Automatic Container Damage Detection

World’s first automatic container damage detection system

Visy Automatic Container Damage Detection System (ADDS) is the first commercially available solution for automatic container damage inspection. The portal solution uses modern AI software with line scan camera technologies to provide a non-stop operation and real-time tool for detecting damaged containers. Visy ADDS enhances automation in container terminals, clears liabilities and alerts of damaged containers without interrupting the flow of the traffic.

Container damage inspection without interruptions

Visy ADDS automatically recognizes structural and surface deformities in containers, such as dents and bulges, when trucks drive through detection portals. Trucks no longer need to stop for manual damage inspections, which cuts the time spent at gate transactions and significantly decreases turnaround times. This also allows terminal operators to move manpower from the yard to the office. Visy ADDS can be inserted as an additional feature to Visy IRIS OCR portals, if automatic detection of other features such as license plates, container IDs, dangerous goods labels, door orientation, or seal presence is also required.

Protect your revenue and improve safety

Visy ADDS brings unprecedented advantages for entire supply chains by automating the container damage inspection process. The solution enables streamlined container repair services and helps terminal operators to shed insurance liabilities and damage claims for containers that arrive to the terminal already damaged. Visy ADDS also enhances the overall safety of facilities by preventing accidents and other hazardous incidents; damaged containers are stopped before they enter automatic handling stages, which helps to protect the goods inside and prevents additional damage when the containers are lifted or stacked.
