Cleaning

Speed up by minimizing paperwork overhead!   

Cleaning containers and trailers on your depot and managing al administration around the process can be a time-consuming task. Every product requires a specific approach or treatment, making a planning can be a full day job.

Depot Software helps you build programs and schedules, which are automatically built from the clean methods attached to the chemical product of each respective compartment.

The module has an easy to use interactive drag & drop queue planning board of cleaning orders and comes with visual presentation of lanes and queues.

Additional Features

In collaboration with TCE, we have developed a new feature for DEPOT Software: The Cleaning Touchscreen. Tank Cleaning Europoort (TCE) is a station in the port of Rotterdam for cleaning, heating and storage of tanks and tank containers. TCE is an organization that stands for innovation and high-quality technology and products. The Cleaning Touchscreen is an optimized version of the cleaning process.
