    CHALLENGES DUE TO NON-OPTIMIZED TURNAROUNDS

    Stainless steel intermediate bulk containers are essential to the safe processing, storage, and shipment of valuable products. However, once they’re in operation, how can you locate the IBC and the status of the product? This information is, of course, vital to optimizing your operation. Without it, key pains can include:

    • Delivering an effective and timely administrative return process (call, transport planning, pick-up)
    • Managing turn around at peak times, ensuring that empty IBCs aren’t sat around on customers’ premises
    • Damaged IBCs are not available during repair time
    • Buffer stocks are built up
    • The possibility for reasonable planning and coordination is slim
    The answer is simple. IBC Insight Technology from THIELMANN.

    THE ALL-IN-ONE SOLUTION PROVIDED BY THIELMANN

    A COMPLETE TOOL TO MONITOR AND MANAGE YOUR FLEET

    As an expert IBC service provider, THIELMANN is now making our offering even more comprehensive as the perfect partner for tracking services. THIELMANN IBC Insight Technology provides a complete solution for IBC tracking and monitoring, with hardware, software, and support. 

    With the highest localization accuracy and IoT sensors delivering around -the -clock data on position, temperature, shock, standing times, pressure and fill level, businesses can streamline their operations like never before

    To use fill level as just one example, with this intelligence, companies can fully optimize returns planning, increasing turn rate. This benefit can be passed to customers, as fill level monitoring can be added as a service.

    The sensors can be placed in various positions on both new and existing units, with enclosures fabricated from HDPE or ASA. They measure levels via ultrasound, ensuring a non-invasive installation. This mitigates the need to drill into the body of the container, guaranteeing impermeability for full hygiene and ease of cleaning, especially for retrofits in existing container fleets. 

    This data is provided via ultra-reliable connectivity powered by major telecoms providers. The system can also be integrated with SAP and other ERP systems are per the client’s needs. Plus, thanks to built-in battery status messages, you can monitor the functioning of your system as closely as your fleet.
