Outline of the Case

Introduction Background

Company A delivers liquids to customers by tank truck (injecting them into storage tanks).
Since the customer's use of liquids fluctuates every month, tank trucks were patrolled to replenish.
There are many customers in remote areas, and the burden of logistics costs is large.
In addition, it was difficult to make a production plan for liquids because they were delivered as needed.

Introduced Solutions
  • We propose a remote monitoring system and control panel for the amount of residual liquid in the storage tank.
  • Use HMS Netbiter EC350 and connect to the mobile phone network with NTT DATA's SIM card.
  • Monitor the remaining amount of liquid in the storage tank from a remote location.
Introduction Results
  1. ● It has become possible to deliver tank trucks that have been patrolled according to the remaining amount of liquid of the customer, and the transportation cost has been reduced.
  2. ● Since it is possible to grasp the amount of liquid used by the customer, it has become possible to make an appropriate production plan for the liquid.
