Grup TCB is automating the truck gates at its TCB – Terminal de Contenidors de Barcelona facility in Spain.
The contract between the terminal operator and Orbita Ingenieria stipulates that Orbita will supply its GateSuite optical character recognition solution to automate 10 new entry and exit truck lanes being built as part of an expansion program at the container terminal.
Now underway and due for completion in November 2013, the project includes installation of truck lane gantries equipped with an automated container identification and truck license plate reader system. Orbita will also supply software to integrate gate OCR data with ARGOS, Grup TCB’s terminal operating system, and will provide the hardware and systems needed for truck drivers to interact with the system, including QR codes readers and RFID readers.
The project also covers the removal and relocation of TCB’s existing Megaports radiation detection portals and infrastructure to the new terminal gates.
