Case Study - Improving ISOtanks Round-Trip Cycle

Case Study - Improving ISOtanks Round-Trip Cycle

Current situation

 Round-trip process has many owners

  • round-trip cycle example

     

    • Only 614 ISOtanks (76%) are taking part of the cycle

     
    cycle funnel

    • The average round-trip in current situation is 124 days, 2.9 round trips per year, total of 1780 ISOtanks are used in a year

     
    round trip per year

    • Total time in the local site is 22.3 days (with High variability) , and the standard time taken for planning is 18 days
  • There is a lack of structures methodology of working with storage devices
  • Partial enforcement over the agreements regarding delays in the demurrage days



Challenge

  • Management and control:
    • Establishment of operational & organizational structure that wil bring the ISOtank to maximize utilization
