AI-based port automation pioneer, Docker Vision said it has secured pre-seed funding through venture capital firms Thinkuvate and SeaFund through SanchiConnect’s PreSeed Accelerator program.
The start-up termed this capital infusion as important as the fund will help it to expand its brand. It is planning to conduct additional proof of concepts (POCs), and and consolidate its operations. “Beyond acting as a monetary injection, this significant investment is a testament to the trust and belief in Docker Vision’s commitment to delivering transformative port automation solutions,” the company added.
The company has claimed that its AI-powered Gate OCR or dOCR is a game changer as it reduces waiting times and lowers carbon emissions but also introduces panoramic imaging for efficient damage detection in cargo handling.

We deeply appreciate the confidence and support from our investors, setting sail towards a horizon of innovation and substantial impact.”
