Solving Landside Congestion at Ports
It all starts with smart data – to access the ground truth, uncover the bottlenecks, and determine the impact of your solutions. We make landside congestion data at ports easy to collect and analytics ready to use – so you don’t spend time on searching for the facts, but on solving the problem.
Access the Ground Truth
Your drayage contractors report that wait times at your terminal gates have worsened.
Do you have answers to the “if”, “when”, and “why” questions?
Using SMATS’ TrafficXHub sensors and iNode™ app, you will be equipped to access not only the facts 24/7, but also patterns and trends of congestion.
Create a Great Experience for Truck Drivers
While having a Terminal Appointment System helps, gate congestion still happens. It can be frustrating for truck drivers to show up for an appointment on time but still have to wait in a long queue.
Use our solution to share real-time wait times automatically with the truck drivers, so they can plan their schedules accordingly.
Get a Handle on Truck Routes
Your community partners are unhappy because drayage trucks enter their streets and neighbourhoods despite no-enter signs.
Leverage SMATS’ solution to take a data-driven approach to identifying the affected areas, determine the frequency of entries, and design and assess your counter measures.
