Fast Search Facility Improves Security At Busy Freight Terminal

Axis Communications : 16 December, 2010  (Application Story)
The Manchester terminal of Freightliner gains IP surveillance from Axis Communications to improve vehicle throughput and improve search facilities for faster resolution of security issues
Axis Communications has provided a new IP Surveillance system at Freightliner's Manchester terminal which allows users to quickly search and access vital footage and boost security operations.

Freightliner, a leading intermodal rail freight operator in the UK, has improved surveillance at its Manchester terminal by replacing an analogue system with 13 Axis 211 and Axis P1343 Network Cameras. The cameras are in strategic locations so as to be able to record registration plates and container IDs as vehicles arrive and leave the terminal. They are also used for security purposes at the terminal gates.

Andy Murphy, deputy general manager, terminals said: "The cameras have helped us to streamline our operations. For example, we can now monitor traffic queues at the gates and it also helps us plan the allocation of equipment around the site, as the cameras can monitor what is needed in a specific location. The image quality is excellent and the night time images have also surprised us."

Axis 233D and Axis 232D Network Dome Cameras provide the terminal's managers with an overview of operations across the site and the Axis P3343-VE Network Camera records images of the drivers. Axis Camera Station is used to view footage simultaneously and allows the end user to quickly locate and distribute footage.

In the event of a claim being made against Freightliner for damage to containers, the system allows managers to quickly establish if it is genuine or if the container was already damaged on arrival. Andy Murphy continues: "In the past, searching for a specific piece of footage has been extremely time-consuming. We needed a solution that would allow us to speed up this process and share footage electronically with others quickly and easily. All of our cameras have motion detection which also allows our operators to monitor in real time when a situation arises."

Running the system in-house coupled with the quality and durability of the cameras and software, means that Freightliner's maintenance costs have been significantly reduced. NW Systems Group, an Axis Solution Gold Partner, has already successfully upgraded the surveillance systems across many of the Freightliner sites.
