Improve and optimize your load out process by digitalizing the entire flow - from load order to load ticket. This solution connects the loader, the truck and the site office through real-time digital communication, which will help boost your productivity and reduce costs for administration, misloads and fuel consumption.
Utilize the data from the load out process to optimize material flow, machine utilization and thereby increase production. All data is available, at your fingertips via a dashboard in the Office Portal, which can be customized to suit your needs. This solution will minimize the time spent on administration dealing with orders and tickets on paper and optimize the flow in terms of prioritizing the incoming trucks and use of the loaders.
By increasing the efficiency of the load out process, you increase the profitability – even small changes in a highly repetitive process will lead to big savings over time.
Through the Connected Load Out Office Portal you benefit from real-time production information, which supports better planning and data-driven decision making. Thanks to the information available, the site management has total transparency on the performance of the operation. All stakeholders have access to the data, which contributes to strengthening collaboration throughout the work process.

The fully digitalized interaction between site management, machine operators and truck drivers allow orders and load tickets to be sent automatically and securely from the cab without the need for handing over papers or using radio communication. This leads to an improved work environment, less communication errors and increased workplace safety.
