World Port Development asked us about the benefits of AI-based OCR solutions for container handling processes and what effects such technologies have on the operations of marine and intermodal terminals.

For the modern GOS (Gate Operating System), it makes little difference if we are talking about quayside, truck gate, rail, or even yard processes. The access and area management requirements for each of those operational areas are fundamentally the same:
1) Identify assets (trucks, CHE, cargo, people, etc.)
2) Digitise and share relevant data with 3rd party systems such as the TOS
3) Allow the assets to move against the reference of a correct work order or create an exception handling event if there is a conflict
