Owners of transportation companies are constantly searching for ways to improve service to their customers and make their companies more competitive. Having a driver “baby-sit” a pneumatic tanker for 45 to 90 minutes while it is unloading was a prime target for efficiency improvements. Furthermore, to improve logistics management it made sense to develop a system that would allow all appropriate parties to view real-time inventory levels in silos.
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 automate the pneumatic tanker unloading process and create a real-time inventory management system.

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 Level Information – create a “window” to see via Internet how much inventory is contained in silos
* Automatic 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
Automated Cargo Transport Systems (ACTS) was perfected with strategic business partners, who are leaders in the design, manufacture and servicing of control systems. ACTS focuses 100% of its efforts and resources on automatic pneumatic tanker unloading systems and providing real-time inventory management systems.
ACTS offers these advanced systems with an investment that will result in a two-year (or less) payback. We look forward to presenting the details and benefits of these systems to you; especially the reliability and economic benefits which we are certain your business will realize.
