DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF A PILOT TERMINAL CONTROL SYSTEM (TCS) WITH AUTOMATIC CONTAINER IDENTIFICATION

Terminal Control Systems (TCS) employing Automatic Container Identification (ACI) employs optical scanning devices that read color code labels applied to marine freight containers. In a marine terminal, data from the scanners on inbound and outbound container movements, handled by rail or truck, and units being loaded and discharged from containerships, are transmitted directly to a central computer for on-line/real-time terminal control, terminal security and management reports.
