US container depot uses position detection system

ContainerTrac : 13 March, 2008  (Application Story)
Container tracking technology to be used at Oakland International Container Terminal to track position and movement of containers.
ContainerTrac has reached agreement with SSA Terminals to install its cell-level accurate Position Detection System (PDS) at SSA Terminals' Port of Oakland International Container Terminal (OICT). The implementation will begin in spring 2008, and will include integration with SSA Terminals' terminal operating system (TOS) from Tideworks Technology.

"We anticipate the deployment of ContainerTrac's PDS at OICT will have significant impact on improving the efficiency of our operations," said SSA Containers President Ed DeNike. "The ability to accurately capture the placement and movement of containers in our seaport locations is increasingly important, especially with ever-growing volumes and our ongoing commitment to port security. ContainerTrac has presented a unique and innovative solution that can deliver cost effective results in the field, and we're excited to begin our migration to its PDS."

ContainerTrac's PDS enables automated position identification to facilitate immediate retrieval of containers while they are in densely stacked seaport and rail facilities. There is a significant science and engineering gap between the accuracy of identification systems at the gate and the accuracy of those same systems as positioning solutions in the yard.

ContainerTrac's patented PDS solution gives yard operators the ability to automate the inventorying function which, until now, has required manual support.

"We are excited to launch our new PDS solution with market leader SSA Terminals," said Larry Henry, CEO of ContainerTrac. "We are confident this deployment will greatly increase the efficient flowthrough of containers for SSA Terminals, as well as improve overall homeland security. In addition, we're eager to demonstrate to the industry that tight integration with the SSATerminals/Tideworks' TOS will vastly improve the asset visibility and management of terminal operations."
