Artificial intelligence and digital reporting are being integrated into industries at a rapid pace, allowing businesses to operate with a greater knowledge of their performance and improved process control. However, this process has been slow in tank
truck transportation, where analog and manually activated technology are the standard.
In some cases, tank trucks are utilizing decades old technology to make fuel deliveries. This leaves the driver in command of all loading and unloading functions, and even the most well-trained, experienced drivers can suffer from a quick lapse in concentration
or judgment. To address and prevent these costly human errors, digital systems utilize failsafes and easy-to-understand interfaces. Rather than replacing drivers, this innovation is giving them a new and improved tool to perform their everyday tasks
with better efficiency and fewer mistakes.
Specific errors prevented by a digital tank truck system include retain, overfill and crossover at terminals and the fueling sites. These systems stop drivers from connecting the wrong trailer compartment to the wrong storage tank, failing to completely
empty a fuel compartment and making other decisions that can hurt bottom lines and retail fuel customers in an instant.
Though a digital solution may seem obvious, getting tank truck equipment to play nicely with each other was no small feat. In order to put a stop to potential errors, each part of the truck has to communicate with one interface. That is a serious ask,
considering it was not too long ago that overfill sensors were finally engineered
Delivering What's Next in Fuel Delivery
Civacon is turning the tide in through its CivaCommand Smart Tank System powered by CivaConnect. This combination of all tank truck technology in one screen is responsible for monitoring and preventing crossover and overfill, while providing smart air controls. And if there happens to be a retain condition, drivers cannot
leave the site without addressing it. The increased uptime and productivity CivaCommand users experience makes this smart solution a no-brainer for promoting profits and customer satisfaction. Stay on top of the latest products and industry
