APS Terminal Automation at Dames Point

Tuesday, November 18, 2008

APS Technology Group (APS) announced that TraPac, Inc. will deploy several of APS' terminal automation solutions at its new container terminal at Dames Point in Jacksonville, Florida.

The 158 acre facility will include 6 post-panamax quay cranes, 6 Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes and an 18-lane automated gate complex. The project includes APS solutions to automate the identification and check-in of containers, chassis and truck license plates at each gate lane.

In an effort to provide a safer working environment, TraPac will also become the first East Coast terminal to deploy OCR automation within its vessel and yard operations. Here APS will provide its Crane OCR and MatchMaker systems, which automatically identify containers and internal tractors at each quay crane and RTG. The integrated solutions will combine to eliminate many dangerous manual processes and costly data collection errors common in complex marine terminal operations.

APS Technology Group is a provider of OCR and automation technology solutions for marine and intermodal terminals. The company vision is to provide proven technology solutions that enable our customers to improve the productivity, efficiency and cost effectiveness of their container operations by increasing the visibility, velocity, and volume of cargo moving through a terminal's gate, rail, vessel and yard operations.
