Cargotec Automates the Gate at Terminal de Vila Velha

Press Release
Friday, December 21, 2012

Terminal de Vila Velha in Espirito Santo, Brazil, has opted for the installation of Cargotec's Kalmar SmartLanes OCR technology solution to ensure that both security and productivity at the gate are improved.

 

Cargotec will provide the SmartLane solution, consisting of an Automated Gate System (AGS). The AGS automatically captures the container numbers, truck license plates, chassis plates and driver identification of all inbound and outbound transactions. Cargotec is responsible for both the project delivery and the ongoing maintenance and support.

 
Terminal de Vila Velha (TVV) specialises in container handling and general cargo for import and export operations, servicing key Brazilian and international ports. In 2011, TVV managed 220,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) and expects to increase this volume in 2012. Last year TVV introduced Navis Sparcs N4 as terminal operating system with great success.

As a direct result of the familiarity and experience with Navis, TVV's decision for Cargotec's Kalmar SmartPort is straightforward. Anderson Carvalho, director of terminals at Terminal de Vila Velha said: "We are convinced the maximum improvement in security, productivity and efficiency can only be realised by a well integrated solution with our terminal operating system. The pre-integration ensures a proven solution, rather than a complex project. This in turn minimizes both the project risk and the total costs of ownership." The combination of these factors allows TVV to leverage existing assets, minimise new project costs, and truly maximise the result of the new automation investments.

 
The solution provided to Terminal de Vila Velha is realised through the Cargotec's SmartPort Alliance, in close cooperation with partner APS. Cargotec's Kalmar SmartPort is a collection of pre-integrated process and equipment automation solutions from Kalmar, Navis and strategic partners, ensuring the best possible fit for any size of terminal.
