Founded by Managing Director Dethmer Drenth in 2013, Intermodal Telematics B.V. (IMT) has become the leading independent provider of telematics for the tank container market.
Telematics is a rapidly growing service that describes the use of communications and information technology to transmit, store and receive information from telecommunications devices on remote assets, such as tank containers and rail tank cars, over a network that mobile phone users would know as 2G, 3G, 4G or 5G. Put simply, telematics make tank containers ‘smart’ and, like Sat Navs in cars, customers will soon come to expect this capability on the tank containers they use.
Drenth says, “In practical terms, a variety of IMT sensors can be easily and quickly attached to tank containers.
“These sensors give owners, shippers or freight companies the ability to remotely monitor and/or adjust a number of physical parameters while in storage or during transit”.
