SmartLink® never takes time off – so you can

Don’t take your work on holiday, they say. But logistics is an industry that never sleeps - and we all depend on its smooth order and delivery process, even in summer. How does a logistics manager rhyme their well-deserved time off with the need to keep the wheels turning? With SmartLink®.

With the help of SmartLink®, you can check in on your logistical chain from anywhere. With just a few taps on your mobile or tablet. Even while you’re on the beach. And once you’re reassured that your important customers are getting their products delivered on time and in the right condition, you can celebrate with another piña colada.

You can do so, knowing that SmartLink® will automatically send you essential reporting, and will alert you if critical thresholds are exceeded, allowing you to quickly, easily and effectively set things right, when required.

IoT application

SmartLink® is an IoT application developed and offered exclusively by Schoeller Allibert. IoT, of course, is short for ‘Internet of Things’. It means you’re not just connecting computers to the internet, but also any other type of object. Including, in the case of   SmartLink®, your logistical assets.

Having those assets online does two things. It makes it easy to track and trace them, which is really useful if you have hundreds or thousands of them. But it also updates you on their status. Are they full or empty? Open or closed? On the move or standing still? Used properly or not? What’s inside? Is it the right temperature? And who’s handling them?

Actionable insights

Talking about the added value of SmartLink® to the logistical chain Frederik Dejans, Global Product & IoT Director at Schoeller Allibert, adds “Not only does SmartLink® take the manual work out of monitoring your logistical assets, but it also adds value by generating actionable insights on how to manage them better. You’re warned immediately when certain thresholds have been exceeded. And if you’re not, you can rest assured that things are going smoothly. Meanwhile, automated reporting provides constant operational updates.”

In so doing, SmartLink® makes work and life easier for logistics managers. The application is compatible with a wide range of Schoeller Allibert bulk product lines, including

  • ChemiFlow, a family of bulk containers for the transport of hazardous materials.

  • Magnum Optimum, a family of foldable Large Containers (FLCs).

  • Combo Excelsior, a family of Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs).

  • JumboNest, a stack- and nestable Rigid Pallet Container (RPC).

Economy and ecology

Each of these container types is made entirely from durable, recyclable plastic, which makes both economical and ecological sense. The addition of SmartLink® technology takes these assets to new levels of efficiency and productivity.

SmartLink® never sleeps – so you can. And SmartLink® never takes time off – so you can.
