Ashdod, Israel (PortSEurope) September 11, 2017 – The Ashdod Port Company has recently completed a large and complex project of upgrading the gate system at the port, which includes automated processes for drivers. The goal of the project is to streamline and shorten the processes of entry and exit of trucks at port gates, and to improve service to the public. The main change is that more processes
will be done automatically and independently by the driver. For example, at the security gate at the port, the driver will be identified and checked by mechanical means and will enter the port completely independently according to the instructions that appear on the gate screen. For example: “Continue to the front gate,” continue to a security check, “and the like. At the front gate, while weighing the truck, the driver will choose to continue the activity at the port (containers/general cargo, import/export) and produce a work card using a touch screen. When finished, the driver will be prompted where to proceed (main/automatic or manual). At each stage the driver will have a human factor that will assist him in the process if necessary. The Ashdod port company said, “As part of improving the service for the drivers at the port of Ashdod, the port company has acquired advanced technological equipment that will enable the driver to work independently to issue the work card.
