eModal® - Terminal Handling.
A solution for handling of unaccompanied freight integrated with Ferry companies enabling a complete paperless transshipment process with real time traceability, as well as time saving in the transport chain.
The key to the digital transformation of Ports Terminals is to establish a seamless sharing of reservations data, ready for the integration with local systems and applications, for security, handling, statistics and administrative purposes.
eModal® provides an open and neutral electronic platform that enables Ports to be real time integrated with Hauliers, Railways and multiple Ferries Companies at same time, radically reducing the cost and complexity of one-to-one process integration.
Thanks to a collection of XML messages for exchanging data of core processes involved in the port operations like, scheduling, bookings, loading, freight license plates, etc, eModal® automates and optimizes business processes and workflows across systems, people and public authorities involved in Ports operations.
