Choosing a mobile, rugged computer to maximise port efficiency The powerful Duros 8404

It’s difficult to imagine that ink and paper ledgers were, at one time, the sole means of organising all the comings and goings at a port. With the sheer volume of trade in today’s global marketplace, computers have become indispensible in managing the massive amounts of cargo processed every day.

When it comes to moving, tracking and coordinating the placement of containers, many of the world’s ports have relied on the Duros™ 1214 rugged, fixed-mount computer, because it is reliable, powerful and engineered to withstand the challenging port environment.

Now, ports are also taking a renewed interest in the Duros 8404 tablet computer, which was recently reengineered to include an Intel® Atom™ processor and an improved sunlight-viewable 8.4” diagonal SVGA resistive touchscreen.

Machine-mounted or handheld performance
The Duros 8404 can be mounted easily onto a variety of industrial machinery – including forklifts, pallet trucks, pickers and cranes – with limited intrusion into valuable cabin space, or picked up and taken with the operator.
