Rail CCR

Automatic container recognition for a complete rail access tracking

Container accesses by rail can be added to Orbita Ports&Terminals systems for a complete tracking and traceability of containers inside a port or terminal.

Train container identification

Orbita RailCCR operates while a train passes through a rail area at the entrance or exit points. The system is able to provide all the access required data such as container identification, exact time and date of a container passing by the OCR portal as well as its position. All these information is sent to the Terminal Operating System (TOS) via XML interfaces, WebServices or any other usual communications protocol. This automated procedure will allow a controlled authorization to access the terminal.

As the train passes by the identification portal, the system automatically stores images and videos at the same time it detects and processes container codes and the container position within a convoy.

Different mechanical architectures are available to adapt them to several rail configurations.


  • Container movement by train in ports, marine and rail terminals
  • Border crossings and customs gates
  • Access to logistics parks

Features and benefits
