Global servicing staff now has a digital tool as its disposal to register the activity it performs on the containers. This gives management full traceability of all maintenance work, and thus a centralized overview of all servicing data. Also, the system contains the latest versions of all repair instructions and manuals, including recent modifications, and it enables remote support for training as well. According to the inContext people involved in the project, an interesting challenge in developing this global digital servicing platform has been fitting it to the working methods and skills of personnel in different countries and regions – for instance focusing on visual instructions and image support instead of text, to make the platform useable for people with a limited knowledge of English.
As some of you may know, I’m currently on a 6 week long hiking trip across the Pyrenees, from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean. The route is called the HRP, and it’s around 770 km with about 40 km total elevation gain (and loss…). I’ve been sleeping in a tent every night and carrying around 3 days of food.
