Smart Track Loading
Loading count automation for conveyor belt systems
Boost truck loading speedwith auto-ID solutions and IIoT
Conveyor belt configurations in truck loading are essential for shipping large quantities of discrete units. They also present a unique opportunity for optimizing the logistic and safety procedures that are required alongside the physical process. Plantecho Smart Loading system applies automatic identification solutions and industrial IoT technology to capture, validate and control the entire process.
The digitalization of conveyor-based shipments significantly improves the ability of your company to deliver accurately, without missing or excess items, while it also ensures that quality and inventory constrains, such as FIFO or other rules, are enforced properly and with no deviations.
Benefit from low-cost automation solutions
Adding value to existing machinery offers a great opportunity for growth and minimizes the required capital for investments. Applying auto-ID and IIoT technology to conveyor belts is a great example of how this can be achieved.
Smart Truck Loading upgrades conveyor belt systems and delivers all the benefits of digital transformation in the field of product shipment. The auto-ID technology provides a digital tracking system that monitors, traces and controls what is loaded and send to customers.
On the other hand, IIoT monitors and manages machinery to ensure the safe and accurate execution of shipments and to provide awareness to employees when rules are violated or operational conditions are not met.
Invest in the future with value-added and robust technologies
Reduce labor cost
Automated validations and machinery control release valuable resources from low-value tasks and provides a constant flow of information to employees as to what is needed at any given moment in order to fulfill shipment orders. By relieving employees from rule-based tasks and calculations and by assigning them to information systems, personnel efficiency is greatly improved and tasks are completed faster with greater accuracy and minimum errors.
Direct communication with Plantecho WMS or any other back-office software, makes the need for maintaining a paper-based system totally obsolete. Shipment orders and even last-minute changes are pushed automatically and applied to the loading system. On the same manner, shipment execution status and actual results are pushed back to the back-office systems automatically and in real time, without human interaction or any other kind of intervention.
Monitor in real-time
By enabling digital technologies in conveyor-based systems, they become part of a network based interconnected environment that can be monitored remotely and in real-time. That gives you the ability to maintain a live view on shipment schedule and execution progress status. Furthermore, it enables you to gain visibility and valuable insight into operations, which can be used for better decision making and improved responsiveness.
The Smart Truck Loading system is complementary to your existing conveyor belt implementation and therefore requires a limited investment. Furthermore, due to its high-level automation, it requires minimum training and can be applied immediately with measurable results from day-one. The combination of those two factors is ensuring that you will start seeing an immediate and fast return on investment.
