Telematics solutions for tank container logistics
Take action when needed: Reduce your costs with intelligent over-the-air temperature control and monitoring of refrigerated transports and optimisation of your transport and turnaround times. Thanks to notifications of business-critical deviations, you can manage by exception and react immediately.
Turning data into information – telematics devices and software for container logistics
In traffic between Western Europe and Asia, a tank container completes 4 return trips per year. If a ship is missed owing to delays in the incoming trip, the number of possible return voyages drops to 3 per year. In addition to the extra expense due to the delay, the shortfall in transport capacity has to be compensated by leasing another tank.
This is only one example of how additional costs can be avoided by using SAVVY®. We monitor the departure of the transport, report the entry and the duration of stay in the port area and detect the crane loading as well as the arrival at the destination or intermediate station. In case of excessive standing time at a transfer station, the responsible dispatcher is automatically notified.
This shortens not only your turnaround times but your personnel expenses can be reduced in the long term. Thanks to this savings in rental and personnel costs, your investment in SAVVY® will pay for itself within a few months.

COMPONENTS AND BENEFITS OF SAVVY® SYSTEM SOLUTIONS FOR CONTAINER TRANSPORTS
Information about transport progress or exact position is often not up-to-date or unreliable. SAVVY® FleetTrac provides you with all important information in real time. Communication via GSM and 3G technologies, positioning via GPS and GLONASS as well as international roaming guarantee you a safe, worldwide operation at favourable conditions.
Crane handling or inappropriate handling during loading or unloading may lead to tank damage. The three-axis shock detection registers all relevant events indicating time and position, making it possible to draw conclusions about probable causes.
To improve the utilization of your transport assets, you need reliable key figures on the individual transport and handling times of a round trip. The modern business intelligence technology of our SAVVY® Synergy Portal enables you to automatically identify round trips even over several stations. Automatically generated reports inform you about time losses. In addition you have the possibility to make objective comparisons, e.g. of carriers or transshipment points.
Setting target temperature for temperature-controlled transports via third-party personnel is time-consuming and error-prone. Thanks to our 2-way communication, you can remotely control the setpoint or the unit activity. This prevents on-site entry errors and damage to the goods. All changes and error statuses are logged and can be used for your quality control.
The automatic stock control gives you a daily updated overview of the stock of different container types in different branches and loading locations. The clear reports support you in efficient disposition and indicate any over- or understocks at an early stage.
SAVVY® supports you in getting your goods safely and undamaged to their destination. Potential damage can be avoided by detecting deviations of the actual temperature from the target temperature and reporting them immediately – enabling you to react promptly. This alarm can be sent to the dispatcher and your end customer. Both temperature records and alarm events are logged and can be sent automatically as a report.
SAVVY® supports you with valuable information for your yard management. The current positions of the containers are reliably displayed, even if they are at the bottom of the stack.
SAVVY® provides you with customized solutions from a single source: Connectivity, software and all hardware required in rail freight transport as well as hardware, gateways and sensors.
