Advanced Consulting and HTS awarded an OCR project for 53 Cranes by the Port Authority of Panama

11.02.2013 – HTS announced that the Port Authority of Panama has awarded Advanced Consulting– a Panamanian IT consulting company who will prime the project, and HTS, the OCR provider – a project to implement OCR on 53 cranes spread over 4 terminals in Panama.

The Port Authority of Panama (AMP) is implementing an automated system with the purpose of providing additional and irrefutable support to the payments made by the terminal operators to the Panamanian Port Authority, in compliance with today’s government “Contraloria” requirements. Currently, there is no system to audit data, and the introduction of an automated system will enable a streamlined solution of the audit process. Additionally, statistics regarding the movement of containers will be available in real-time, whereas currently the information is provided on a monthly basis.

The crane OCR systems will capture, recognize and read the specific number unique to each and every container during discharge and load operations, without human intervention, as they are handled by the ship to shore cranes.

Since the Panama Port Authority is primarily interested in automating the counting of container moves and each container is only counted once although handled twice (discharge and load), it is critical for the system to accurately identify the container number. Terminal operators may pursue additional functionalities associated with the OCR systems in the future to automate business processes on the waterside operations.

“HTS is honored to be chosen by the Port Authority of Panama for this crucial project, and it underscores the leadership position HTS holds in the international marketplace for its rich suite of Crane OCR solutions.” Said Benjie Wells, VP of Cargo Systems, HTS.
