With labor shortages, the need to optimize warehouse space and control rising costs has never been greater. Many companies are looking for ways to reduce costs and improve efficiency. But where do you start? How can you be sure that the changes you make will actually save you time and money?
As a transportation company, you have a lot of data – whether it’s data from your purchase orders or even data captured by your security cameras. Did you know that this data can be used to better plan your logistics operations and improve your efficiency through artificial intelligence?
If you have security cameras, you can film trucks coming in and out, with and without trailers. But, few companies use this information to better manage their operations.
In fact, by using artificial intelligence and computer vision, this information can be used to:
- Increase visibility at entry and exit points
- Collect information on assets and merchandise
- Automatically produce detailed entry and exit records
- Locate trailer or container inventory quickly
- Enhance security to reduce loss and theft
Real-time visibility in your yard
Easily integrated with existing camera infrastructure, Nuvoola’s LUKE AI for MDC uses computer vision to digitize and centralize real-time information such as truck arrivals and departures, trailer and container numbers, as well as purchase orders. For example, when a truck arrives, the system uses cameras at the entrances to automatically detect and identify drivers, trucks, trailers and containers. All information is captured and centralized on the LUKE AI platform, giving managers complete visibility into what is entering and leaving their site.
By being able to quickly identify the location of asset inventory, shipping teams and key personnel can save time while ensuring that customers are satisfied more quickly.
Automate the interaction with drivers entering your site
This data can also be used to provide a location for drivers arriving at the facility.
Nuvoola designed a solution involving a self-service kiosk installed at the gate to automate driver and vehicle identification. With a self-service kiosk, drivers can quickly and easily identify themselves without the need for an employee to get involved. The kiosks can also interact with drivers, telling them where to go once they are identified. This reduces check-in time while providing secure access to the site without the need for someone present at each gate.
In conclusion, by using the data you already have, you can improve operations and security while reducing manual tasks. The benefits are obvious. So why not talk to us? You might be surprised at the impact it can have.
