Transport is the backbone of any industry. Without it, we would literally be stuck. The industry currently faces challenges including failing infrastructure, theft and outdated technology. According to police statistics from 2016 to 2017, 81 trucks were hijacked in KwaZulu-Natal alone. And many shipping containers with millions of rands worth of products go missing every year.
In an article on iol.co.za, Taweni Gondwe-Xaba, the chief marketing officer of the Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry said, “Cargo-truck hijackings pose a high-impact risk to the entire value chain. If these hijackings persist, Durban and South Africa at large run the risk of being viewed by the rest of the world as an unsafe and unsecure investment destination.”
The situation may seem dire, but we believe the IMC solution will revolutionise the transport industry. The IMC system integrates video surveillance with intelligent transport detectors and artificial intelligence to offer the following benefits:
• Automatic recognition and logging of license plates and rail car numbers
• Real-time feedback, so you can respond quickly and avoid any problems
• Integration and interaction with your existing systems
• Monitoring compliance with size and weight requirements
