Gate Automation mit OCR-Technologien Workshop (DE)

ntermodale-/KV-Terminals werden durch steigende Anforderungen an den Check-in und die Dokumentation ihrer Gate-Abläufe herausgefordert, um die Sicherheit und den Haftungs-übergang zu gewährleisten. Die Europäische Norm EN 13044 (2010) standardisiert die Identifikation Intermodaler Ladeeinheiten. Vor diesem Hintergrund wurden Video-/Kamera-Portale und optische Bilderkennungstechnologien (OCR-technologies) in vielen Häfen aber auch schon einigen Binnenterminals implementiert.
Schlüsselnutzer und Hersteller möchten ihre Erfahrungen mit Ihnen austauschen und wir laden Sie daher herzlich ein zu unserem Tages-Workshop zum Thema “Gate-Automation mit OCR-Technologien” am 17.Oktober 2013 in Mannheim, Deutschland.

Gate Automation with OCR-Technologies Workshop

Intermodal terminals are challenged by increasing requirements for checking and documenting their gate processes. It is not only that safety and security are relevant but also the liability change. The European Norm EN 13044 (2010) standardizes the identification of intermodal loading units. Against that background camera portals and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technologies have been implemented in numerous ports, but also some continental intermodal terminals.
Key users and their suppliers would like to share their experiences with you and we kindly invite you to attend our one day workshop on “Gate automation with OCR-technologies” on 17.Oktober 2013, in Mannheim, Germany.

ILU-Code Information for Terminal Operators

Even if the the ILU-Code implementation has to be done by owners of (continental) intermodal transport units (e.g. semi-trailers and and swap bodies) it is also important for the managers of intermodal terminals. The information attached explains the background and necessary steps the terminals should consider to be prepared for July 2014 when the ILU-code shall be used widely according to the implementation plan of the UIC railways and UIRR operators.

ILU Code Implementation has started

A new coding system for intermodal loading units (ILU) was introduced according to the European standard EN13044 since July 2011.
Compatible with the BIC-Code for ISO containers the ILU-Code allows a unified identification of the owner of intermodal loading units (mainly swap bodies and semi-trailers) circulating within the European region.
The terminal operators support the implementation of the ILU-Code.
As administrator of the ILU-Code, UIRR is issuing the Codes through the website www.ilu-code.eu.
