How Can Cargo Signal Improve the Oil and Energy Industry?

Untitled design-Aug-25-2023-06-50-38-6118-PMOil and energy is an essential public service that keeps our cars, households, and businesses running. Energy-related facilities like oil rigs, refineries, and power stations need construction and maintenance equipment on site to keep running.

Here are just a few common challenges that the oil and energy industries face without real-time visibility of crucial components: 

  • Maintenance delays due to late parts and tools to maintain facilities or make emergency repairs  
  • Inability to ensure that carriers that are moving oversize/overweight/restricted materials along DOT-approved routes  
  • Theft or damage of high-value supplies 
  • Field Service Engineers arriving on site without proper tools or equipment  

Build, Service, and Repair Facilities on Time 

Building and maintaining energy facilities is difficult enough. You shouldn’t have to worry whether or not you’ve got the right equipment on hand to get the job done. With Cargo Signal, you’ll be able to track the location of equipment–whether it’s moving from facility to facility or from a remote location–in real time.

This means that you can rest easy knowing when the right equipment will be available. If a tool won’t be available in time or a part is damaged or delayed in transit, Cargo Signal will alert you and your stakeholders so you can plan accordingly, schedule the right number of engineers when needed, and keep everyone updated. 

Maintain Visibility and Flexibility 

When it comes to keeping essential services up and running, planning is everything. With real-time visibility of the location, movement, and quality of your shipments, you’ll know when things will arrive and what condition they’ll be arriving in, saving you time and money in the long run. Say you’ve hired field workers to make repairs next week, but you need to ship in essential equipment for the job.

If there’s a delay, our Command Center will keep you informed, so you won’t lose time and money bringing those workers on site empty-handed. Or say one of your carriers is heading for a route that won’t allow for their oversized load or restricted materials. You’ll hear about that, too, and you’ll have the opportunity to reroute before it’s too late.
