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.

Tecsidel immersed in the Emuca project

Tecsidel is advancing by leaps and bounds in the Emuca project in Valencia. Emuca, a company founded in Valencia that offers solutions for the sectors of furniture, carpentry, hardware and DIY, signed a SEGA WMS project that contains different solutions for its intralogistics processes:

SEGA RF:

Next-generation Android RF terminals will be supplied including touch screens scanners and cameras.

SEGA PTV:

It will allow the picking by voice using the most cutting-edge hardware technology of the German market thanks to Tecsidel’s partner, Topsystem.

SEGA PTL:

Tecsidel will design order picking trucks with 20 bucket positions, equipped with an on-board computer, with double-sided pick-to-light and with scales in each position to avoid errors in the number of prepared units. It will also provide an order picking station with 40 bucket positions and bucket weight control.

On this occasion, the order picking machines will be equipped with on-board pallet scales to avoid quantity errors when picking boxes. Furthermore, SEGA WMS will have a mobile system for volumetric data collection and integrated weight.

SEGA WCS, the jump to the automated warehouse

When the company grows in terms of turnover and number of employees, the concern arises as to whether the manual management of the warehouse is sufficiently effective in the current market. It is then when we think about making the great technological leap, the jump to the automatic warehouse. Sometimes, it is advisable to start incorporating automatic elements in our manual warehouse to optimize the management of intralogistics operations gradually. This evolution involves such an important investment that it is convenient to be clear about the benefits it will bring to our business.

The main advantages of the ICT application to warehouse management are the saving of time and personnel expenses, reliability, accuracy, reduction of errors and accidents, and the improvement of productivity. Especially through the mechanization of labor-intensive tasks. In this sense, with a greater degree of warehouse automation, it is easier to locate and track products, as well as inventory control.

SEGA WCS is the Tecsidel system for the management and control of automatic warehouses. It allows to coordinate the subsystems that make up an automatic installation using its own native protocols: miniloads, automatic pallet stores, carousels, sorters, AGVs, etc. This solution is responsible for managing the sequence of movements and deals with optimizations, thus avoiding the realization of complex modifications at the ERP / WMS level.

More advantages:

  • It allows management from a common dashboard with the rest of conventional operations.

  • Workload balancing between conventional and automated operations.

  • Flows of alternative or contingency materials.

  • Functionality integrated in SEGA WMS or as an independent module integrated in other systems.

  • It reduces manpower costs.


Furthermore, this system provides high design flexibility so that the customer can build and monitor a customized solution, freely choosing the best elements of each supplier and optimizing productivity and costs.

To obtain an optimal performance of information and communication technologies, a comprehensive perfect integration is essential. SEGA WCS by Tecsidel has a modular design that allows a fast and efficient integration with the existing technologies of the system. It is important that companies adopt the technologies that conform to the specific strategic directions pursued by the company, because of this Tecsidel offers an exhaustive stage of consulting to its clients.

For this analysis, Tecsidel uses its SEGA SIM solution, the system that allows the simulation of operations on automated elements with real data. Thanks to this tool, it will be possible to verify if the dimensioning is correct or which adjustments need to be done.Furthermore, Tecsidel has a wide experience in this type of projects where the client needs a logistics partner to jump to the automation with the minimum possible investment.

Successful implementation of SEGA PTL in Easy

In January 2018, Tecsidel completed the implementation of SEGA PTL (Pick To Light / Put To Light) to manage Easy´s Order Classification Station at its distribution centre located in Buenos Aires.

Easy is the leading home center specialized in the sale of products for the construction, remodelling and furnishing of houses and gardens. The brand trusted Tecsidel SEGA PTL with the aim of improving the quality of order shipments to the many Easy stores in Latin America.

SEGA PTL is the solution that guides the user in each operation by using light devices. "It looks very user-friendly, intuitive, robust and productive" said Rodrigo Quiros, Easy's logistics manager, congratulating Tecsidel’s Argentinan team.

On this occasion, SEGA PTL is integrated with Easy's SAP WMS, thus resolving the coexistence of different channels to make the distribution (Traditional Island or PTL). The process is totally open and flexible to the incorporation or modification of products that pass through one or another flow, thus avoiding possible conflicts arising from multiple OT of the same product code, and other technical issues such as the opening and closing of boxes.

This project adds to the long list of companies that count on this efficient solution that increases productivity and helps operators to work safer by having their hands completely free, minimizing errors.

SEGA LITE, the smart solution for small warehouses

Tecsidel offers SEGA LITE to manage those warehouses with a moderate number of operators, it is the easiest smart solution to implement and the most flexible to operate. It is optimal for small warehouses in which a person can do different types of operations.

SEGA LITE coordinates the productive operations of the warehouse (reception, storage, picking, replenishment, adjustments and inventory) and allows to identify and locate the product in real time. This state-of-the-art system controls the FIFO or FEFO rotation, the blockages by quality and the expiration, obtaining complete traceability: delivery note of the supplier, batch, serial number, etc.

The results of this efficient solution are evident:

  • Reduction of stock levels

  • Optimization of the occupied space

  • Improvement of operator productivity

  • Improvement of customer service

  • Security guarantee: expiration dates, quality blockages, etc.

  • It drastically reduces the level of error

  • Traceability of the goods throughout the warehouse process


In addition, it offers access to historical reports to help in future decision-making and monitor different day-to-day processes of a warehouse to get information such as who prepared a specific order or who stored a specific container, etc.

SEGA LITE by Tecsidel is multi-warehouse and multi-operator, the advisable number of operators is between 1 and 12 people, and it is necessary that the items are identified with bar codes. Normally, Radio Frequency technology is integrated to execute the operations through portable devices with a screen and bar code reader. These devices are connected via WiFi for an on-line update of the information.

These are the main technical characteristics of SEGA LITE:

  • Configurable system that can be parameterized by the user

  • Friendly interface with graphic terminals

  • Unguided system: the operator determines the order and sequence of operations

  • Very flexible operating flow, adapts to characteristics of multiple sectors

  • Concept of "suggestion" in the determination of location: without fixed rules and without restrictions

  • Absolute control of stock and traceability

  • Management of consumption dates, expirations, date of manufacture, batch, and serial number, variable weight

  • Management of formats (units, packs, boxes, etc.)

  • Palletization management (layers, pallet heights)

  • Management of container types (EUR, CHEP, etc.)

  • Shipping labels, delivery notes and roadmap

  • Operation statistics

  • Integrable with any ERP


It is important to mention that SEGA LITE has the advantage that it can be implemented in the cloud (Cloud computing) without the client having to worry about the IT platform, since it is fully managed by Tecsidel.

For all these reasons, SEGA LITE by Tecsidel has become the optimal system for small warehouses or logistics operators who want to make a big technological step towards specialized systems for warehouse management.
