The flagship terminal of International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI), Manila International Container Terminal (MICT) is partnering with Intelligent E-Processes Technologies Corp. (IETC).
IETC is a subsidiary of San Miguel Corporation that manages Autosweep RFID in order to enable a faster, more seamless gate process for trucks at the port of Manila in the Philippines.
In particular, 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.
Additionally, IETC is deploying personnel at MICT for May to offer free Autosweep tag installation for trucks transacting at the terminal.
The hassle-free enrolment also enables customers to immediately use RFID lanes at SMC-operated toll roads, namely the South Luzon Expressway, Skyway, NAIA Expressway, Southern Tagalog Arterial Road Tollway and Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway for faster travel time.
"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," commented Reynaldo Mark Cruz Jr., MICT Information Technology Systems and Services director.
He added, "There were even trucks that just use laminated paper to display their MV file numbers."
