APM Terminal introduces Token Management System
A PM Terminals Inland Services South Asia has introduced token management system to expedite supply chain through cost effective innovation. Token Management System is integrated with CONTRACK and Radio Frequency Identification ( RFID) technology. The touch screen customer service kiosk is similar to the kiosk in the retail banking industry. RFID, mapped to the container freight station (CFS) management system (CONTRACK), is linked to this customer service kiosk. The kiosk located in the custom’s area enable the custom house agent (CHA) to check the arrival status of the container at the CFS and the exact location of the container within the CFS.
On entering container details, the kiosk prints a receiving note to the CHA on the arrival status which is then presented as part of the documentation process for clearance of container.
