Certus for Maher

Certus Port Automation has won a contract to install a new gate automation system at Maher Terminals facility in Newark New Jersey

The contract is for the “replacement and upgrade of the existing truck gate automation systems with new features and functionalities”. Maher’s current gate system was delivered by SAIC, after it was awarded a contract for its Intelligent Intermodal Solutions” back in 2003.  SAIC has since stopped tendering for new business in the gate automation market, and more recently, it is believed, stopped supporting existing installations.

Phase 1 of the project at Maher includes renewal of the OCR Portals for inbound and outbound traffic as well as replacement of the driver pedestals and related equipment throughout the facility.  “Furthermore Certus will be implementing its proprietary PASS software suite as middleware solution, collecting data from numerous sensors, processing it and delivering the value added information onwards to the TOS” Certus stated. 

“We’re very excited to bring our latest technology to MAHER TERMINALS” said Leander de Nooijer, President of Certus.  “A major US port operator like Maher in full daily operation challenges us to be smart in implementation of new technology without interrupting the day to day ongoing operation”.  Certus will follow a "staged implementation plan", bringing new systems live in parallel with existing systems.

Aaron Newton, Vice President of Sales and Marketing from Mi-Jack Products, the Certus representative for sales and service in North America, added “We are looking forward to continuing our strong relationship as a technical solutions provider with Maher Terminals. In 2012 we installed Mi-Jack’s PDS solution Mi-Star and now we are excited to continue with the gate automation systems.” 

The project also includes the introdution of new models for faster and more efficient gate processes.“Together with Maher Terminals, supported by TBA, we’re analysing current operations and exploring opportunities to bring in ideas and additional technology in order for Maher to increase volume, throughput and service levels to the trucking community” said De 

Laura Markham, VP IT Operations stated “We did a thorough search, and concluded that CERTUS offers Maher Terminals the best opportunity to upgrade to the most modern and efficient gate systems available today."
