About Automated Cargo Transport Systems

Owners of transportation companies are constantly searching for ways to improve service to their customers and make their companies more competitive. Having a driver “babysit” a pneumatic tanker for 45 to 90 minutes while it is unloading was a prime target for efficiency improvements. ACTS provides an automatic bulk unloading system to allow the driver to drive more and wait for less. Furthermore, to improve logistics management, it made sense to develop a system that would allow all appropriate parties to view real-time silo inventory levels.

3 Minute Overview:

The Automated Cargo Transport System was developed and patented by Andy Hynick, a veteran of the dry bulk transportation industry. After two years of intensive development and testing, Andy achieved his goal to create an automatic bulk unloading system and a real-time silo inventory management system.

ACTS Monitor Software Offers User-Friendly Options

Admin Controls, Master Inventory Of All Sites, Daily and Weekly Usage Reports and more.

From Vision to ACTS

Andy’s vision was to automate the delivery of dry bulk products and overcome problems normally associated with the delivery cycle. The system was created to provide:

* Real-time Silo Inventory Information – create a “window” to see via The internet how much inventory is contained in silos
* Automatic Bulk Unloading – potential 30% reduction in quantity of tractors & drivers required
* Automatic Control – eliminates driver errors associated with plugged lines & overfilled silos
* Dispatch Flexibility – Eliminate time spent waiting for silo capacity
