Digitally delivered Readymix concrete, speeding up construction
Typically the construction industry is behind other industries in utilising technology to improve product quality and delivery.
Opinion and personal judgement are often used to inform decision making at critical process points largely due to the absence of any facts or data.
Using IoT connected sensors, to monitor, measure and manage critical properties, gives visibility of the concrete & truck at all times during the delivery cycle, ensuring that the concrete is ready to pour on arrival.
Why should we care about this?
Delivery cycle times for loads delivered in this way, are lower than traditional delivery methods as there is no need to adjust concrete at site before use. All truck movements across delivery phases are available for analysis alongside concrete properties.
Our case studies with concrete producers and contractors will show that utilisation of this data leads to environmental, safety and efficiency improvements:
- The producer can deliver more concrete with the same sized fleet
- The site can gain valuable improvements in productivity.
- There is a positive environmental impact from reducing fuel usage & emissions.
- Truck routes & site layouts can be improved and multi vehicle movements reduced
