What is Container OCR?

June 25, 2024

Container OCR (Optical Character Recognition) is a technology that automatically reads and interprets the alphanumeric codes on shipping containers using images or video footage. This system enhances logistics and supply chain operations by providing accurate and efficient container identification and tracking. It reduces the need for manual data entry, minimizes errors, and integrates with existing management systems. Container OCR supports real-time data processing, improving operational efficiency, security, and compliance with international standards in container handling and management.

Key Differences Between Container OCR and Container Code Recognition

Container OCR:

  • It is primarily focused on reading and converting text (like container numbers).
  • It relies mainly on text recognition techniques.
  • It is used for tasks that require text extraction and processing.

Container Code Recognition:

  • It encompasses a wider range of markings, including text, barcodes, QR codes, symbols, and logos.
  • It uses a combination of OCR and other image recognition methods.
  • It is used for a broader range of identification tasks involving various types of codes and labels.
