Hawaii Shippers to Benefit from More Efficient and Secure Terminal
Charlotte, North Carolina –– October 23, 2007 –– Horizon Services Group (HSG), the technology division of Horizon Lines, LLC selected NASCENT Technology, LLC.’s SYNAPSE™ gate control hardware for the gate system upgrade of Hawaii Stevedores, Inc’s (HSI) terminal at the Port of Honolulu, Hawaii. The new technology will benefit Hawaii shippers by enabling faster, more secure transit through the gate.
The SYNAPSE™ gate control hardware, which combines a host of gate control hardware and software including lane-mounted video cameras, video digitizers, Voice-over-IP (VOIP) communications, printers, bar-code scanners, and phone handsets, allows any clerk to remotely process visiting drivers at any of the entry and exit points at the terminal.
“NASCENT and HSG’s dedication to improving transportation processes by employing innovative technology solutions is clear. This common goal provides a certain synergy between the two companies that enables the quick and effective deployment of technology. Having enjoyed two successful Horizon Lines’ terminal deployments last year, we look forward to working with HSG again on the Pier One HSI terminal” said Fabio Teti, NASCENT President.
