The Port of Rotterdam Authority has recently announced a new investment for a low-threshold monitoring system for container transportation. A test program will soon begin with Barge Terminal Tilburg and Certus Port Automation, who manufacture monitoring and container identification systems.

Over the next three months, all trucks that arrive at, or depart from the inland container terminal will pass through a state-of-the-art scanning portal that will scan registration numbers of trucks and container numbers for containers.

Images are also provided by the scanner the allows for examination of the container status on arrival and at departure from the terminal, this feature allows terminal operators and cargo owners to closely monitor the time at which a container can be transferred for further transport.

Port of Rotterdam Authority Launches Low-Threshold Monitoring SystemDue to the extreme accuracy of the scanned data less manual work is required onsite at the terminal this increases efficiency throughout the whole logistics chain. Although Comparable identification and monitoring systems have been in operation for some time at the port, this is the first time a low-threshold system has been tested.

One of the main goals of the Port Authority is to work with supply chain companies to provide access to digital data that will further enhance and optimize the logistics chain. The scanning portal is fully financed by the Port Authority, in exchange they will charge a small fee for each scanned container that comes from the inland terminal.

After the initial test period, results will be analyzed and a decision may be taken to further extend the trial.
