Planning your inland shipping logistics is time consuming and expensive. Availability of barges is opaque and key information of the transport is unclear and will reach personnel with delay. If this is costing your company time and money, welcome to QaMobile. We use technology to make transporting goods simpler, more transparent and cheaper. You follow your transport realtime via a webapp on your computer, tablet or smartphone. You will always have realtime access to the barge’s operational information. Next to extensive fuel savings, you will increase the safety and reliability of your transport. And you will only be bothered with information you would like to see.
Through a realtime data connection you will have access to one single source of truth.
The data collected on board is translated into information by our unique software.
Amongst many others the following data can be collected:
• The exact location of the barge
• Its destination
• The duration of the trip
• Start and end time of the trip
• The expected arrival time
• The current fuel consumption
• The product and quantity on board
• The arrival time at location
• The average speed
• The current speed
• Start and stop time of loading and unloading
• Which crew is on board, and their credentials
All data is stored and accessible for at least 7 years.
This data can be combined into specific information that can be crucial for your company.
Based on pre-defined norms you will only be presented the information you would like to
see. You can for example receive an email or text message when:
• The fuel consumption is larger than 100 litres per hour
• A terminal is sailed into
• A barge is sailing more hours than is allowed based on the personnel on board
• The speed of a barge reduces from 19 to 0 km/h in 50 meters
• A barge is not in a terminal or lock and not sailing for more than 2 hours
In addition you can easily create your own reports, e.g.:
• Average waiting time per terminal
• The actual loading time as a percentage of time between start loading and receiving papers
• The average fuel consumption per section
• The traveling time per section per barge
• The speed of a barge entering a lock
