Each Gate lane is equipped with a video camera, a barcode reader, a voice communication system between kitchen clerk and driver in lane, and a buckslip printer to issue a ticket at lane.
At the terminal where OCR is installed, container/chassis number and truck license plate number are automatically captured and transmitted to TMS gate application, resulting in fast truck turn-time.
Yard is being operated by full line of container handling equipment. Based on the service demand and over-all terminal thru-put, yard is configured to provide sufficient wheeled spots as well as grounded spots. Along with container movement in yard, container yard spot is directly updated on TMS using vehicle-mount mobile computers through wireless network.
A well-marked yard configuration, and computerized yard inventory maximizes the efficiency of the overall terminal operation. Skilled management and steady labor with up-to-date equipment provide efficient and effective handling of customer line's containers.
