ISO Container Code Recognition on PC and embedded.

There are tens of millions of containers stacked in depots or in transit around the world by sea, rail or road and VaxOCR Container Code Recognition helps track and identify them as they move around or are loaded onto vehicles.

The engine reads both horizontal and vertical codes and reports the container code number along with other metadata such as time, date, GPS position, confidence etc. The data provided includes the owner code, owner city, container type and dimensions to aid tracking and identification.  

VaxOCR Container Code Recognition provides automatic detection and logging of containers on entry, between zones, during processes and on exit from Air and Sea ports automating and streamlining processes, ensuring Health & Safety, insurance and logistical chain management. Together creating efficient and secure transportation networks of the highest performance.
