Petrochemical enterprises have been pooling efforts against the COVID-19 since its outbreak. Chances underpin this crisis. The petrochemical industry has entered a new stage of industrial interconnection. We boast richer Internet tools compared with the SARS period. To help industry practitioners lower the infection risk of the COVID-19 and ensure safe and efficient production and operations, some enterprises have launched smart platforms and tools against this tough battle!
Sinochem Energy High-Tech
Online warehousing + Online visual transportation + Whole-process self-service delivery
A sea-land map at multiple dimensions is provided around the petrochemical supply chain, covering shipping, road transport, and storage.
In the past, customers usually inquired the warehousing and transport status of goods by phone, email, and other means only when vehicle/ship/warehouse staff was on duty. Under the COVID-19, however, many people could not return to work on time.
Sinochem Energy Technology’s intelligent supply chain connects relevant parties in the industry, including online upstream sellers, downstream buyers, warehouses, shipping companies, fleets, commercial inspection agencies, drivers, and port terminals, and gets through the underlying warehousing system for users to query inventory data in real time. It boasts real-time positioning data of national vehicles carrying general cargoes and hazardous chemicals as well as electronic fencing data of national seas and inland rivers and data of hazardous chemicals port terminals to provide the whole-process visual real-time logistics data services, avoiding the untimely customer logistics management inquiries due to the vacancy of personnel in this special period.
With extended holidays, many people are forced to work from home. Family trifles should be well-balanced with efficient and normative warehousing management.
For owners of goods in stock, through the “Remote Order Placing” in Canghaibang of Sinochem Energy Technology’s intelligent supply chain, enterprise legal persons can command for highly safe online order placing and title transfer by CA encryption or face recognition, instead of the original bill of lading placed by WeChat and email, and all operations are effective in real-time, and leave traces.
For warehouse staff, real-time online management of the bill of lading, warehouse production and operations, etc. are allowed by phone or computer whenever and wherever possible to lift the warehousing management by over 70% while effectively reducing personnel contact.
Despite the severe COVID-19 pandemic, in the petrochemical industry, many depots and factories could not suspend production and operations. Shipping and road transport are still under progress.
In addition to reminding customers of being well protected and disinfected, the intelligent supply chain has launched the “Whole-process Self-service Delivery Management System” to enable online management of all delivery links, including the bill of lading, waybill management, filing, vehicle appointment queuing, smart berthing, terminal invoicing machine, terminal weight machine, park gates, and automatic lifting. By doing so, the operation time of vehicles and ships outside the factories, parks, and warehouses can be controlled in an orderly manner to reduce the backlog of vehicles and ships, avoid personnel gathering, and finally help the warehouses, factories, and parks to realize remote office in the planning stage and unattended management mode in the production and operation stage.
