Camco Technologies will supply its Rail OCR Portal technology for the Port of Koper
Camco is partnering with Port of Koper to implement automated identification of container and rail wagon data.
Koper has received funding from the European Regional Development Fund via a COMODALCE project under the Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE programme. As Camco explains, the COMODALCE project “seeks to increase cooperation and coordination among multimodal freight transport stakeholders in Central Europe, using innovative ICT systems. As part of one of the COMOLDACE pilot activities, the port of Koper will provide a tool to streamline and speed-up data exchange. The equipment to be provided by Luka Koper will be intended for reading of containers and wagons during the railway transport from and to the port. Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE co-funds 85% of project’s activities through the COMODALCE project”.
Camco will provide its Rail OCR portal for the automatic inventory and registration of all containers and rail wagons entering or leaving the Port of Koper. “The Camco Technologies rail portal is equipped with AI embedded cameras, capable of registering container, trailer and rail wagon ID, ISO code, weight info and door direction. Dedicated engines based on convolutional neural networks and OCR technology immediately start processing after image acquisition. The data is sent to the Terminal Operating System (TOS) increasing overall terminal efficiency. Camco Technologies Rail OCR has been implemented in +100 intermodal terminals,” Camco said.
The Port of Koper TOS is supplied by Tideworks Technology.
“With the investments under our Strategic Business Plan 2020-2025 strongly focused on adoption of new technologies, Port of Koper will increase capacity and provide efficient, reliable and high-quality services to our partners,” said Rok Grdina, CIO & CQO of Port of Koper. “We are convinced Camco Technologies will help us in achieving this goal on the road of digital transformation.”
Jan Bossens, CEO Camco Technologies added: “Digital transformation is entering the logistics industry through the front door and Port of Koper is embracing this evolution. We are delighted to have been selected automation partner in this ambitious project, we are convinced our solutions will help Port of Koper increase cost efficiency through automation.”
