This tank-container fleet is becoming smarter

By Chemical Engineering |

This logistics company has begun fitting a new telematic system to its tank container fleet (photo), enabling seamless monitoring of goods transported in tank containers at any defined point in time. This includes monitoring not only position, as in the general cargo sector, but also the status of the transported goods with regard to their pressure, temperature, filling level and density parameters. A non-invasive filling-level measuring system solves a large number of technical challenges. Full ATEX certification for all the components completes the range of services offered. Users have access to these data, together with the transport order data, on a web platform that includes automatic monitoring and an alert if there are any discrepancies. Of the 37,000 tank containers in the company’s fleet, 5,000 have already been upgraded, and around 8,000 tank containers per year will follow in each of the next few years. — Hoyer GmbH, Hamburg, Germany
