AUTOMATIC CAR IDENTIFICATION AT THE HANSAPORT HAMBOURG BULK-FREIGHT TERMINAL

EINSATZ EINER AUTOMATISCHEN WAGENERKENNUNG BEI DER MASSENGUTUMSCHLAGANLAGE HANSAPORT

One of the main functions of the Hansaport bulk-freight terminal in Hambourg is the automated transshipment of bulk cargoes brought by sea-going ships, with intermediate storage, into small cargo parcels for onward movement by inland transport. Freight costs are kept low by using merry-go-round block trains. Wagon numbers and sequence are recorded upon the arrival of a train by a Siemens SICARID-ACI 500 automatic identification system, so that loading can proceed shortly afterwards in accordance with the programme set up in the central computer. Automatic vehicle identification saves much time and is also more reliable than the manual method hitherto used.
