Icom LTE Radio | ChannelPorts Case Study
Independent Customs Clearance Company Chooses Icom LTE Radio for Vehicle Management
ChannelPorts, the only private customs clearance agent in the UK, is one of the latest companies to adopt the Icom LTE radio system. The company processes over 3,000 vehicles and consignments a month through their customs clearance facility in Folkestone, Kent. The company now use the LTE radio system to coordinate parking and customs clearance across the 200-space lorry park, spread over a one square mile area in three sections.
ChannelPorts chose the Icom LTE system because of the simplicity of the setup and the coverage it provided over previous digital two-way radio systems. A representative said,
‘The Icom LTE radios have performed well. The quality of the audio is very good.’
The company also liked the way the Icom IP501H was more direct than a mobile phone, where they could contact many people at the same. They also liked the benefit of the break-in feature, which allows their management team to talk over a conversation if there was something urgent to talk about.
