Ready Mix Solution

In the ready mix concrete industry, customers depend on getting the materials they need exactly when they need it. Since on-time delivery is critical, efficient fleet management is essential. To effectively manage supply and demand, dispatchers need to know not only the precise location of each vehicle, but also which stage of the delivery cycle each vehicle is in at all times

Trimble TrimFleet Suite for Ready Mix trucks is a fleet management solution designed to help manage the product delivery cycle by automatically updating dispatchers on location and status information for each vehicle in real-time. Relying on manual updates can often result in less than accurate information, but with TrimFleet's automatic updates you receive the information you need to make intelligent business decisions that can decrease operational costs and increase fleet efficiency.

Applications within the TrimFleet Ready Mix Suite include:

  • TrimView
    Messaging, reporting and mapping that improves the business process
  • TrimViewDB

  • TrimExchange
    Information integration with 3rd party ERP systems that enables business process automation
