The intermodal and transportation industries demand highly effective processes and proactive support to maintain peak operations. As the premier automation service provider for six (6) Class I railroads, REMPREX goes beyond the industry standard to provide technology that fits your operation.
Automated Gate System (AGS) Technology
REMPREX believes that the Gate process establishes the driver experience. The efficiency of the Gate process directly affects driver retention and facility popularity.
The efficiency of the Gate process dictates a driver’s ability to maximize the number of Gate moves performed in a day, which directly affects the popularity of your facility.
An optimized Gate experience results from the following efficiencies:
- Reduced processing times
- Reduced operator involvement
- Increased automation
- Streamlined business process and screen flow
- Reduced variability, consistency in time required to enter and exit the facility
- Maximized hardware functionality
- Maximized hardware reliability
To optimize the Gate process, REMPREX procures, deploys, and maintains Automated Gate System (AGS) technology. AGS delivers the following operational benefits:

|05||Standardized Gate Process||
For Large Intermodal Facilities
For Intermodal Facilities, Container Yards
and Distribution Centers
To provide advanced imagery and facilitate damage inspections, AGS integrates with CAMCO Portal technology, which captures and stores images of vehicles as they enter or exit an area. The Portal uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology to read unit information and gather the associated data. Using a combination of camera types and angles, the Portal can capture images of all sides of a vehicle for damage inspection. By integrating with AGS technology, the system pairs images with Gate transaction data.
Portals handle speeds up to 30 miles per hour, 2 seconds or 9 feet of vehicle separation, and up to 500 vehicles per hour.

Tire Inspection Portal (TIP™)
REMPREX provides NASCENT Tire Inspection Portal (TIP™) technology to identify damaged tires entering and exiting a facility. TIP™ is a four (4)-camera system located at the exit of a Truck Portal designed to capture and store images of one full rotation of chassis tires. The images provide visual signs of wear and damage on chassis tires as they enter or exit an area. A low-voltage, Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting system is used to illuminate the tires.
TIP™ images associate with Portal and Gate transaction data, and are viewable through the AGS Clerk Console and a separate web interface.

ReadyAGS ™ – Live Life in the Fast Lane
ReadyAGS™ is a mobile application powered by NASCENT Technology that virtualizes your Gate experience. With readyAGS, you can perform your validation steps as if you were at the facility’s Gate Kiosks before actually arriving at the facility – whenever and wherever convenient for you.
readyAGS™ assists with the validation process by pre-validating drivers.
Coupled with NASCENT AGS technology, readyAGS™ allows for faster Gate processing and eliminates the needs for printing.
readyAGS™ allows drivers to take charge of their day by reducing wait times and avoiding hassles.
Rail Inspection Portal
REMPREX provides CAMCO Rail Portal technology to assist with unit identification before a train arrives at a facility. The system uses state-of-the-art Optical Character Recognition (OCR) cameras and technology to read unit information and gather the associated data. The service-processor and modular design of the cameras help to simplify the maintenance and support process, making the Rail Portal easier to maintain and troubleshoot.
Rail Portal images are viewable through a visual operator console for post-processing, OCR validation, and consolidation.
- Ability to read unit information automatically, including container numbers, well designation, ISO codes, and other details
- Ability to maintain a minimum of 500 container reads per hour and per rail OCR Portal
- Recognizes all possible container configurations such as single 20’, 40’, 45’, 2 x 20’, and double stacked containers
- Supports shunting processes
- High redundancy
- Intelligent OCR cameras that provide high scalability
