) and their supply chain partners—namely marine terminal operators (MTOs), logistic service providers (LSPs), rail terminal operators and intermodal equipment providers (IEPs).
Active in every North American port gateway, eModal is a neutral third party to help ports and terminals implement technology innovation to remain competitive.
Trucks arrive when containers are available, cleared and ready to go. eModal shares all pertinent information in advance, enabling gate automation, lower container dwell and predictable fast truck turn times.
eModal is also globally deployed in Europe, Central & South America, Australia and the Hawaiian Islands.
