CEMEX has announced the launch of its CEMEX Go Quarry Link: a programme designed to improve product pick up and maximise efficiency for aggregates customers.
Supported by the company’s global aggregates network, the programme is the latest advancement for CEMEX’s aggregates business. It started with a pilot programme, which remains underway at the company’s FEC Quarry in Miami, Florida. It leverages technology, enabling customers to receive orders with greater efficiency, providing real-time onsite customer truck monitoring, as well as better product visibility and loadout processes. Additional CEMEX quarries across the US are currently implementing the programme.
“At CEMEX, we are focused on our customers and we want them to get what they need, when they need it, quickly and accurately,” said Jaime Muguiro, CEMEX USA President. “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.”
Under the programme at FEC Quarry, customers order aggregates before arrival. When entering the plant, RFID sensors scan tags on customer trucks, and CEMEX begins to process digitally 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 weighed on exit scales designed to ensure load accuracy, and an automated dispatch system expedites the end ticketing process.
“With CEMEX Go Quarry Link, we are aiming to improve the experience for our customers by focusing on the issues that matter to them,” said Graham Hardwick, CEMEX USA Vice President of Aggregates – Florida Region. “FEC Quarry is one of the largest quarries in the US, and CEMEX Go Quarry Link is helping to set a new standard for efficiency for our customers.”
“Florida is growing and CEMEX is fuelling that growth with high-quality aggregates that support infrastructure, commercial, and residential buildings,” said Travis Wellman, CEMEX USA Vice President/General Manager of Aggregates – Florida Region. “FEC Quarry is one of the largest quarries in the US and CEMEX Go Quarry Link is helping set a new standard for efficiency for our customers.”
The company is also piloting the digital CEMEX Go Pick Up app, so customers can know wait times and have greater visibility of available products.
