Each ‘auto-scan’ system uses 23 high-resolution smart cameras delivering vehicle images of the highest possible quality. Auto scanning booths ensure that vehicle surveys take place in a fraction of the time taken for manual inspections.
“This technology is a true game-changer in our industry and is just the start of something bigger,” said Michael Rye, Senior Vice President, Wallenius Wilhelmsen.
“The technology and interfaces within the scan booths harness the untapped potential to improve the overall customer experience and work process efficiencies.”
Wallenius Wilhelmsen recognises that reliance on manual inspections for claims management is slow and inefficient.
“Traditionally, the finished vehicle supply chain relies on a series of standardised cargo inspections performed by human eyes,” explained Alex Conjour, Vice President, Port and Cargo Operations at Wallenius Wilhelmsen.
“Despite exacting standards and inspector training, survey accuracy could be highly skewed by weather, lighting, cargo spacing and human error. This collaborative project can transform cargo inspection and quality improvement processes.”
“This is a really exciting partnership for us. These booths will capture 6 different OEMs exporting from the UK, many of whom also have booths in their own plants creating a digital passport of the vehicle’s condition through the supply chain. With WWS’ forward-thinking and integration the benefits of the technology go a lot further than replacing the manual inspection process. We are delighted to be discussing further roll-out plans and solutions for different aspects of their global operations. Thanks in particular to the Southampton Port team for their ongoing commitment to the project” – Ed Jones, Managing Director, DeGould.
