Conexbird and Transval revolutionize cargo’s binding security with new technology

As the first logistics operator in the world Transval deploys technology utilizing learning artificial intelligence to confirm and secure loading and lashing operations. The artificial intelligence further enhances the safety of the cargo during transportation and raises the likelihood of cargo to stay intact.

The service and new technology is especially aimed to bring benefits for the cargo owner but every party involved will benefit from the raising security. Without unwanted surprises the projects will be completed within their schedules, money and environment are saved and long wanted competitive edge is brought to the Finnish industries.

During the year 2017 the availability of the service is expanded and provided for new customers. While widening the availability of the service it is optimized for new kinds of cargo to which Transval is actively looking for interested exporting companies.

“Transval is looking for better and wider added value services to be offered to our customers. It’s important that we stay on the cutting edge of technology and constantly bring new services to the market. It’s great to be the first company in the world to bring this Finnish advanced technology to our customers”, describes Transval’s Project Director Janne Tossavainen.

The technology is launched in cooperation with Finnish Conexbird Ltd. “Conexbird has patented and developed this technology for a few years now. It’s great to find a positive response to our thoughts from Transval who also provides excellent use cases for our technology. Our cooperation has been brilliant”, says the CEO of Conexbird, Teuvo Heikkilä.

To secure the shipments Transval utilizes Conexbird’s mobile application packed with intelligent picture analyse capabilities and a specific tool based on vibration technology. Making use of vibration analysis the device evaluates the tightness of the shipment’s binding and detects changes like movement of the cargo or loosening of a binding chain.

Conexbird Wave customized for warehouses is now ready for action!

We’re proud to tell you that after a highly successful testing period in Kotka Harbour, Finland our service meets the requirements set earlier this year!

We are more than excited to provide this advantage to warehouses. Why? This is the first time in the history of the world when this kind of solution, which combines IoT and artificial intelligence, is available for logistics operators. If we look two years back - this could be done technically, but it wouldn’t be economically viable.

The technology has been hardened in a real environment and we have made hundreds of tweaks (small and bigger ones). Biggest improvements have been made in the physical implementation of the service. A few devices took a little damage during the journey but it was all worth it! It’s all clear now - we are the first company in world that can provide such a comprehensive solution for cargo safety.

We are starting deliveries of warehouse-tailored Wave during fall 2016.

Conexbird brings artificial intelligence to loading docks in Finland

Together with Multi-Link Terminals Ltd. Oy Conexbird is building the first port in the world that uses intelligent container cranes to optimize container flow. Conexbird OnFly systems will be installed into the container crane of MLT Kotka port in Kotka, Finland.

Conexbird OnFly will provide accurate real time data and information about the condition of the containers. The data is immediately synced into the Conexbird Cloud to make it instantly accessible all over the world.

The patented system will automatically alert required parties if needed and with web-based user interface the condition information can be simultaneously accessed by every container handler at the port and can be send in seconds to any other relevant party.

This will enable operations such as recalling badly damaged containers instantly, dropping the lift count of a single container, and generating extremely important data for all parties in the business. These include insurance companies, depots, cargo owners, container owners, and more.

As partner of Conexbird Wind, MLT Kotka is now part of the future of internet of things, artificial intelligence and big data a reality, already today. Wind can be easily fitted into any port operator’s or container depot’s workflow to fasten container flow and to give advantage over others.

Conexbird Wind can be integrated into any container hub, port or depot. Higher efficiency in ports and container depots will, for instance, lower lift counts, radically decrease the distance driven with container stackers and equivalent container handling devices, lower the amount of unnecessary shipments of badly damaged containers and more.
