S2 Smart Depot the greatest paradigm shift that has ever taken place in Container Depot and Port Yard management

Using our unique Global GPS RTK systems and advanced global software algorithms you can auto record the container placement position, angle, level anywhere in the yard / depot. Huge time saver for lifter operators plus you will automatically know exactly where every container is located, and be able to 'see' through stacks with our World First animated 3D Visual Depot. Enhanced Depot utilisation - you will be able to store more boxes in the same area.


 S2 Kiosk

The Yard Manager Kiosk applications allow for drivers to enter the depot using their booking number. Bookings are validated, Boom Gate activated,  and a Lifter Job is then created notifying the Hoist / RTG operator that a truck has arrived and requires a container movement.  Optionally unmanned Kiosk entry by Driver or OCR validation.  Creates a Truck queue for the Lifters.


S2 Lifter Job Scheduling

The Yard Manager application runs from inside either a Lifter hoist or RTG gantry, normally installed in a ruggedised tablet.  The lifter drivers will see a list of pickup / dropoff jobs from the Kiosk on their in-cab mobile computers
[ being trucks that have passed in through the boom gate ] , pick a job and unload or load as required, visually verifying the Carrier / Rego / Container No. [ if a dropoff ] and recording the Container No. if a Release. Includes Yard Job scheduling, auto Lifter allocations, auto Yard location allocations.
