Pathfindr develops smart device for IBC monitoring

Pathfindr has developed a new device for IBC monitoring, the Pathfindr Smart IBC. It has been designed to help companies keep track of their global and local IBC shipments.

The technology gauges an individual IBC’s fluid level, which can help inform companies over real-time fluid levels, any loss or damage during transit or storage, as well as providing the status of ambient conditions such as temperature and humidity.

Via Pathfindr’s online platform, users can set delivery and pump-off alerts, to help increase invoicing efficiency and speed, and instantly view all current stock holdings and locations.

Ben Sturgess, founder and CTO at Pathfindr, says: ‘There is huge growth in the use of rigid IBCs for global shipping of goods, which are often of high value or cause a major impact on a business if they run out. Additionally, some fluids are extremely dangerous if compromised. Companies often don’t have the systems to keep pace and keep track – that’s where our new smart tech comes in.’
