APS Technology to provide terminal-wide OCR Solutions for TraPac Automated Terminal

06.02.2013 – APS Technology Group, Inc. announced it has been selected by TraPac Inc. to provide a complete optical character recognition (OCR) solution for every entry and exit point for their newly redesigned automated terminal in Los Angeles, CA. The APS solutions will help TraPac meet its goal of becoming the first fully automated marine terminal in the United States.

To complete its transition to a fully automated terminal, TraPac has chosen APS solutions for its redesigned gate, crane and rail areas. At the 18 truck gates, APS will deploy its latest OCR portal systems complete with high-resolution OCR imaging technology. The terminal will also install APS’ proven crane OCR solutions on ten ship-to-shore cranes being modified to add secure platforms to accommodate the world’s largest container ships while ensuring human safety. The crane solution will combine cameras mounted on both the platform and the legs of the crane to image the container and enable automated identification and door direction of each unit handled. APS will also deploy two rail OCR portals and its patented Rail Tracking System, which will automatically identify train inventory, line order and track location of all container-laden railcars as they enter, exit and move within the rail yard.

“TraPac has long embraced technology in our facilities to help deliver more efficient and safe operations for our customers and employees,” said John Alvarez Director of Information Technology at TraPac. “Since 2005 APS has been a key partner of ours and we’re excited to have their solutions at the core of our operations as we strive to become the first fully automated terminal in the United States.”
