Introducing CONPDS Tracker: Revolutionizing Container Depot Operations

CONPDS Tracker is an advanced solution that is set to revolutionize the container depot industry. CONPDS Tracker is a comprehensive system that eliminates manual errors, enhances overall efficiency, and is designed to streamline and optimize container storage and management processes.

By integrating CONPDS Tracker with standard surveillance cameras, container depots can benefit from improved accuracy, streamlined operations, and reduced errors throughout the container handling process. Our cutting-edge technology introduces a new efficiency level to the logistics industry, ensuring containers are handled with the utmost care and precision.

Container depots are secure areas dedicated to the storage and servicing of containers. As trucks enter or exit these depots with containers, they undergo a gate-in or gate-out process. This is where CONPDS Tracker plays a crucial role. Upon arrival, the container is automatically registered, and with seamless integration, the depot management system can be updated, fully automating the gate-in process. When a customer requires a container, a booking is made, and the depot obtains information such as the container type, the license plate of the truck assigned to pick up the container, and the driver's name. Upon the truck's arrival at the depot, the container is loaded onto it, and the driver proceeds towards the gate-out. This entire process is known as an interchange. CONPDS Tracker recognizes the license plate and loaded container number at the exit. A check is then performed in the depot management system to verify that everything matches before the truck is allowed to gate out. This verification process ensures that the containers released during the booking are indeed loaded onto the correct truck, avoiding potentially costly mistakes.

Currently, many depots rely on manual processes for these operations. Manual readings and data entry are prone to errors, including typographical mistakes. CONPDS Tracker addresses these challenges with a state-of-the-art setup comprising three cameras: one on the side, one in the front, and one at the rear.

Our system is installed on a Windows or Linux machine and requires a GPU for video analytics. Installation and initial configuration can be completed in just a few minutes.

Next, the system automatically starts detecting container-like objects in the video stream. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology is employed to extract the actual container number from the detected area if any are found. The obtained data is distributed and published using the MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport) protocol, which interfaces our system and customer systems. Using our MQTT client, data can be distributed to databases, emails, Business Intelligence (BI) tools, and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. We also aid in implementing these integrations. Customers using the depot management system, DepotMaster, can benefit from an out-of-the-box integration that fully automates booking to interchange, including the gate-in and gate-out processes.

Additionally, we offer an out-of-the-box integration with the VIVOTEK VAST 2.0 video management system. When a container number is identified, it can be bookmarked in the recorded video, allowing users to review historic footage manually if needed.

"We are thrilled to introduce CONPDS Tracker, a game-changer in the container depot industry," said Morten Steen Sondergaard, CEO at CONPDS. "Our solution empowers any depot to enhance operational efficiency, reduce errors, and improve overall customer satisfaction. We believe that CONPDS Tracker will revolutionize the way container depots operate," says Managing Director at CONPDS Morten Steen Søndergaard.

The system can be obtained directly from CONPDS or through a network of established external sales offices.
