Manila International Container Terminal teamed up with Intelligent E-Processes Technologies Corp., a subsidiary of San Miguel Corp. that manages Autosweep RFID, to enable a faster, more seamless gate process for trucks at the Port of Manila.
The partnership will enable RFID scanners at the terminal gates to read Autosweep tags and match the trucks’ plate numbers, resulting in faster gate access and process.
“Our investment in RFID technology is part of our constant effort to optimize the flow of cargo to and from the terminal. Over the years, one of the challenges we experienced with our automated gates is the low success rate of our license plate recognition cameras due to the poor condition of the plates mounted on some trucks. There were even trucks that just use laminated paper to display their MV file numbers,” said MICT information technology systems and services director Reynaldo Mark Cruz Jr. said.
“Using Autosweep’s RFID tags as a second alternative to identifying trucks addresses this problem and speeds up our gate operations,” he said.
IETC is deploying personnel at MICT in May to offer free Autosweep tag installation for trucks transacting at the terminal.
