Data processing with Train Gate Operator application

Before the OCR data is sent to the Terminal Operating System (TOS), the Rail Gate Operator application allows staff to remotely and visually inspect the condition of each container, semi-trailer and railcar and validate the processed data.

The validation process takes only a few minutes and can be performed by a gate clerk. The Camco Train Gate Operator software enables exception handling of multiple rail portals even from one single remote location. Once the data has been validated, the processed data is sent to the TOS.

The Camco OCR Rail portal is capable of reading:

  • Container number and ISO code
  • Semi-Trailer number
  • Railcar number
  • Dangerous Goods label (IMDG)
  • Container door direction

Apart from railcar or cargo identification, the camera provides sharp pictures enabling easy damage inspection and effective claims management.

Pictures for condition recording are also available. Camco Crane OCR allows to register container and semi-trailer moves by cantilever ARMG cranes. All OCR hardware comes with appropriate software applications for exception handling and condition recording and integrate seamlessly with the Terminal Operating System.
