Using data to drive intelligent
concrete deliveries

Connect Assure at a glance:

  • Continuous data collection ensures quality and consistency
  • Concrete is ready to go as soon as it arrives on site
  • Track orders in real time during transit

Tarmac is revolutionising the delivery of its ready-mixed concrete by harnessing the power of data to improve quality and efficiency.

The Connect Assure system uses intelligent mobile monitoring devices to track the concrete’s consistency at the plant and within the delivery vehicle. It not only measures and records quality, but actively manages it by adding water as required to ensure the mix’s consistency. This eliminates any risk of jobs going wrong due to concrete weakened by inaccurate water addition on site.

Assure means that our concrete arrives as specified, ready to use, reducing the amount of manual slump testing required on site. Less manual testing means less time wasted, benefitting productivity and supporting operative safety. The system provides peace of mind about the concrete’s quality through a comprehensive data read-out.

Tarmac is the first in the UK to use this state-of-the-art technology. By capturing detailed data on each load’s quality and progress throughout a journey, it is helping us to continually optimise our operations and mix designs.

We know that visibility is important. Our customers can track their orders in real time via a dedicated mobile app showing the GPS location of our delivery vehicles. Important information including a delivery’s mix, slump and quality is available at the touch of a button to empower customers, immediately or years after delivery took place.

What our customers say:

"Connect Assure has made a significant contribution to our operations and has allowed us to boost productivity on site by as much as 70 per cent.

The technology allows much greater control over the consistency of materials than was previously achievable through batch control alone.

By constantly measuring and adjusting water content, we can be confident that the quality of the concrete we pour is the same every time, regardless of journey time.”
