EUROGATE Container Terminal Hamburg enables fully digital verification of truck drivers

News

For the drivers, this means fewer waiting times and greater safety. It is no longer necessary to leave the vehicle, except for the loading.

From 20 March, the GATE PASS solution from CONROO will be introduced at EUROGATE Container Terminal Hamburg (CTH), which, among other things, enables fully digital verification of truck drivers. The aim is more efficiency and greater security throughout the entire process at EUROGATE container terminals.

The “GATE PASS”, the digital solution developed by CONROO in close cooperation with EUROGATE for identifying truck drivers at the pick-up or delivery point, guarantees entry and departure without delays. The previous access authorization, the analogue “trucker card”, will lose its validity from 2 May 2024 at the EUROGATE site in Hamburg and will be replaced by the CONROO GATE PASS. Bremerhaven and Wilhelmshaven will follow immediately, as will other international EUROGATE locations.

“Today we are taking more than just a step forward. By introducing the CONROO solution across all locations, we are setting new standards for the entire EUROGATE Group. But it also sends out a signal to other sea and hinterland terminals. Ultimately, everyone can benefit from the more efficient exchange of information along the entire supply chain,” explains Michael Blach, Chairman of the EUROGATE Group Management Board.

 Efficiency and security

The fully digital GATE PASS not only ensures greater efficiency but also significantly more security throughout terminal operations. The app solution works on all common mobile devices and covers the entire process, from registration and fully digital driver verification to DAKOSY route planning (TR02) and on-site instructions.

The system has numerous interfaces that integrate all the players involved along the logistics chain. These include TMS, platforms such as driveMybox as well as depots and warehouses. CONROO always acts as an independent and neutral partner in terms of location. The new “GATE PASS” app solution will be gradually introduced at all of the EUROGATE Group’s German terminal locations in spring 2024.

“We are relying on a solution that has proven itself at hinterland terminals and depots and are using the digitalization of the trucker card to significantly improve processes at the terminal for truck drivers and us as terminal operators,” explains Jannis Grantz, Project Manager at the EUROGATE Group.

More sustainability and safety

The GATE PASS makes the time-consuming and paper-intensive administrative process of registering truck drivers obsolete. At the same time, the processing of transport orders is made considerably easier and faster thanks to early information and synchronization regarding the gate and lanes.

For the drivers, this means fewer queues and waiting times, more time for other jobs and greater safety, as it is no longer necessary to leave the vehicle at the terminal – except for the loading process. EUROGATE and CONROO are thus contributing to greater sustainability and safety along the supply chain.

“The further development of the CONROO solution and connection of seaport terminals creates substantial added value for truck drivers, hauliers and terminal operators. Ultimately, the entire supply chain benefits from the digital connection between shippers and truck drivers that we create with CONROO CONNECT, our truck visit system. Together with Markus Hartung, Co-Founder and CTO, we launched CONROO in the hinterland in 2021 and are delighted to now also be able to serve seaport terminals,” adds Felix Paul Czerny, Co-Founder and CEO of CONROO.

EUROGATE operates container terminals in five countries in Europe and North Africa.
