A lot of consumers just don’t realize the voyage a product might take—and the hands its exchanged from—before it reaches the end goal of their home. Products are shipped worldwide and that kind of volume requires a system that is reliable, trackable, and easy to use. According to The Atlantic, nearly 90 percent of what we buy comes to us through cargo containers and only around 5 percent of those containers that reach the U.S. get physically inspected. It’s no wonder, then, that there’s an increased need for automated technology in the container world.
Looking to a Container Code Reader System
Our container code reader system is an asset when trying to track cargo containers. Losing a single cargo container could mean losing thousands of dollars worth of goods—a risk that just isn’t worth taking when there’s a simple alternative. Traditional pen and paper methods of tracking cargo containers won’t do. Instead, our container code reader uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to accurately decode information on a cargo container, which is ideal for automatic container inventory and tracking software.
What Uses Could it Have?
If you need to keep track of a container of interest or want to mark potentially damaged containers, there’s nothing better than our container code reader system. This is ideal for when you want to remove the possible errors that come along with manually recording codes and removing all the paper that comes along with it. Having an easily manageable database for containers allows for the potential of saving both money and time, allowing you to cut down on the once-necessary man-hours and leave more of the process up to the container code reader system.
What Industries Benefit?
The cargo and shipping industry are obviously the biggest beneficiaries of such a technology, but they’re not the only ones. Plenty of commercial operations use cargo containers either as storage or even as production sites and must keep track of their inventory. If you’re working with a high volume of cargo containers, then a container code reader is likely appropriate for you.
