With over $2.2 trillion economic value of goods flowing through their distribution centers each year worldwide, Prologis is the world’s leader in Logistics Real Estate Solutions focusing on key logistic markets. In Mexico, Prologis has 6 locations where many people drive in and out every day.

To do this, there was a need for an up to date access control solution to collect data. The data of vehicles entering and leaving the sites helps Prologis to optimize their planning of logistic processes inside their facilities. The access control upgrade for the industrial parks had one requirement: ease of entry for both employees and visitors. ASPI Systems and Prologis where looking for an identification solution with high precision and flexibility in autonomous operation.


They have chosen to install 17 ANPR Lumo license plate readers across six industrial parks in the state of Mexico. One of the installations was in a LEED-certified warehouse in a master-planned industrial park. This 387,400 square foot warehouse contains 266 parking spaces and 100 dock high doors. With the amount of inflow and outflow of cars every day, the importance of accurate, efficient, and reliable technology was evident.

The process of implementing the ANPR Lumo’s leaded to:

  • Easy and seamless access for both employees and visitors, which higher the level of work experience;
  • Added incremental security at the perimeter;
  • Control of trucks entering and leaving the logistics centers. The ANPR Lumo enabled them to correlate the vehicle ID with the shipment orders at the security check point.
