E*DRAY solves supply chain difficulties

March 26, 2018
See how the E*DRAY port logistics technology platform can benefit cargo owners and drayage companies of all sizes.

Announcing E*DRAY, a collaborative port logistics technology platform that delivers a new coordinated standard for drayage operations at terminals and container yards. E*DRAY standardizes and scales the block stow, flow stack, and export street turn processes for the import and export community nationwide. By creating this industry standard, cargo owners and drayage companies of all sizes can benefit from the process and platform.

This platform is being rolled out on a market-by-market basis in North America. Seattle/Tacoma is live and operating. With a number of customers now secured in Los Angeles/Long Beach, the local team is in place and will begin operations by the end of March 2018.

E*DRAY improves current industry practices to:

•Accelerate throughput at terminals and container yards and reduce congestion to improve productivity

•Accelerate movement of cargo off the terminal

•Enable terminals to do more with limited space

•Reduce truck emissions, delivering a greener, environmentally friendly solution

•Provide real-time visibility to container equipment and utilization

•Lower network costs by reducing wait-times and empty miles

•Match-back containers—capture import containers for exports

For example, E*DRAY drivers no longer have to wait for a specific load. They simply grab the next container in the flow stack and go. This reduces wait-times on terminals and truck emissions. Once containers reach the street, E*DRAY offers real-time visibility to containers, providing the opportunity for coordination of export backhauls or match-backs.

E*DRAY can realize all these efficiencies without disintermediating the drayage company and cargo owner relationship. Drayage companies and cargo owners participating in the program reconcile their moves through E*DRAY’s proprietary software solution, creating a truly collaborative ecosystem. The platform standardizes and enhances this solution for those already able to execute portions of the above—and also creates a unique opportunity for those that can’t.
