Importance Of Port Automation
One of the most critical junctures in modern container shipping occurs on land — at the marine terminal where 30 ton-cargo containers must be unloaded, moved and stacked in the open, and re-shipped over land.
These marine terminals, characterised by open areas as large as and expensive logistics equipment, are beginning to upgrade their technology to provide more real-time, remote instructions for machine operators, thus expediting container logistics and providing better container tracking for security reasons. Now Suraj Informatics ’s Network Solution enables these shipping terminals to replace slow and limited narrowband with wireless connectivity with 2.4/ 5.8 GHz Wi-Fi.
Moving among the containers, workers will find that their Wi-Fi enabled handheld devices receive and transmit information quickly and easily. With Suraj informatics, workers also do not have to search for hot spots of connectivity, since the entire terminal has been blanketed with Suraj Wi-Fi coverage. The managers now have real time information about the condition, security, and location of a single container, as well as a big picture view of the entire logistics operation without delay from slow data rates or workers positioned in large gaps of connectivity.
We understand the specific requirements of Ports/CFS and Shipping Industry. We help them to plan and build a stable, robust, scalable and flexible IT and Telecom Infrastructure to reduce their cost of operations and increase the productivity.
