If you’ve ever ordered something online, there’s a good chance that product was manufactured elsewhere and ended up making a long voyage to get into your hands. If you’ve ever seen a cargo ship or cargo yard, you’ve seen shipping containers, which are used to import a massive volume of products—so much importing and exporting happens through these containers, in fact, that it only makes sense to come up with comprehensive ways of tracking those cargo containers and making that data manageable and usable. That’s why there are big benefits to the use of an Intelligent Shipping Container Detection System, which could increase both efficiency as well as security.
What is a Shipping Container Detection System?
The Gatekeeper Intelligent Shipping Container Detection System can offer huge benefits when tracking cargo containers. Think about it this way: losing just one container, either through a security breach or even just through a mistake, can result in the loss of thousands of dollars of products. Those costs add up over time, making it clear that there’s a need for a different way of handling the situation. Instead, take advantage of a shipping container detection system, which in our case uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software which can decode the information on a cargo container and turn it into organizable information perfect for tracking that precious cargo.
Why Use One?
The benefits are obvious when compared to traditional methods, which usually rely on human operators to inspect cargo containers manually and put that information down on good old fashioned pen and paper. Unfortunately, human operators tend to make all kinds of operators and simply can’t parse through the volume of cargo containers nearly as effectively as a system backed by intelligence can. This is a fantastic option for the cargo and shipping industries where getting a product into the hands of an end-consumer as seamlessly as possible is the name of the game.
