Intermediate Bulk Container Tracking Benefits Metano Customer

June 30, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
MILLSTONE TWP., NJ — Metano IBC Services, Inc.'s tracking system provided the right combination of convenience and information to help a major personal care products manufacturer improve the testing and repair of its intermediate bulk container fleet.

"They were having difficulties keeping track of the test dates for each stainless steel IBC and weren't able to forecast the next testing date," Metano President Tom Wilkins said. "Tracking test dates is particularly important because of UN and DOT rules that require periodic testing and recertification of intermediate bulk containers."

Other benefits of Metano's mobile asset management system include the ability to track:

  • shipment and delivery dates at an unlimited number of locations
  • the condition, location, status and product for each intermediate bulk container
  • a complete container history, including details on the unit's movements and maintenance

  • The maintenance records also proved used to the personal care products manufacturer, which was able to better track repairs and improve the efficiency of its operations.

    Millstone Twp-based Metano is a well-regarded leader in the stainless steel IBC rental market. For for more details on how intermediate bulk container tracking made a difference for its customer, visit
