BLOG: What does the Return on Investment (ROI) look like for an Automated Gate?
The question comes up with every Autogate project; What does the return on investment look like? The ROI is a performance measure used to evaluate the efficiency of an investment. For an Automated Gate there are three main factors that play an important role in the ROI.
1. Increase Capacity
Through the reduction of data input and thereby increasing the speed of the transactions, there is a higher throughput at the Automated gate. Truck drivers can enter the terminal smoothly and fast. Truck turnaround times are considerably shorter opposed to a manually operated gate and as a result, more trucks can be processed.
2. Improved productivity
With more trucks processed at the gate, waiting times in the production area are reduced and operational interruptions are prevented. The entire production process becomes more efficient, and the productivity increases.
3. Reduce costs
By digitalization and automation of the gate process, one can save on operational costs. The Gate kiosk takes over many administrative (manual) tasks of the gate clerks so they can do other tasks in the organization.
Besides the ROI, the increased safety and reduced environmental footprint are items no modern terminal can ignore. The faster handling times at the gate reduces idling and thereby the carbon emissions. Helping you create a cleaner work environment for your employees and improve your impact on the climate.
An Automated Gate offers excellent opportunities to bring your company to a higher level.
