What is CTAS?

Container Terminal Automation System


CTAS is the 1
st

“end to end”
integrated terminal asset
management system

in the
industry… a total application
platform for container, equipment
and workforce control and
performance management in
marine and intermodal terminals



CTAS integrates identification,
locating and wireless/telemetric
sensor technologies for real time
position and status monitoring



CTAS can be deployed as a
standalone system or in conjunction
with TOS and other process
automation systems

Key Takeaway Points


Modular


Select only modules you need….pay for what you need


Scalable


Same system address variable size installations


Greenfield or existing


IDENTEC expertise in both


Equipment Independence


Not tied to one equipment, OEM equipment vendors don’t have same flexibility


Broad range if CHE types addressed, heavy straddle expertise


Open interfaces


Standardized and client specific integration to TOS, CHE PLCs etc.


Hardware flexibility


Hardware solutions matched to client requirements
