Automated container identification system by APS Technology Group to be installed in Mexican ports of Manzanillo & Veracruz

APS Technology Group, Inc., located in San Diego, a leading provider of optical character recognition and automation technology solutions for marine and intermodal container terminals announced it has entered the Mexico container terminal market with Hutchison Port Holdings (HPH) implementing the APS Automated Gate System optical character recognition (OCR) solution at two marine container terminals at the ports of Manzanillo and Veracruz.  The solution will automate the container identification process at its exit gates with the collection of high-resolution images to increase throughput and enable remote equipment inspections.

HPH's Internacional de Contenedores Asociados de Veracruz (ICAVE) is located at the Port of Veracruz, a major hub and transshipment port serving the east coast of Mexico. ICAVE handles approximately 80% of Veracruz's container throughput and 19% of all containers handled in the country. Terminal Internacional de Manzanillo (TIMSA) is a key hub port on the west coast of Mexico and handles 18% of containerized cargo in the port of Manzanillo. The APS Gate OCR solution will be integrated with Hutchison's proprietary host system to enable the automatic gate processing functions without human interaction.
