Transport and logistics service provider HOYER Group has equipped more than 10,000 tanks with its smart technology.

The German company delivers chemical products, foodstuffs, gas and mineral oil in tank containers, road tankers, flexitanks and IBCs safely and efficiently to destinations around the world.

Monitoring the parameters of products in transit, e.g temperature, filling level, pressure and the tank containers location, are important factors in this operation, based on which the safety, security, efficiency and consistent quality of transport movements are guaranteed.

To design the tank container fleet’s controls even more efficiently, HOYER began initial tests of telematics solutions twenty years ago. With Smart Logistics, the company is today an innovation leader in the intelligently networked logistics field, and offers smart solutions to monitor, analyse and optimise logistics processes, including upgrading the fleet to Smart Tanks.

According to Marlen Blechschmidt, Head of Digitalisation Business Unit Netlog at HOYER, “By using this technology, our Smart Tank will report deviations in critical load parameters, thus offering our customers even more safety, quality and efficiency for the product being transported.”

The ATEX certification of the HOYER technology is an additional seal of quality.

Heiko Rumfeld, Director Business Unit Netlog at HOYER, added, “Over 10,000 tanks equipped with smart technology strengthen our market position and innovation leadership. The demand and customer feedback confirm the success of our Smart Tanks.”
