Automated gate systems (AGS) have made a significant impact at major marine and rail terminals needing to improve efficiency and cargo velocity. One problem with AGSs has been how to make them affordable for smaller inland depots struggling to manually track growing volumes. Until now. Nascent has just solved the problem without compromising on the power of the technology.
ReadyGate is the new AGS from Nascent that is full-featured, remotely managed, and highly cost-effective for smaller, typically leased sites. Its capabilities include:
- Fully automated gate control to identify and process trucks and equipment within seconds
- No need for security guards working the lanes, as ReadyGate software enables remote exception management
- Elimination of manual data errors from the gate process
- Limited site prep and physical infrastructure, and no trenching or permitting required
- Integrates seamlessly with your existing YMS, TOS or WMS,ensuring all moves are validated automatically.
With ReadyGate, leased and growing facilities can automate and secure their truck gates just as the bigger players do. The system is available using flexible purchase and leasing options sidestepping the need for any upfront capital expenditures. And for those operating multiple locations, ReadyGate allows you to operate all facilities remotely. This is made possible through integration with SYNAPSE, Nascent’s remote exception control software.
Of course, whenever new technology comes out to replace something facility managers have been handling manually, there are always questions. Can I figure it out? Will it work as fast as my manual system? Automated gates are there for your drivers 24/7/365. They don’t take sick days or vacation days, and they don’t go home at 5 p.m., so you can always keep goods moving. Meanwhile, all the information you need about which assets are where is logged automatically in the system.
When customers arrive with cargo, they scan a QR code or enter an access code at the kiosk. After validation That produces the green light for the driver. It also instantly updates all records so inventory and billing information are available in real time.
As for exceptions, they are routed to a remote guard who can talk to the driver and see all the images the system has collected, so the flow of traffic remains quick and efficient, and congestion is much less than it was under the manual system.
ReadyGate is ready for leased and low-volume facilities, who deserve the benefit of this technology as much as anyone else. Now they can have it.
