 White Papers


 White papers offer an insight into common port and terminal technology or methods that can provide a solution.


 This page contains authoritative reports and guides to help readers review the application of technology to the daily operation of a container terminal.


 All documents are in Adobe PDF format.

Improving Straddle Carrier safety through operational visibility and transparency


In a typical Straddle Carrier operation, what procedures/methods can be put in place to move towards a zero accident policy?


It goes without saying that the operator should be properly trained. But how do you make sure that it is the trained operator that is driving, and what mechanisms can you put in place to monitor and review the safe operation of the equipment?


Waiting for the next accident is not an option.



Port radio data networks - back to the future


Can middleware designed for terminal operations provide a wider technology choice?


Container terminals and port facilities are generally busy areas with the movement of cargo on and off the facility, and using heavy plant and equipment to handle the cargo.


It is therefore not really a surprise that the use of radio frequency (RF) communications in this environment is quite widespread in order to aid the efficient management and monitoring of the cargo movements and status of the equipment and plant.


Automated Data Capture Systems


Allan Jones, Head of Business Development, reviews the use of automated data capture to provide accurate, real-time information to enable the TOS to better manage the terminals operations, by making more timely and effective decisions.
