Athabasca Minerals (AMI) says its subsidiary Aggregates Markets has deployed its Rockchain digital platform with optimised supply-transport solutions for more than $45 million in construction material bids.
Tenders have focused particularly on the delivery of aggregates for pipeline, infrastructure, road construction, municipality improvements and civil projects across three Western Canadian provinces.
Created by Aggregates Marketing, Rockchain includes a network of more than 700 suppliers, transportation and equipment companies across Western Canada. It incorporates an algorithm module that determines the best supply-transport combination to help improve utilisation for aggregate producers and trucking companies, the company adds.
According to AMI, the solution is further bolstered by an integrated quality assurance programme that validates product delivery solutions, which are cross-checked to ensure project specifications are achieved.
AMI CEO Robert Beekhuizen, says: “We see a valuable role in our Rockchain digital platform to overcome sub-optimal supply/transport combinations with better commercial solutions, which ultimately enhances value for customers.”
