Loading and haulage

Loading and hauling are primary functions in the mining value chain. Under and overloading, under and over digging, excessive wait times, and slow cycle times can all impact the haulage cycle and negatively affect your production and profits.

 

To help mitigate these issues, we’ve partnered with our customers to engineer integrated mining solutions that promote more efficient truck/shovel matching, haul routes, shovel and truck payload metrics, and mine plan compliance. Real-time information is provided to equipment operators, helping customers achieve enhanced overall performance and reduced cost per tonne.
