Air and seaports

Reliable information systems are vital to the efficient control and operation of road traffic movements within airports, seaports and logistics centres, where traffic volumes can fluctuate dramatically.

Variable Message Signs (VMS) has considerable experience in developing and providing specialist messaging signs and transport information systems for a wide range of applications, built on the back of over 25 year’s experience of developing information systems for the UK highways network.

Such densely populated sites require a wide range of applications to handle road traffic and parking guidance, employing comprehensive transport systems in a fast moving environment.

With RGB (full colour) signs now routinely specified in Europe and the rest of the world, VMS have developed a full colour RGB sign, and a 5-colour RGBWY (red, green, blue, white, yellow) sign. The extra 2 colours guarantee colour stability and ensure compliance with the requirements of the European standard, EN 12966, class 2.
