New management system provides secure monitoring for container fleet

Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group has introduced a new fleet management system to monitor, analyse and store information for customers using its bespoke Track and Trace and Health and Usage Monitoring System on its containers.

The management system acts as a secure interface between its equipment and customers, to give accurate information to manage the life of the containers and keep them working in optimum condition.

Steve Nokes, Programme Manager for DVOW, the multi-million pound contract between the Dutch Armed Forces and Marshall for more than 1,400 military containers, said:

“We developed our Track and Trace and Health and Usage Monitoring System to enable us to manage the life of our customers’ container systems and this secure interface plays an integral part in that,”

“Being able to provide useful data to customers enables them to more effectively manage their assets so they are able to fulfil their missions, wherever or whenever needed.”

The management system is about to be installed and ready to receive data in October. It will initially receive location data, followed by the full HUMS information early in 2020. This information will then be transmitted to Marshall’s dedicated office in Holland, as well as to the customer.

It will receive information from individual containers on functions, such as how many hours it has operated and when it is due for maintenance, as well as details of internal HVAC temperatures and the integrity of the structure.
