In December 2018, a complex system was implemented for a major manufacturer of concrete products, CS Beton. The entire solution is customised acording to the client's needs and includes check-in of the trucks providing both material supply and products shipment.
At the arrival at the site, the vehicle is identified by scanning the license plate. Then it is navigated to a free position using a parking system. Thanks to the individual connection of the customer's information system and the check-in system, there is no additional administrative burden for the operator. After parking, the driver goes to the self-service kiosk, where he registers in a queue of the vehicles waiting for check-in without further interaction with the staff. A kiosk with a different configuration is available to call-up a specific vehicle. Instead of a ticket printer with a queue number ticket, the kiosk is equipped with an RFID card scanner of employees. Thanks to the scanner, the login and logout of warehousemen is fast and easy. Working with user interface and the call-up itself is intuitive and registered clients can be called up almost immediately within two clicks. The call-up information is displayed on four large outdoor screens and thedriver has to enter the site at the gatehouse . Here, depending on the type of the vehicle, it is necessary to meet certain conditions for permission to enter or exit. These include, in particular,scanning license plate , RFID identification, EAN code, material type recording, weighing, photographs of the loading area, checking by gatekeeper, etc. VIP license plates, which allow automatical entry y without any operator interaction are also included.
A complex solution with a high degree of automation that met expectations.
After the implementing of the system, the check-in process was simplified and accelerated thanks to the identification of license plates and the automation of the registration process. Warehouses also have a quick overview of the waiting clients, and clients know what to do thanks to automatically transmitted information. The whole check-in is faster and continual. Following the implementation of the system, the capacity of the checked-in clients gradually increased. From the collected data, a retrospective evaluation is possible and on the basis of this information, the client is able to identify other possible places where improvements could be optimal and effective to streamline other processes, not just clearance.
