Container Management

Ensure maximum transparency in the container cycle


Seamless Tracking of Containers


Nowadays, companies have a large number of suppliers and therefore a large number of container variants. The absolute number of containers has also increased significantly. This results in a lack of transparency regarding container movements and inventories. Since containers are usually purchased, they represent a significant portion of the company’s balance sheet. Scheduling containers correctly is an essential part of lean management concepts, since products cannot be provided to product lines without containers.  


Companies need transparency when it comes to container inventories and movements so that production does not have to be stopped due to inventory shortages; the right container can always be scheduled, and each container can be tracked seamlessly. platbricks Container Management ensures the seamless tracking of containers and synchronizes container cycles with the production plan.
