New gate system speeds Cork boxes

[ October 25, 2016   //   ]

The Port of Cork has put a new €750,000 automated gate operating system into operation at its Tivoli Container – the first of its kind in Ireland.

Cork has also implemented an integrated IT access management system that will improve transactions for  hauliers at the terminal gate. The new system replaces the former gate-in and gate-out procedure, and included a joint collaboration between the port and Customs & Revenue to establish a customs clearance verification system.

It will record important data for all deliveries and collections at the Terminal, including license plates, container details, container damages and security seal presence. In the event of any difficulty, the new system contains a problem resolution area where any potential issues encountered by the haulier can be addressed prior to containers being delivered and/or collected.
