In 2017, a total of 552.000 tank containers were used. In 2018 a total of 59.700 new units were made, 11.000 more than in 2017. At the start of 2019, a total of 607.700 tank containers were used. In comparison to 2018 (552.000 tank containers) a growth of 10.81%. According to Global Tank Container Survey, this growth is due to the safe, trustable, sustainable and economically favourable way of transportation. The purchase of tank containers is a big investment. A tank container is a sustainable way, which lasts for a long time. The profitability of tank containers depends on various factors, e.g. maintenance and availability.
Tank containers are transported under various circumstances. Transport varies in modality and weather conditions. All of these circumstances influence maintenance of the tank containers. Some tank containers need to undergo maintenance or repairs more often than others. Maintenance and repairs are calculated by most companies, and, most often, is a big expense item. Adaption developed special software module, Maintenance & Repair, to monitor and predict the needs and costs of maintenance. This solution will offer companies, which use tank containers, a greater control of their maintenance and repair. Maintenance can be scheduled more efficiently and timely to prevent more expensive repairs.
In comparison to transport of a regular container, transporting a tank container requires more attention. Registering and administering necessary information, like hazardous substances, trailers and chassis, needs to be done in accordance with pre-set standards. The use of software which is able to process this information in a secure and reliable way will lead to fewer mistakes and reduction of costs and time. By using all the available data it is possible to predict where and when a tank container needs maintenance. Through extended analysis the maintenance can be predicted which ensure a higher availability rate of a business’ tank container fleer which eventually will lead to a greater revenue stream.
“By making very precise analyses we are able to prevent extra repair costs. We can optimize our M&R costs and availability rates”
