Port of Rotterdam Authority invests in low-treshold monitoring system for container transport

This first mobile turn-key scanner increases efficiency in the logistics chain

The Port of Rotterdam Authority is starting a test project with Barge Terminal Tilburg and Certus Port Automation, a manufacturer of container identification and monitoring systems. All trucks that arrive at, or depart from this inland container terminal over the coming three months, will pass through a newly developed scanning portal that scans trucks for registration numbers and containers for container numbers. The scanner also provides images so that container status on arrival and at departure from the terminal can be examined. This will enable cargo owners and terminal operators to monitor more precisely the time at which a container can be transferred for further transport.
