The manual toll collection system will be installed in the lane (level 1), integrating it with the existing plaza system (level 2) and back office (level 3). Considering the addition of the plazas of the first phase (Virú and Vesique), the project will be completed with the commissioning of a total of 4 plazas and 23 lanes.

The company Autopista del Norte is the concessionaire responsible for the construction, operation and maintenance of the Pativilca-Trujillo highway. The scope of this project has a length of 396.21 km and longitudinally connects the Lima, Ancash and La Libertad regions. For more information: www.aunor.pe.


Logistics 2018, exhibitors record

Tecsidel Logistics Systems made its presence, once again, as an exhibitor at Logistics 2018, the exhibition that every year gathers the main players of this industry. The exclusive event took place at Feria de Madrid (IFEMA) in 12th and 13th of November and Tecsidel attended visitors at stand F10.

In this edition, Logistics broke the record by reaching 300 companies exhibitors, showing the top trends in material handling, distribution, e-logistics and systems in the current market. That is why Tecsidel could not miss it.

Logistics 2018 offered conferences during the two days with a very educational program presented by national and international experts, and a showroom where visitors were able to see the physical and virtual recreation of a supply chain based on electronic commerce. This space also organized the 1st Logistics Madrid Trucks Contest 2018

On this occasion, Tecsidel showed its best solution for the management and control of automatic warehouses: SEGA WCS. This system allows to coordinate the subsystems that make up an automatic installation using its own native protocols: miniloads, automatic pallet stores, carousels, sorters, AGVs, etc.

See you in the next edition!

Tecsidel will Implement the first Multi-Lane Free Flow Toll system in Argentina

For the first time in the country, the Multi-lane Free Flow electronic toll will reach Buenos Aires through the ‘Paseo del Bajo’ project, with the collaboration of the state company Autopistas Urbanas S.A. (AUSA). The implementation and commissioning of this toll system was awarded to Tecsidel.

This electronic toll system, commonly called Multi-Lane Free Flow (MLFF), manages the collection automatically without the vehicle having to stop at the plaza. Today, it is the smartest solution for urban environments where toll collection is aimed at reducing congestion.

For this important MLFF project, the ‘Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires y Nación’, with the support of the Andean Development Corporation (CAF), was involved in the important construction of Paseo del Bajo that connect the highways of Buenos Aires-La Plata and Illia along 7Km of highway.

Tecsidel's Free Flow toll system is capable of automatically detecting, identifying and classifying vehicles with the corresponding collection fee without affecting the highway flow or access to the city. With this state-of-the-art solution, the benefits are evident. It reduces infrastructure costs (civil works and constructions) and ensures a reliable operation without fraud, increases traffic mobility by greatly reducing congestion and pollution, and improves road safety and user comfort.

For this project, the company will install several trunk gantries along the highway and trench, and at the Sarmiento and Salguero access points. Each one of them will be equipped with the following elements:

- Antennas for the OBU reading

- Automatic Vehicle Classification (AVC)

- Recognition of front and back plates (ALPR)

- Cameras for video-audit

Tecsidel signs a SEGA WMS project with GTA in Guatemala

Tecsidel and GTA (Grupo de Tiendas Asociadas) sign a project for the implementation and commissioning of SEGA WMS in its distribution center for dry products located in Guatemala.

GTA is the owner of Super del Barrio, Mi Super Fresh, Multi Mayoreo and Suma stores, all of which are spread throughout Guatemalan territory. It is the first time that they opted for Tecsidel´s SEGA WMS to manage one of its distribution centers, which in particular has a total of 7,500 m2 of surface area.

This high-performance solution supports the most efficient operating models in manufacturing, distribution and service environments by natively integrating all the maintenance and data capture technologies present in the market.

Furthermore, this leading-edge system reduces operational costs, efficiently managing human resources, handling equipment and installations. With Tecsidel SEGA WMS, productivity will be increased while errors reduced and the operation in the distribution centre can be controlled in detail.


The container storage management is booming

Container storages are a very important part of the logistics chain. In the last 10 years, maritime transport by containers has enormously grown and we have experienced the birth of the "hub" concept that identifies ports where large ships dock with their merchandise, providing significant economic benefits for merchants and for the country.

At the same time, there is a rising concern about the storage of containers once the merchandise is unloaded since in most situations, imports predominate over exports, thus resulting in a large number of empty containers. Both importers and exporters aim to save time, space and money, which is why it is extremely important to have good management of such containers, both full and empty.

Well aware of this problem, Tecsidel has teamed up with Solport to launch the SEGA DPO and SP DEPOT tool for container depots and terminals. This modular solution, perfectly integrated, allows the management of all the processes of the maritime container deposits through fixed PC stations and portable Android terminals.

SP DEPOT manages stocks (including spares) and budget and billing workflows. The solution is integrated with the shipping lines through EDI messaging and has a web page that streamlines the costumers’ procedures.

The execution of physical operations is the main task of SEGA DPO. The system specializes in the management of operational processes of container yards. This operational execution is carried out without paper or radio communications. The operators perform the field tasks in real time from mobile terminals in their reach stackers. This automation in capturing information allows the considerable reduction of the margin of error and assures that the information is 100% reliable.

The deposit  is organized into different storage areas and internal work is structured in specific locations. The Tecsidel system optimizes the activities of the reach stackers and other internal cargo vehicles and updates the locations of the handled containers in real time. This way, the work carried out by each vehicle and operator is recorded, which renders complete traceability.

In conclusion, SEGA DPO and SP DEPOT provide the complete cycle of warehouse operations starting from the door operation solutions (Gate IN / OUT) and ending with the management process with clients and shipping lines (bookings, repair budgets, special services, billing, EDI messaging, etc.) These solutions are integrated with systems, access controls and the automatic registration of truck and container number plates, which offer us a certain level of automation that allows us to reduce time or bottlenecks at the entrance / exit or at some point of the process, through the execution of physical operations in the yard, inspections (cash and machine) of containers using mobile terminals, and the planning and execution of operations in the yard.

One of the advantages of this technological alliance between Tecsidel and Solport is that the portfolio of solutions is so broad that it makes offering integrated modular systems for maritime agents, transients, logistics operators, container depots, transport companies and importers and exporters.

For instance; in large volume warehouses, the entry and exit of trucks can also be automated, the workload can be balanced and the flow of queues and car parks controlled. The SEGA DPO module by Tecsidel can integrate OCR technology for license plates and containers, use RFID tags to automatically identify people, vehicles and assets, or communicate with users through different mechanisms such as variable messaging panels. In this way, it allows to streamline operations and ensure their correct execution.
