With the number of products shipped internationally, it’s no wonder that there are still so many ports that deal with thousands upon thousands of cargo crates per day. With all of those cargo crates passing through ports, it’s no wonder that cargo security and keeping track of all those containers has become incredibly important. If even one single container goes missing, that could end up being thousands of dollars worth of merchandise. One technology aimed at combatting this potential problem is the Intelligent Shipping Container Detection System. Today, we want to look at how the Intelligent Shipping Container Detection System can increase efficiencies and help cargo ports reduce their daily operational risks.
What Does it Do?
The Intelligent Shipping Container Detection System makes the tracking and organizing of cargo containers easy and instant. Because there’s such an incredible amount of assets that pass through these ports, finding the best ways to ensure that everything gets to where it should be has always been a big part of port design and protocols.
Over time, all of these little inefficiencies like spending time determining where a cargo container went off to or whether something is in the right place or not can end up costing a lot of time and money. An alternative is to use a shipping container detection system. In our case, the Intelligent Shipping Container Detection System has Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software that makes reading info on a cargo container easy. As a result, this lets ports and other cargo centers capable of easily organizing their containers and keeping track of where everything is.
How Can it Make a Port More Efficient?
Traditional methods of storing information regarding where cargo containers are just aren’t the best way of doing things. Typically, one would need to manually write down all of the details about a container and keep track of everything the old fashioned pen and paper way. One can quickly see the flaws in a system such as this, not to mention the lack of benefits like having an easily organizable database that can be quickly accessed by multiple users.
