Port operators can create a leading edge by offering novel insight into the condition of their clients’ containers, thus retaining and attracting business. Our oscillation solution reduces time, costs and emissions without damaging equipment or disrupting processes.
Container port operators and ConexBird create a partnership. The port operator grants access to the infrastructure and equipment required to measure the condition of each lifted container with the oscillation technology attached to the spreader. In turn, the operator receives a share of the generated revenue. Together, port operators and ConexBird provide a state-of-the-art solution that is extending the port operators service portfolio and is creating an added value for both parties and mutual clients.
The financial investment in increasingly connected and digitized container ports is at an all time high. Thus far, however, containers are still handled without much intelligence about their actual condition. This potentially leads, for instance, to unnecessary container movements, questionable workplace safety, and process inefficiencies. With immediate knowledge about the current condition of the container, risks and detour can be avoided.
The performance of container ports is commonly measured by the amount of throughput handled per year. The more time a container spends on the yard, the lower the throughput. Enabling advanced analytics by partnering with ConexBird can optimize yard processes. With more insight, containers can be moved directly to the right destination according to their condition with higher handling speed. Thus, bottlenecks can be resolved and throughput increases.
With land at a premium, container port operators are compelled to maximize their use of available space. With actionable information about the condition of containers the ConexBird technology aims to avoid unnecessary downtime of containers in the yard. Hence, a partnership turns to forward-thinking port operators who could better use their precious space than lock it up for unnecessarily parked containers.
The procedure of stacking containers has improved significantly in recent years. “Smart” stacking aims to prevent reach-stackers and other handling equipment from "digging" for containers that need to move on to their next destination. These solutions increase operational efficiency, yet they universally fail to consider one critical factor: the structural integrity of the containers being stacked. While the material damage resulting from collapsing container stacks is evident, it also represents a serious safety issue, which continues to claim lives within the industry. With ConexBird, you can ensure that weak, fragile containers are detected before being placed in unsafe locations.
