In 2017, Visy was selected to deliver APMT Gothenburg Visy Access Gate – gate automation environment with Truck OCR portals and a Rail OCR portal (Phase 1). After successful delivery of Phase 1, Visy was also awarded a contract to supply a Crane OCR camera system with TopView spreader OCR for 7 STS cranes and 2 RMG cranes in 2022-23 (Phase 2).

The case study was presented in TOC Europe 2023 by Visy’s Global Sales & Marketing Director John Lund. See the presentation here: APMT Gothenburg: Automation in phases
Soon after automating their gate processes with Visy Access Gate & Visy OCR portals, APMT Gothenburg reduced their truck turn-around time from 56 minutes to 25 minutes, allowing the terminal to serve more cargo. Shorter handling times have also had a positive effect in their green initiatives, with carbon emissions being reduced by 688 tonnes in 2020.
