We are expecting that it will add value to our operations and also ensure compliance with Brazilian Customs demands".

Cargotec will provide the SmartLanes solution, consisting of an Automated Gate System (AGS) and Rail OCR system featuring OCR portals, Driver Kiosks and barrier gates to manage a multi staged automated gate.

Cargotec is responsible for both the project delivery and the ongoing maintenance and support.  Wilson Sons has had an excellent working relationship with Navis since 1999, now leading to the order for Cargotec SmartPort. One of the primary reasons to select the SmartPort solution was because of ease of the future integration with Navis' SN4 TOS.

Cargotec SmartPort is a collection of pre-integrated process and equipment automation solutions from Cargotec, Navis and strategic partners, ensuring the best possible fit for any size of terminal.
