Manual Data Eliminated for Canton Port Services

Barcoding, Inc. recently helped Canton Port Services, LLC, implement a custom barcode scanning solution that removes the need for manual processes in receiving, load out and customs clearing options. Canton Port Services is a private terminal in Baltimore’s Harbor that offers a wide array of services, including handling, storing and rail loading/unloading, and turned to Barcoding, Inc. for their expertise in becoming more efficient, accurate and connected.

Canton Port Services needed a solution that would eliminate manual data entry in receiving and load-out processes, which would save time and prevent errors. Barcoding implemented a barcode scanning system involving mobile computers, printers, barcode labels and a custom web application developed with Barcoding’s proprietary CaptureSoft Xpress™ platform. Barcoding integrated the software with Canton Port Services’ partner’s booking system in order to update inventory in real time as vehicles are scanned.

Barrcoding’s solution allowed Canton Port Services to:

  • Increase data accuracy and integrity in its receiving, load out, and customs clearing processes.
  • Decrease receiving time per unit from 10 minutes to 30 seconds
  • Reduce risks associated with innacuracies in customs clearing
  • Strengthen their relationship with partner cargo line company

“Barcoding and its team were able to deliver a complete solution that did just that. From its customized software application, to the integration with our partner’s system, to hardware procurement, Barcoding was a great partner in helping us gain new efficiencies and accuracies,” said Rex Wheeler, president, Canton Port Services, LLC.

Shane Snyder, president, Barcoding, Inc., stated, “Eliminating manual data entry in day-to-day operations is a quick, yet viable way for companies to realize additional areas of cost savings through greater efficiency, accuracy, and connectivity. While barcode scanning is just one solution for automating data capture, Canton Port Services demonstrated the technology’s effectiveness and has experienced some significant results. We are looking forward to continue working with Canton Port Services to uncover even more ways that mobile data capture technology can assist in its overall business.”
