Timely and Accurate Information

Brannan Sand and Gravel Co. installed Trimble’s TrimFleet telematics suite on all ready-mix trucks to collaborate with the general contractor and concrete contractor on timing deliveries for a new building on Trimble’s Colorado campus. Scheduled for completion in late 2018, the 118,000-square-foot, four-story building will accommodate 650 employees. All information about the concrete and its delivery is transparent to the producer and the contractor.

Timely and Accurate Information

Brannan tracks mixer trucks owned by delivery subcontractors using an in-cab app called TrimFleet Mobile VIA. Status updates are manual, but Brennan dispatchers can communicate with drivers and vice versa. Brannan gathers performance data regardless of who owns the truck.

Timely and Accurate Information

The in-cab software automatically collects information like drum speed and accumulated rotations, distance to the delivery site, and a turn-by-turn route. “All this information together is critical for our daily operation because it gives us a synopsis of what’s happening,” says Brannan Dispatch Manager Jacob Lampert.

Timely and Accurate Information

In the office, dispatchers can tell what’s going on with the batch and quickly get in touch with drivers via canned message or custom message.

Timely and Accurate Information

The driver has instant, real-time access to key information on each batch, including an electronic batch ticket.
