JICT introduces auto gate system
The Jakarta Post
JAKARTA: The Jakarta International Container Terminal (JICT) unveiled on Wednesday the JICT auto gate system (JAGS), aimed to significantly cut the transaction time at the gate and waiting time in
the parking area.
The system replaces check booths at the entry and exit gates, which previously required loading cards, with an automatic checkpoint machine using radio-frequency identification cards and tickets.
So far, the terminal has registered 12,000 trucks and issued truck identification cards to trucking companies for access to the terminal. “JAGS will streamline the handling of containers moving in and out of the terminal. This is part of an overall effort to increase terminal capacity and continually improve our service levels,” JICT president director Albert Pang said in a statement.
JICT will also operate 20 new fuel-efficient container tractors with Euro-3 eco-friendly technology to help its yard operations. The implementation of JAGS and the operation of the new equipment are part of its expansion plan to boost the terminal’s annual handling capacity to 2.8 million 20-foot equivalent units (TEUs) from the 2.5 million TEUs at present.
