Trucks waiting at Port terminal for exit and entry is a common sign all over the globe. Containers need to be identified, numbers to be taken down and other processes to be followed before the goods can be loaded or unloaded and the supply chain can continue seamlessly. But thanks to web 3.0, now this line-up of trucks and processes can both be shortened. With terminal gate automation, digital tools and systems can be used to track, identify and check on containers and equipment.
In fact, AI based gate automation OCR facilitates easy and accurate recognition of containers. This directly results in spending less on manpower, with costs reducing by a 3rd for ports and container terminals.
So What is OCR?
OCR or optical character recognition is a technology that converts any kind of image with written text into machine readable text data. No matter what image your camera grabs, OCR systems can convert them into data that other systems can use.
