APS Technology Group Enters Brazilian Market

Thursday, August 04, 2011

APS Technology Group, Inc., a provider of optical character recognition (OCR) and process automation technology solutions for marine and intermodal terminals, announced its entry into the Brazilian market with the award of a terminal automation project at Tecon Suape S/A in Recife, Brazil.  Tecon Suape, a member of ICTSI Group, is implementing the APS solutions to support volume growth, reduce operational costs and to meet the Customs mandate to install OCR at its gates. Tecon Suape expects to increase its movement capacity to an annual throughput of 1.5 million containers.  This project represents the second in Latin America for APS within the ICTSI group, including Contecon Guayaquil SA (CGSA) in Guayaquil, Ecuador.

APS will implement and maintain the solution, which includes its fully Automated Gate System, STS Crane OCR and its patented MatchMaker tractor identification solutions to automatically identify containers to improve data accuracy, throughput and security while decreasing overall operating costs.  Also included in the project will be two APS software solutions X-Clerk exception management system, which allows OCR misreads to be resolved in near real-time; and SureStow, which compares the planned load events to the actual placement, and notes any deviation from the plan.
