The Cargo Carousel System (CCS) provides a method for extending stock capacity by creating semi permanent stock locations for rapid response to any sized disaster and supports surge capacity for international operations management. As a tool for rapid deployment, their are few systems available that can match the efficiency, scalability, flexibility and sustainability of the CCS.
Each of the modules are an approximate four foot cube that can be used as a rack for reusable plastic totes/trays, as a hanger for clothing or as an open space for anything imaginable. These module are suspended from the Carousel to better absorb shock and are enclosed to better protect their contents. The enclosure is lockable to deter theft and sealable for transporting across borders and loading docks are not required because the Carousel moves the cubic modules to the forefront of the container so their contents can be accessed even when containers are stacked.
The framework for each of the Carousels that the modules fit into can be any length to fit inside any intermodal containers which are weatherproof and stackable allowing storage anywhere, on or off the trailer, and in as many quantities as needed for local rapid deployment. Eliminating costly warehouse space that often goes unused in exchange for mobile space that can be adjusted as needed anywhere it’s needed at any time it’s needed dramatically improves efficiency. Pre-stocking individual modules or entire containers offers tremendous flexibility and scalability to suit requirements and available refrigerated units allow pharmaceuticals, perishables and frozen products to also be stored or transported anytime it’s needed anywhere it’s needed as well.
With RFID, GPS and sensor (temperature, humidity, light exposure, shock, movement, O2, CO2, ethylene, etc.) technologies available for each module with real-time monitoring and alerting combined with cellular communication and an automatic redundant, satellite back-up system, the atmosphere of each module can be monitored and controlled confidently from anywhere in the world and from as many locations as desired.
Our open architecture and public API’s (Application Program Interface) allows seamless integration with any legacy system and can connect and network current data that is trapped in silos for new analytical capabilities, artificial intelligence and links from logistics to relief operations for superior mobile communication and management from multiple locations around the world with multiple users synchronized in real-time.
