Camco to provide TSA terminals with automated solutions

Terminal Service Austria (TSA), a business division of federal railways ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG, has selected Camco Technologies to automate the systems of three TSA terminals.

Each of the Wolfurt, Wels and Vienna-South TSA intermodal terminals will integrate two truck video gates as well as in and outbound kiosk for automated checks for trucks and cargo.

For train wagon and cargo registration, the three transshipment facilities will rely on the Camco Technologies rail camera portal, while one rail video gate will be deployed at each end of the terminal. "Hardware, Gate Operating System (GOS) and rail portal software will integrate in the KLV 2000 TSA terminal operating system," said the terminal automation solutions provider, Camco, in its announcement.

"Their [Camco] solutions fit exactly in what we need to leapfrog towards the digitalisation of our combined transport infrastructure," pointed out Dr. Renate Glisic, head of TSA.

Additionally, the Camco Technologies truck and rail portals are equipped with Artificial Intelligence (AI) embedded cameras, capable of registering container, trailer and rail wagon ID, ISO code, weight info and door direction.

Furthermore, dedicated engines based on convolutional neural networks and optical character recognition (OCR) technology immediately start processing after image acquisition. The data is sent to the terminal operating system KLV 2000 allowing instant processing of freight and trains increasing overall terminal efficiency.

"The use of the new technology will further improve the capacity, efficiency and quality of our terminal services in the future," said Dr. Johann Pluy, member of the board of directors of ÖBB Infrastruktur.

Jan Bossens, CEO of Camco Technologies, added, "We are convinced this partnership will result in higher efficiency of operations and contribute to the ÖBB-Infrastruktur customer experience."

TSA (Terminal Service Austria) operates a total of five intermodal terminals across Austria offering road and rail connections to the European markets. In 2020, the TSA cargo volume handled as unaccompanied combined transport, exceeded 475,000 shipments of containers, swap bodies and semi-trailers.
