Marine Terminals operate a varied and expensive selection of wheeled handling equipment from:

  • RTG’s
  • Straddle Carriers
  • Front Loaders
  • Empty Lifters
  • Fork Lift trucks
  • Yard Hustlers
  • Chassis

 

Terminals need their handling equipment in peak operating performance and require them to be operational 24x7 365 days a year.  Scheduled maintenance is essential and down time a problem when the terminal is at the peak of operations. The enTIRE asset tracking applications help the terminal's technical team to manage and maintain every aspect of their equipment's tires and rims. Tires are an expensive consumable with prices ranging from 2,500 to 5,000 USD each for individual straddle carrier or RTG tires.  With large facilities operating sizable fleets of handling equipment tire expenses can be a significant annual capital expenditure.

These are a few of the key elements being tracked.

enTIRE offers a full MIS Reporting Module

enTIRE produces statistical data that can be graphically represented to the terminal's technical team through a wide range of reports and charts, ideal when evaluating tire brand performance at the end of each financial year or as and when tires are being purchased.

Other Key Features

  • Linked to hand held tread and pressure survey devices for speedier processing / real-time.
  • Integration to ERP or TOS systems available.
  • TPMS - "Tire Pressure Monitoring System"  - real time air pressure readers to monitor tire pressures on a real time basis.

enTIRE Key Features

  • Tracking tire brands.
  • Tracking warranty information.
  • Total tire inventory (Financial accountability by brand).
  • Hours operated on each tire/rim/vehicle.
  • Number of repairs on each tire.
  • Operating hours for each tire.
  • Tire rotation tracking.
  • Tracking wheel rim repairs and damage.
  • Photo capture of damaged tires and linked back for warranty claims or insurance claims.
  • Tire pressure tracking and integration into live TPMS.

 

enTIRE Benefits

  • Effective data to better analyze tire purchases - costs versus performance and durability.
  • Forecast your upcoming tire requirements.
  • Track failure reasons to help target problem areas.
  • With the TPMS module deployed tire pressures can be tracked - in the event of low pressure it can affect the safety aspects of the handling equipment, cause excessive wear on machinery frames, have an impact on fuel consumption, and of course it shortens a tire's workable life.
