Lehigh Hanson is now working with a tech company on a pilot program to help modernize its aggregate delivery capacity, booking and truck scheduling.

The program with Trelar Logistics will include Lehigh Hanson’s trucking partners.

According to Trelar, it offers a vocational trucking marketplace that connects dump truck owners directly with producers and contractors via an app. In addition to efficient booking, Trelar provides users tracking, real-time data and automated payments.

“The decision to pilot Trelar’s technology is a key milestone in our digital transformation,” says Phillip Holland, vice president of sales and marketing at Lehigh Hanson. “We are enthused and very optimistic about Trelar’s scalable, cloud-based solution, as well as their vision of how digitalization is and can be applied in the construction materials industry.”

Using Trelar’s platform, Lehigh Hanson’s carriers can schedule their deliveries and availability, as well as improve their cash flow, according to Holland.

“All of this is designed to help drivers better manage their business,” he says.

Lehigh Hanson expects the Trelar platform to streamline day-to-day bookings and scheduling processes. This should reduce Lehigh Hanson’s costs and increase proximity to its customers and partners.

The pilot program begins this month with initial installations across Seattle, Phoenix and central California.
