The Monitoring of Chemical Tank Containers

The security and the monitoring of vehicles, containers, merchandise and pretty much anything precious, continue to be our primary concern. Our advanced hardware solutions and IoT platforms are made for virtually any purpose and we always strive to solve more and more problems for any industry or clients.

Such a need for the versatile solutions of Starcom Systems has risen in the delivery process of chemical materials in Isotank containers. A tank container is an intermodal container for the transport of liquids, gases, and powders as bulk cargo. An Isotank container is built to the ISO standards, making it suitable for different modes of transportation for both hazardous and non-hazardous products.

It goes without saying that the delivery of chemicals is an extremely sensitive process and should have high-security protocols. However, in the present situation, it isn’t the case. Currently, there is an Inability to effectively plan the Isotank container’s delivery route without any monitoring capability. The sensitive nature of the transported chemicals the cost of the materials and the cost of the Isotank makes monitoring and safe delivery extremely important.

Providing the Isotank with real-time information, through GPS and cellular network, will make the difference. This is where we come in. Starcom Systems has signed a substantial agreement with ICL, a global manufacturer of products based on unique minerals, for the supply of Kylos Forever units. Those units along with the specially designed decision support AI system will enable ICL to improve the supply chain.

Kylos Forever will provide data regarding the container’s location and condition. It will track the Isotank over a year without charging or any other maintenance. The unit will update its location and alert any time it will arrive or departure to any destination port or customer. The data will send directly to the customer management system so he can understand the current situation and take care only in case of violation of the planed lead time. In combination with Starcom Online, the data helps make the chemical delivery process efficient and reliable.

With very large numbers of Isotank containers currently in the world, this segment is truly a primary target for our products to be utilized in a better supply chain monitoring and IoT development platform.
