Value-engineered gate control solution designed for small, leased facilities wanting to eliminate manual processes while improving efficiency and sustainability
Charlotte, NC September 12, 2022 – Nascent Technology, a global leader in Automated Gate Systems (AGS) for the container supply chain and Buckeye Mountain, Inc., an innovator in intermodal IT solutions, announce the formalization of their partnership and the release of a new joint product offering that optimizes inland container depots, warehouses, distribution centers and rail yards.
The RapidGate solution takes 26 years and over 1200 lanes of gate automation expertise from Nascent and integrates components and software from that solution into a wholly new Buckeye Mountain RapidDeploy power and communications device proven at hundreds of container facilities in North America. The new offering empowers facility operators to transition away from manually operated entry and exit checkpoints and into more automated, secure, and environmentally friendly gate operations. The fully integrated system is 100% self-contained in a solar powered 20’ shipping container that is fast and easy to deploy and requires no costly physical infrastructure or permits. The future of gates is green!
“Nascent, and our sister company Envase, which provides drayage TMS platforms for over 30% of the intermodal market in North America, is committed to optimizing the supply chain ecosystem,” said Larry Cuddy, CEO of Envase. “RapidGate is tailor made for small, typically leased container depots that historically have been unable to afford a traditional AGS due to all the site preparation costs.”
RapidGate enables any facility to:
- Automatically identify and process 100% of gate traffic, enabling real-time billing and inventory accuracy
- Remove paper and people from the lanes
- Maintain high-security access control even during 24/7 operations
- Reduce congestion while lowering overhead costs
- Manage errors and exceptions remotely via software
RapidGate is installed quickly and without invasive trenching and underground conduit and without involving any local resources to provide AC power or remote internet connections needed for monitoring, support and exception handling. The net result is an entirely self-sustaining AGS outfitted with a solar powered battery array and redundant 5G remote internet communications that can be dropped onto any facility and be operational in a matter of days. Best of all, this affordable, easy-to-install solution has flexible lease purchase options that eliminates upfront costs.
