EMS Appointment System
Per today’s eModal advisory, effective Monday, December 18th, EMS will begin strictly enforcing import delivery appointments.
The EMS appointment system has a 2 hour block with 30 minute early and 30 minute late grace period. For those drivers attempting a dual transaction, it is strongly urged not to come in under the late grace period as timely service may be at risk.
EMS is committed to providing a reliable product and efficient operations so theyare unable to allow appointment exemptions as that will directly impact servicing other customers already in the terminal who have appropriately complied with the EMS appointment system.
Please remember that Live Reefers are exempt from appointments and wheeled containers are eligible for early delivery as long as there is a valid future appointment on file.
