Fill Level is a new feature of Schoeller Allibert’s SmartLink® system. As the name suggests, it keeps you informed of the fill level of your intermediate bulk containers (IBCs). It’s quite a revolutionary improvement.
Is the glass half full or half empty? That depends: are you an optimist or a pessimist? In logistics, it’s better to be a realist instead. And to know exactly how full (or empty) your IBCs are. The standard procedure: check each one manually, at the expense of a lot of time and manpower.
Schoeller Allibert has a better solution, says Frederik Dejans, the company’s Global Product & IoT Director: “It’s called Fill Level, and it does exactly what the name suggests, it feeds you a constant stream of data on the fill levels of your logistics assets.”
Here’s how. The technological framework for Fill Level is called SmartLink®, a logistics application developed and offered exclusively by Schoeller Allibert. Setting industry standards, SmartLink® connects logistical assets to the internet, allowing operators to monitor their status and movements.
One critical status element for liquid and other variable assets is the fill level of particular containers. That’s why Schoeller Allibert developed the feature of the same name – and natively integrated it in ChemiFlow®, its family of bulk containers specifically designed for the transport of hazardous materials.
SmartLink® is the future of logistics management. It automatically informs you of the location, the recent movements, and even the interior temperature of an asset. Fill Level adds a crucial element: keeping you up to date on the fill status of the asset. Is it completely full? At half capacity? Or perhaps just at 25%?
Via SmartLink®, Fill Level can even be used to set an alarm if and when your assets fall below a certain fill threshold. If, say, your container is at a quarter capacity, you could let the system alert you to fill the respective IBCs up to full again – maximizing usage, productivity, and ultimately: profit.
Fill Level is part of SmartLink®, a top-of-the-line system that is exclusive to Schoeller Allibert, and which is raising the standard for efficiency in the logistics industry to new levels. But you don’t have to spend a lot to acquire SmartLink®. You can rent it instead. It’s a double whammy: you save on capital expenditure, and you get the latest, smartest version of SmartLink® every time you rent.
Verification is better
Fill Level is an innovative feature that demonstrates, once again, how SmartLink® puts the logistics operator back in the driver’s seat, allowing them to assume a pro-active role as never before. Is your shipment on time? Has it passed all necessary stops? And do the IBCs have the right temperature and – yes – the right fill level?
You don’t have to guess anymore. SmartLink® will tell you what you need to know, so you can take the appropriate action. Trust is good. Verification is better. And SmartLink® is best!
