Title: Automated Cargo Transport Systems


1
AutomatedCargo Transport Systems
  • Plus
  • Real-time
  • Silo Level Information

2
The Company
  • Automated Cargo Delivery System developed by
    owner of cement transport company
  • 30 Reduction in number of tractors drivers
  • Allows 100 consistent unloading procedure
  • Offers real-time inventory information
  • Significantly improves on-time delivery

3
Traditional Situation
  • Driver arrives at site connects hoses
  • Driver requests permission to begin unloading
  • Delivery of product takes approximately 40
    minutes

4
Traditional Disadvantages
  • Tractor driver must be present to unload
  • On-time delivery is critical, cannot be
    proactive
  • Waiting time can be a significant factor
  • Problems due to driver unloading errors
  • Problems associated with faulty bin HIGH alarm

5
Automated Cargo Transport System
  • Increases deliveries/day/tractor
  • Tremendous dispatch flexibility
  • 30 Reduction in number of tractors drivers
  • Real-time inventory management

6
The Patented Process
  • ACTS computers control unloading process using
    patented algorithms to cycle valves based on silo
    level and tank pressure.
  • Tanker can be delivered in off hours and be
    utilized as a secondary silo. This frees the
    tractor and driver to deliver at other sites.
  • ACTS control system uses the unloading process to
    give you a competitive advantage.

7
Primary Components
  • Located at Ready Mix Plant
  • Real-time radar level sensors on silos
  • Blower
  • Control panel
  • Located on Tanker
  • Control valves
  • Pressure transducers
  • Control panel

8
System Overview
9
Silo Level Sensor
  • Utilizes reliable radar technology
  • No moving parts
  • Provides continuous real-time level information

10
The Blower
  • Installed at ready mix plant
  • Runs at constant RPM- No driver panic shutdown-
    Lower cost to operate- Less maintenance

11
Silo Control Panel
  • Mounted at ready mix plant- NEMA 4X protection
  • Uses PLC/Digital technology
  • Controls silo level blower
  • Silo levels tracked on- Intranet or Internet

12
TankerControl Panel
  • NEMA 4X protection- PLC- Solenoid Valves-
    Pressure Sensors- Pressure Gauges
  • Easy access for manual operationpermits
    deliveries at non-automated plants

13
Control Valves
  • Automated valves
  • Controls product flow
  • Avoids plugged lines

14
Two Quick Connections

The Results
  • No waiting for silo capacity no overfilled
    silos
  • Unloading procedure is 100 consistent- pressure
    control is automatic accurate
  • Bag house is properly cleaned every time
  • Proactive dispatch - simply go to nearest empty
    tanker location

19
Additional Opportunities
  • Lighter tractor more payload capacity
  • Increased driver loyalty- spends more time
    driving- beats morning rush at pick up location
  • Increased silo capacity option for
    multi-tanker drop at single ready mix plant

20
Actual Model
  • Manual System
  • 40 minutes or more delivery time
  • 3 Deliveries/Tractor/Day (Based on average of 50
    miles one way)
  • 3 Tractors per 3 Tankers
  • Automated System
  • Gain 40 minutes or moreper delivery
  • 4 Deliveries/Tractor/Day
  • 2 Tractors per 3 Tankers

21
Actual Business Model Results
  • Reduces tractors by 30
  • Reduces drivers and overhead by 30
  • Real-time silo inventory management
  • Increases flexibility of delivery schedule
  • Eliminates driver unloading errors

22
Installations
  • Proven track record of more than 8 years
  • Proven savings to hauler and cement user
  • Ability to provide managed inventory program via
    real-time silo level sensors internet software

23
Economic Strategic Benefits
  • More deliveries per tractor Reduction in -
    expenses (capital annual)
  • - liabilities
  • Fast system payback
  • Eliminate material shortages- Real-time silo
    level information- Proactive delivery schedule-
    Additional storage- Consistent unloading
    pressures procedures

24
Benefits Summary
  • 30 Reduction in capital annual expenses
  • Real-time inventory control
  • Proactive tanker dispatch (eliminate waiting
    time)
  • 100 Consistent unloading procedure
  • Increased loyalty between hauler cement user
