APM TERMINALS - TCB BARCELONA




AUTOMATION OF 10 LANE CONTAINER TERMINAL ENTRY AND EXIT GATE

PORT OF BARCELONA, SPAIN

TCB container terminal is one of the main logistic platforms in the Mediterranean Sea. Located in the Port of Barcelona, the terminal capacity is more than 1.3 million TEU 
and it focuses on intermodal container traffic throughout South Europe.

As a necessary improvement in order to enhance the gates performance, as well as reduce errors and consequently ensure a high reliability, TCB decided to implement 
gates automation technology. 

By increasing the vehicle flow at the 6 entry and 4 exit lanes, they would achieve accurate time rates and operative efficiency.

The turn-key project that Orbita planned for TCB included engineering, software development, installation, testing and commissioning of a gate automation solution for 
CCR recognition of containers and vehicles accessing the terminal. Moreover, the required integration with the Terminal Operating System (TOS) would be completely defined.

Tracking and traceability of vehicles and containers was obtained by means of Orbita Gate Operating System, which enhances continuously to provide the best results to 
the bespoke solution designed for achieving client specifications.
