Cemex has launched Cemex Go Quarry Link, a programme aimed at improving product pick up and maximising efficiency for aggregates customers.
Cemex USA’s president Jaime Muguiro, says: “By leveraging technology and connecting our quarries digitally, we are able to give our customers additional value by reducing the time they need to spend at our quarries and allowing them to get back to their projects.”
The company says Cemex Go Quarry Link provides real-time truck monitoring as well as better product visibility and loadout processes.
Under the programme at FEC Quarry, customers order aggregates prior to arrival. When entering the plant, RFID sensors scan tags on customer trucks, and Cemex begins to digitally-process the corresponding orders. Trucks are scanned again at the entrance scales and customers are then directed to corresponding automated loadout stations. Digital technology helps produce the required aggregate mixes. Loaded trucks are then weighed on exit scales designed to ensure load accuracy and an automated dispatch system expedites the end ticketing process.
Graham Hardwick, Cemex USA vice president of aggregates—west region, says: “Cemex Go Quarry Link offers a connected, digital solution that provides greater transparency to the whole process, enabling our customers to better manage their time and business.”
Cemex is also piloting the digital Cemex Go Pick-Up app, allowing customers to know wait times and have greater visibility of available products.
