COVID-19 has led to new workflows to keep your site, employees and customers safe for start-up, with tools to support social distancing.
U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has included E-Tickets in its "Every Day Counts" (EDC-6) collaboration with state, local and tribal transportation agencies. More than 12 state DOTs now use e-Ticketing for construction contracts.
E-Tickets are a more efficient, digital method to track, exchange and archive construction materials information. As an aggregate producer, check that your operations are ready ahead of the upcoming construction season, as the number of DOTs using e-Ticketing increases.
Trimble LOADRITE L3180 loader scales and Insight web portal are a simple way to enable the e-Ticket digital workflow. Read more at goloadrite.com/product/etickets
For a hybrid solution, sites may choose to deliver both an E-Ticket and a Print-at-Gate option. This workflow sends the load ticket from the loader cab to a printer kiosk at the exit, that supports material pick-up with a contactless workflow, while also providing the security of a paper ticket, that some customers prefer.
Remote quarry performance management
One of the most effective ways to keep your team safe is to restrict the number of staff at site. For non-operational workers, like management they can be effective in monitoring productivity without needing to step on site.
Smart web reporting products like Trimble Insight provide a real-time visibility of actual vs. target production and inventory. Trimble Insight helps optimize your quarry operations providing the right data, in real time, and actionable insights to make the right decisions with confidence. Trimble Insight provides actionable insights to identify, respond and solve issues, control inventory and increase productivity.

Payload Management and the Connected Quarry
Many quarries across the US are already equipped with LOADRITE scales on loaders, excavators, haul trucks and conveyors, ensuring a reliable track record of accurate payload measurement. For many sites, upgrading to new digital workflows only requires connectivity to the web portal. Trimble has authorized dealers nationwide to support quarry operations visibility for more efficient operations and higher profits.
