Monitoring the parameters of products in transit, e.g. temperature, ﬁlling level, pressure and the tank container’s location, are important factors in this operation based on which the safety, security, efﬁciency and consistent quality of transport movements are guaranteed. The Hamburg-based logistics specialist has reached another milestone by equipping more than 10,000 Smart Tank.
To design the tank container ﬂeet’s controls even more efﬁciently, HOYER already began initial tests of telematics solutions twenty years ago. With Smart Logistics, the company is today the innovation leader in the intelligently networked logistics ﬁeld, and offers smart solutions to monitor, analyse and optimise logistics processes. One of the central points here is systematically upgrading the ﬂeet to so-called Smart Tanks.
According to Marlen Blechschmidt, Head of Digitalisation Business Unit Netlog at HOYER: “By using this technology, our Smart Tank will report deviations in critical load parameters, thus offering our customers even more safety, quality and efﬁciency for the product being transported.” The ATEX certiﬁcation of the HOYER technology is an additional seal of quality.
Heiko Rumfeld, Director Business Unit Netlog at HOYER, added: “Over 10,000 tanks equipped with smart technology strengthen our market position and innovation leadership. The demand and customer feedback conﬁrm the success of our Smart Tanks.”
