Logimine has long seen the benefit of real-time data to help improve management and operational efficiencies. The company’s TFT on-board technology for trucks and other quarry vehicles is now providing quarry supervisors with more key performance indicators to better manage their day-to-day running of the quarry and increase productivity.

Key enablers for this are fleet management software and human/machine interfaces. These technologies are now becoming accessible for smaller quarries too.
