Swifter HGV handling in Vienna
Austria’s largest trimodal container terminal, Wiencont in the inland port of Freudenau in Vienna, has installed a photo-in gate application that speeds up truck handling. The system can be used to notify the arrival of an HGV and its load in advance. The load units are checked in the check-in lanes, whilst the driver can log in at the self-check-in kiosk where he will be automatically assigned to an appropriate truck stop.
State-of-the-art cameras in two exit lanes scan the outbound lorries and compare them with the stored data. If the data matches, the vehicles are allowed to leave the terminal. (ben)
