Barcelonesa is a globally operating company dedicated to distributing a wide range of chemical products through various transportation methods, including IBCs, Jerricanes, Cisterns.  Their product portfolio includes critical substances such as Sulfuric acid, Nitric acid, Sodium Peroxide, and Caustic soda. Core challenges faced by Barcelonesa encompass managing temperature-sensitive products, maintaining fill levels, preventing theft, and ensuring overall security throughout the transportation process. 

Tailored approach to IBCs and transportation efficiency 

Barcelonesa had been our customer for a longer time for their IBC's. But they faced a new initial challenge: it involved the limitations of the previous IBCs, which hindered the automation of the washing process. Schoeller Allibert customized their Chemiflow IBCs to meet their needs. By centralizing the position of the upper product filling inlet, they ensured greater convenience and compatibility with their operations. This change enhanced product offerings and customer satisfaction, especially with Rotomolding containers. The IBC's are 100% plastic which makes them hard to break and easy to repair. In other words they have a long life span, which makes them a sustainable choice.

However, the true game-changer was the integration of Schoeller Allibert's advanced IoT solution, Smartlink. By combining the cutting-edge technology with the existing reusable/returnable transport packaging (RTP), their IBCs were transformed into smart assets capable of tracking data such as position, fill level, and temperature automatically. This integration has not only given them peace of mind in tracking valuable assets but also opened up pathways to a more sustainable approach, optimizing reverse logistics and promoting responsible consumption. 

“Utilizing plastic IBCs equipped with Smartlink has revolutionized how we manage our inventory. The real-time monitoring and fill level detection capabilities have provided us with invaluable insights into our stock levels, ensuring we're always ahead of demand. This not only optimizes our supply chain but also enhances our ability to meet customer demands promptly.“
