APM Terminals Aarhus launches first phase of gate automation

The first phase of the implementation of the new automated gate complex at APM Terminals Aarhus, Denmark is completed. With this new gate, the terminal has taken an important step towards becoming an even more digitized facility. 

Initiated in 2019, the US$3 million project will further improve terminal efficiency using advanced technologies. Construction works have just been completed and trucks entering and leaving the terminal now drive through the gate complex.

“With the opening of our new gate, we have passed another important milestone towards full gate automation in 2021. With the new gate setup we are significantly improving the flow of cargo into the terminal which will, when fully implemented, increase customer service and efficiency”, shares Dennis Olesen, Managing Director of APM Terminals Nordics.

CCTV for OOG exception handling

The launch of Phase 1 of the project initiates the next stage, where full automation of the gates will be tested by automation engineers using live truck traffic. This includes Optical Camera Recognition (OCR), license plate recognition cameras and CCTV cameras for exception handling of OOG traffic by gate clerks. 

The automated gate, along with the upcoming upgrade of the Terminal Operating System, will make it possible to include more digital solutions in the future, such as a digital Truck Appointment System. All systems will be linked to the terminal’s new Navis N4 Terminal Operating System (TOS), the leading and most widely used terminal operating system globally, which has become a standard at APM Terminals.

“We will continue to invest in innovation of our business, so we can continue to improve our service level and cater for our customers’ growth”, adds Dennis Olesen.

The automated Gate Operating System is scheduled to be operational by mid-2021.
