Frequently Asked Questions

A detailed site survey will be completed by Automated Cargo Transport Systems. The results of this survey will be utilized by ACTS to prepare financial justification models for both transportation and ready mix owners.

Now through a patented system, the unloading process gives you a strategic advantage. ACTS has proven to be effective over hundreds of thousands of delivery cycles. Contact ACTS today to learn how you can implement this system.

Automated Cargo Transport Systems maintains a complete inventory of spare parts ready for immediate shipment. All components are designed to be “plug and play”. Installation can be performed by ACTS service technicians, factory authorized contractors, or the owner/operator.

Automated Cargo Transport Systems will submit a detailed implementation plan and will coordinate all activities. The installation will be staged in a manner that best fits the owner’s schedule. An appropriate combination of ACTS employees and contractors will do the work.

All tanker control panels provide the option to override the automated system. Rather than manually adjusting valve handle positions, the driver simply utilizes push buttons located in tanker control panel.

With traditional tanker unloading, a driver must manually monitor the process. When a blockage or bridge occurs, he performs a series of valve adjustments to correct the problem. With ACTS monitoring of pressures and adjustment procedures are automatic. The potential for human error and oversight are eliminated.

1. Blower from tanker can be relocated, or a new blower can be installed at ready mix plant.
2. Industrial radar level sensors are installed on each silo.
3. Silo control panel is installed at ready mix plant. The panel includes an industrial grade retractable cable to allow quick connection from silo control panel to tanker control panel.
4. The industrial grade compressed air line is installed to allow quick connection from ready mix compressor to tanker.
5. Optional Internet, Ethernet, and/or cell phone notification system can be added at any time.

1. Existing butterfly valves on the tanker are modified by adding industrial pneumatic valve operators and feedback devices.
2. Pressure sensors are added to strategic locations on the tanker.
3. Tanker control panel is mounted on the tanker. This contains tanker and cargo identification equipment, control hardware and pressure gauges.
4. The blower is removed from the tanker and relocated to ready mix plant.
