Return on Investment: Why Pneumatic Tube Systems?

When routine logistic tasks can be handled at a speed of 6-8m/sec rather than on foot, the performance of your entire operation is enhanced. Aerocom air tube systems can save on two of the most valuable assets in any business, time and money. There is an added benefit beyond the black and white savings of money and time.

The profitability of an Aerocom pneumatic tube system could be calculated as follows:

R x T / 60

R = Route (how often)
T = Time spent per route in minutes
60 = Conversion factor from minutes to hours
e.g. 30 times a day shipping documents (such as delivery notes, facsimiles and other documents) and laboratory samples must be transported from one office to the other. This will take approximately 10 minutes for going back and forth and adds to the following figures:

R x T / 60 = 30 x 10 / 60 = 5 h / day x 250 working days = 1250 hours per year
Assuming an hourly cost of €31.00, then the annual expense savings will be €38,750.

And the other important thing is: Nothing can get lost during the transport with a pneumatic tube system, things remain confidential and if you forgot something, simply send it with the next carrier.
