Alaska Haulage Company Improves Operations With Megapixel Cameras

IQinVision : 16 September, 2011  (Application Story)
IQinVision has installed IQeye megapixel cameras at 10 terminals of Carlile Transportation in North America providing improved operational performance at the haulage company
Alaska Haulage Company Improves Operations With Megapixel Cameras
IQinVision has announced that Carlile Transportation is utilizing IQeye HD megapixel cameras at two of its trucking terminal complexes and has plans to install IQeye cameras at all 10 of its North American terminals. Anixter is the value added distribution partner for this on-going project.

Carlile Transportation Systems, founded in 1980 by brothers John and Harry McDonald, has grown from two tractors to one of Alaska's largest trucking companies. Today, Carlile's wholly-owned terminals serve Alaska from Anchorage, Fairbanks, Kenai, Kodiak, Prudhoe Bay and Seward, as well as Tacoma, WA, Houston, TX, Blaine, MN, and Edmonton, AB. An interesting side note:  Carlile drivers are featured in History Channel’s “Ice Road Truckers” for the second year.

Carlile had been using analogue cameras to monitor some of their terminals, but as company CTO Eugene O’Neal related, “The picture quality was bad, so we really needed the clarity that megapixel offers.”  To date, Carlile has installed a mix of IQeye Sentinels and Alliance domes at its expansive warehouse, loading, and administrative facilities located in Anchorage and Fairbanks. Both the Tacoma and Houston locations are slated for installation of over 100 cameras in the next few months. Camera data is managed by Milestone open platform video management software.

Eugene O’Neal and his team perform a combination of live video monitoring and incident review of all the action in and around their freight terminals at all times. “These cameras have paid for themselves in no time,” said O’Neal. “In our business, there are a good number of freight claim situations and they can add up to a lot of money. With these crystal clear images, I know what really happened. I’ve got proof.”

Carlile moves everything from gas and oil equipment modules to general freight commodities to fish. Their 75+ 3-megapixel IQeye Sentinels and Alliances at both Carlile locations enable them to see it all and at the level of clarity they demand.

“There is absolutely no comparison to any camera systems we’ve used in the past. We’ll use IQeye cameras at all 10 of our terminal locations. It’s unbelievable the quality you can get—right down the to the licence plate level,” O’Neal concluded.
