In a move to reduce theft and minimise accidents, CMC Grindrod has enhanced the security at its Durban depot by installing a surveillance solution worth over R1 million from Intervid Africa.
CMC Grindrod provides storage, handling and repair facilities for empty and full containers (including refrigerated containers) for shipping lines and container leasing companies.
"The security package includes a total of 27 fixed as well as dome cameras, which have been placed in strategic locations around the entire depot, to monitor the movement of containers and vehicles in and out of the site. The system is also linked to two automated gates that are opened and closed from the control room," explains Stuart Bromley, CMC Grindrod's financial manager.
"These cameras feed into a central control room where eight monitors televise activities as they happen. In addition, the control room has two VGA monitors that are used to review historical footage."
While theft losses and accidents resulting from staff negligence were two business challenges behind the decision to invest in the system, Bromley says that the surveillance solution also gives CMC Grindrod's clients peace of mind that their containers are being stored in a safe and controlled environment.
