Port of Houston Authority (PHA) is planning to implement an APS Gate OCR Portal to automate equipment identification, traffic processing and damage inspection imaging at the new entry gate complex of its Bayport container terminal in Houston, US.

The APS Technology will provide optical character recognition (OCR) and automation technology solutions for marine and intermodal container terminals.

APS will provide 2D optical tags for identification and its MatchMaker tractor identification solution to automatically associate containers to the trailer or other container transport vehicles.

The Port of Houston will add six additional portals to process entering trucks, adding to the six existing lanes of Gate OCR installed at Bayport.

The APS Gate OCR solution will be integrated with the Navis N4 gate system to enable the automatic gate processing functions without human interaction.
