Connected Depot

Online check-in for trucks and terminals prior to arrival

FASTEN YOUR SEATBELT FOR ...

Load authorization 4.0

Imagine an application that helps to shorten the entrance-to-exit process at terminals significantly. And, at the same time, renders it more secure. Connected Depot revolutionizes truck handling in tank storage facilities. Via the new cloud-based functionality “Online Check-in”, it simplifies and streamlines product loading in oil, gas and chemical terminals.

Connected Depot links all partakers in real time. It keeps them in the loop regarding the latest developments and lets them carry out key work steps before the truck has even arrived at the gate. This supports a seamless process from planning to execution – even in cases that involve several terminals and customers.

"The online check-in is a perfect opportunity for us to solve the typical problems that usually occur at the entrance gate in advance. For example problems with shipments, load ids, truck or driver data. This reliefs our employees on site. In addition we can shorten the time spent at the entrance gate."

CONNECTED DEPOT ...

An easy to integrate micro-service

Connected Depot is easy to integrate with trip scheduling and terminal management solutions. As a result, it ensures a seamless process from planning to execution across a variety of customers and terminals. The functionality supports both web-based and mobile input by the driver. Alternatively, it can be integrated with fleet transport scheduling systems.

Connected Depot conducts all terminal specific checks before arrival: Contractual load authorization. Hazardous goods regulation (e.g. ADR). Product availability. For this purpose, the app allows cloud-based verification against 3rd party systems combined into one ocheck-in: SAP based checks of product seller. Customs validity permissions (e.g. EMCS). Driver permissions (e.g. driver license).
