Underloading trucks can be extremely detrimental to the bottom line on any project if it slips by unnoticed. Sprint Sand and Clay, Houston’s leading supplier of fill material, has improved its daily efficiency by up to 8% on large mass hauling jobs thanks to Loadscan’s load volume scanner (LVS).
The load volume scanning system utilises laser scanning and RFID technologies combined with software that creates 3D model images of trucks to measure the exact volume of the material loaded in a truck or trailer bin.
With over 20 active mining locations and a network of over 200 dump trucks and trailers that provide quality sand, topsoil, fill dirt, select fill, mulch and other construction and landscape materials, Sprint Sand and Clay has the resources needed to supply projects of all sizes throughout all five counties surrounding Houston.
Matt Strickland, vice president of Sprint Sand and Clay, explains how volume measurement plays a huge role in their operations as it gives them the information they need in real-time to ensure their operators adjust loading capacities to avoid underloading.
