New Drayage Network

By Karen Robes Meeks

E*DRAY, a tech-based platform aimed at making drayage operations at terminals and container yards more efficient, is rolling out in North American markets after a year of planning and market testing, and another nine months of technology development, the company announced Monday.

E*DRAY has heightened its presence with Seattle/Tacoma and is operating live. Several other customers have been secured in Los Angeles/Long Beach and a local team is expected to begin operations by the end of this month, according to the company.

“The Port of Los Angeles is supportive of programs like E*DRAY to help cargo velocity through our gateway,” said Los Angeles Port Executive Director Gene Seroka. “With our GE Transportation initiative underway, E*DRAY stands to both strengthen and complement what we are bringing to the port community.”

The Northwest Seaport Alliance, which consists of the Ports of Seattle and Tacoma, was the first port to partner with E*DRAY, said John Wolfe, CEO of Northwest Seaport Alliance.

“Their innovation, technology and team have a new approach to increasing velocity through our gateway, which is needed across the country,” he said. “We're excited to work with them and help this become a new standard for those that embrace their solution.”
