Dockyards are niche users of radio communications systems which share similar issues to the Education and Healthcare sectors, such as staff efficiency, staff numbers, lone worker and safety management. Additionally, a critical requirement for the Docks sector (for safety and accident investigation purposes) is people and asset tracking so that at any one time there is a record of where all dock personnel and moveable assets are. In order to achieve this the radio communications system needs to include specialist handsets for vehicles, crane and straddle carriers as well as other specialist vehicles. Other applications include managing dockside traffic flow by installing radio controlled traffic lights and barriers, allowing cranes to move safely and efficiently around the docks, enabling the smooth running of the docks, ensuring staff safety and maximising the efficient use of staff.
Capcom understands the requirements of dockside operations and has proven skills and experience in delivering successful radio communications systems to many docks based along the South and East coasts of England.
