The answer is our patented oscillation solution. During the lifting process, we can determine whether a container is good or bad, and if so, how severe it is. Thus, we help container owners to reduce time, costs and emissions without violating equipment or processes.
Before an emptied container is sent to a cargo owner to be refilled, the standard procedure is to run it through a depot first to check it’s suitability for use, through manual, human inspection. Whilst this is important to ensure satisfied cargo owners, some units are structurally sound and do not create benefits from being revised. With ConexBird’s structural insights, sound empty containers can be rerouted to skip this process entirely; saving handling costs and asset downtime.
Within each container fleet, there will be containers that are structurally fragile and therefore need replacing. As they are difficult to detect, fleet operators own a continuous buffer that incurs costs, in terms of land rental and new container acquisition. ConexBird is able to identify the weakest elements of a container fleet, allowing to remove them from circulation; costs associated with this buffer are therefore reduced.
Whenever a container is found to be damaged, the optimal repair solution can only be made if the "full picture" of the container's condition is taken into account. Our solution allows container owners to minimize repair inefficiencies thanks to a thorough understanding of the state of their fleets.
With container structures often unknown, it's no surprise that shippers frequently reject cargo containers based on their condition. This produces major operational and opportunity costs for shipping lines and other supply-chain stakeholders. We can solve this problem entirely by detecting unsuitable containers before they are sent to be loaded.
Cargo damage resulting from the use of unsuitable containers is in excess of €1.2 billion every year. We can detect damaged containers before they are sent to be loaded, thus minimizing the risk of improper stowage.
Weak containers create numerous safety risks. For instance, they can trigger container-stack collapse and cause significant damage to their surroundings. ConexBird can ensure that weak, fragile containers are detected before being placed in unsafe locations: Smart, safer stacking.
