Ready Mix Concrete Truck Monitoring

Use Case

Real-time monitoring of ready mix concreate trucks and mixing drums

Ready Mix Concrete requires care and timely delivery to provide optimal specified results in construction projects.

While disparate solutions exist for tracking various elements of activity, there have been limited options for a holistic view of Ready Mix Concrete vehicles and their performance.

In addition to traditional vehicle tracking and routing features, to achieve a true benefit the delivery and mixing system must also be monitored to ensure that the mixing speed and ratio of water flow are operating as intended. Rapid alerts allow for operators to make corrections before problems occur. When managing a fleet of vehicles, optimized routing is essential to improve margins and efficiency of delivery.
