Container Yards are often quite large in which materials and containers are moved frequently. Likewise, there is significant room for human error when dealing with large quantities of containers that must be tracked by pick-up location, time or date. With i-TEK 4r (Read, Record, Report and Real-Time) system, we have a complete proven solution to take care of all container tracking requirements.
Currently, in most Container Freight Stations (CFS) or Inland container Depot (ICD), collection of the information of container is manual and depends on workers or semi-automatic devices. Inefficiency and inaccuracy of container management become an obstacle to realize the information about container logistics. Some technologies have been tested to settle this problem, such as image processing and pattern recognition to identify the container number, but these methods only achieve a recognition rate of 80%-95% and the workload of the workers is still large. In this context, we introduce the RFID technology, which can be used to improve the situation. This RFID technology can be used to keep track of the locations of the containers, to give greater visibility of the operations data and to improve the business and control processes.
Yard managers can achieve real-time visibility into the location, entrance, exit, and intra-yard movement of every container for which they are responsible.
