ASE’s NUMBERCheck video gate digitizes entries and exits in the Port of Duisburg


Dear Companists,

Intelligent image processing is one of the fundamental technologies for automating and digitizing the transport and logistics industries. The automation of logistical processes along value chains also comprises the fully automated surveillance and registration of goods’ entries and exits.  

The Port of Duisburg recently installed a pilot system for the fully automated recognition of wagon and container numbers at the location log port III.  Now, data no longer has to be recorded manually and it is available immediately after processing. This facilitates improved disposition and controlling of the entire logistical process, considerably reducing processing times. At present, 180,000 loading units are registered at the log port III per year, with a rising trend.


Automation optimizes processes and provides reliable documentation of conditions

After the data is recorded and processed, the port operator automatically receives a list of the wagons sorted in the correct order in which BIC codes (owner code) with associated containers per wagon and UIC numbers (uniform European code for wagon numbers) and ILU codes (owner code for identifying European intermodal loading units such as interchangeable containers, semi-trailers, etc.) are included. The lists also receive a time stamp and a location and are stored in the network.


ASE - User Interface NUMBERCheck-System


From now on, the Port of Duisburg will be able to inspect the arriving trains, wagons, and loading units for noticeable damage and, if necessary, mark them by means of a graphical user interface using a selection field to print and save a damage report after the train has passed. The Port of Duisburg pays special attention to container corners that may already have been damaged upon entry, which is why pictures of complete wagons were also desired when the order was placed. 


Great value through ASE system

The automated recognition and verification enables effective planning of personnel deployment, accelerates logistical processes, and thus leads to cost and time savings since manual checks become redundant.

Prof. Thomas Schlipköther, member of the executive board of Duisburger Hafen AG, comments: “As the largest inland port in the world, we also want to be a technological leader. OCR technology greatly improves our internal control and is a practical example of the digitization of the logistics chain. For us, it represents another step in the implementation of a secure TAF TSI system (Telematics applications for freight service).”

We are pleased to be able to support a renowned organization such as the Port of Duisburg with our system.

Investments in startups and growth companies offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, investments in startups or growth companies are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by diversifying the amount they invest in startups and growth companies and not investing the entire amount in one startup or growth company. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the investors on Companisto are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the investors (Companists) – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, investments in startups and growth companies are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
