While the carbon footprint of cement has a major impact on the sustainability of concrete, there is something that the public at large is much more aware of. The hulking concrete mixer, as it belches diesel fumes while it lumbers down the road, is a significant reminder that concrete production and delivery is greatly dependent on fossil fuels and their contribution to depleting the ozone layer. The concrete industry relies on trucks to not only deliver concrete to its customers, but also to move its raw materials from quarries and mills to its production facilities. Using an advanced new form of the same software that GPSs use to calculate the best route to a destination, concrete producers can now minimize fuel consumption, drive time, driver hours and truck utilization to deliver concrete to their customers with a significant savings over traditional methods.
