All trucks heading into the paper mill MONDI, Slovakia, have to pass an automatic security check. It controls if storage of its wood load meets all standards of safety. Each truck is scanned by a group of 2D scanners. After that the inspection of timber load is done by a software with use of the data gained by these scanners. The security software is universal for all kinds of storage of timber loads. This article is dedicated to deal with a problem of classification a kind of wood storage on a

The classification is solved by training a convolutional neural network on datasets with recorded trucks of both kinds to learn patterns distinguishing them. The image classification is done with use of images recorded by a set of cameras. By determining a type of storage, it is possible to execute the safety check for a specific type of wood load with better result than the universal check.
