Modernizing aggregate dispatch: Solutions built for subcontracted haulers

In 2005 Noah Dolgoy founded a construction company in Alberta, where he discovered that heavy equipment was being subcontracted and managed through archaic dispatch processes: phone calls, spreadsheets, and paper tickets. Seven years after leaving the company – earning a JD/MBA and supporting corporate due diligence in mining and infrastructure – Noah returned to the problem with a belief that common technology could solve the problems he experienced. Noah created a web and mobile platform that connected contractors, suppliers and haulers – TREAD.

In 2016 the TREAD mobile app and cloud-based platform was built alongside, and for, the construction industry. The team spent 2.5 years working with truck drivers, dispatchers, supply chain managers, vice-presidents of operations and owners to generate a novel data set that would allow contractors and suppliers to modernize the way they do business with their subcontractor hauling partners. Central to this was creating a secure, transparent and user-friendly experience for all.

Questions to be addressed at Quarry Tech Vancouver:
● Will aggregate haulers use this?
● Who in North America is adopting this?
● What applications/companies do this?
○ Building our own solution vs. partnering
● How will this affect my business?

At Rock to Road’s upcoming Quarry Tech forum, Noah will establish what dynamic (mobile/web) dispatch of subcontractors is and why people are seeing out a solution like this. He will provide context of what was possible two to five years ago, and what is possible now. 

This presentation will provide a holistic view of technology use in the aggregate industry. Noah will talk about multiple companies launching mobile-based applications and web platforms to support aggregate supply chains and workflows – focusing on what is motivating this across the aggregate and trucking industries.

This session will include a case study on TREAD’s work with Lafarge GTA Aggregates related to subcontractor hauler safety.
