In 2017, a total of 508.000 tank containers were used. In 2017 a total of 48.500 new units were made, 4.000 more than in 2016. At the start of 2018, a total of 552.000 tank containers were used. In comparison to 2017 (508.000 tank containers) a growth of 8.66%. 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 is dependant on different factors, like maintenance and availability.
Tank containers are transported within different circumstances. This can be different modalities and different weather conditions. All of these circumstances do have their influence on the maintenance of the tank containers. Some tank containers need to have maintenance or repairs more often than others. Maintenance and Repairs are calculated by most companies, but often it is a high-cost item. Adaption developed a special software, Maintenance & Repair software, to monitor and predict the needs of maintenance. This solution will offer companies, which use tank containers, more control of their maintenance and repair. Maintenance can be scheduled better to prevent more expensive repairs.
In comparison to a transport of a regular container, a transport of a tank container requires more attention. The registration of the necessary information, like hazardous substances, trailers and chassis, needs to be done in a safe and right way. A software which is able to process this information in a safe way will lead to fewer mistakes and will reduce costs and time. By using all the available data it is possible to predict where and when a tank container needs maintenance. By extended analyses the maintenance can be predicted, in this way costs can be reduced and tank containers are available even faster.
“By making very precise analyses we are able to prevent extra repair costs. We can optimize our M&R costs and turnaround times”
