Rotterdam Cool Port Operates Automated Gate
Rotterdam Cool Port, a and coldstorage warehouse and terminal facility located in the Port of Rotterdam, with 5 hectares and a capacity of 40.000 temperature controlled pallets, is preparing for the opening. "By operating a state-of-the-art terminal, we are offering our customers the highest possible service level in the transport of perishable goods" according to Hans Kroes, CEO of Kloosterboer.
Part of the state-of-the-art warehouse is an Automated Gate where the truck and its driver are automatically identified, and where the driver is able to confirm his mission without the interaction of the Kloosterboer staff. The solution consists of driver kiosks, license plate recognition and Gate OCR together with the CERTUS Gate Operating system (GOS). The GOS integrates with the warehouse management system to verify booking details and provide for docking locations. For automatic driver identification, the solution utilizes the Cargo Card system by Secure Logistics.
