Third-Party Storage Terminal -
Inventory Monitoring

Many tank farm and terminal operations
management systems often rely on
manual field operations.

As many monitoring tasks are performed
manually, the risk of error increases, as
does the time to realize that something
has gone wrong, both can have a major
impact on the safety and the
environment as well as financial losses.

The manual procedures found in many
of today's terminals, require a high
level of operational instructions to
execute a simple line up - an approach
that is both time consuming and prone
to error.
This execution relies on staff experience
and tends to be inconsistent from shift
to shift due to the topology of many tank
farms. There are "pockets" of knowledge
that exist for specific areas of the
facility, where shifts may know certain
areas well, while other shifts are more
familiar with other areas.

This can create difficulties, delays, and
product contaminations, simply due to
the fact that most operations do not
have a single source of expertise across
the entire facility.

We believe that a strong linkage
between tank farms, terminal operations
and the planning and scheduling teams
require a high degree of teamwork and
knowledge sharing to effectively
schedule movements, more so when
multiple customers utilize the same
