Since its release in 2018, LOGR eDockets seen meteoric uptake in the forestry industry. Now Enabled the innovation firm behind this platform, is again creating industry buzz with the release of LOGR Air.
LOGR Air is a Multi-Party System that allows the whole supply chain to exchange data in real-time through a sophisticated set of APIs. Starting in the forest, through the haulage journey, continuing through the weighing process at the Mill or Scaling Port.
The creation of LOGR Air came by way of the Green Triangle Regional Working Committee wanting to: streamline processes for truck drivers, enhance safety, improve accuracy of data capture and finally provide all parties almost instant access to this shared data.
‘The complexity of our region means truck drivers have to deal with the multiple different systems of each forest owner, and the multiple systems at each weighbridge / delivery location.’ explains Tammy Auld - Customer & regional Manager at Timberlands Pacific, ‘We viewed that by working together and connecting these systems there would be much to gain.’
Grant Hull - Chief Executive at Enabled notes: ‘Working with the Committee we saw vast upside potential of unlocking their digital ecosystem by making shared data a reality for the whole supply chain, whilst remaining interoperably with their separate “owned” data systems’ which include many different weighbridges systems.
The weighbridge, a common point of shared pain and also one of the most dangerous processes requiring drivers to exit their trucks to manually process weighing. The Regional Working Committee’s case study was first installed at the Portland Scalingyard. At this location LOGR Air also achieves a wireless weighing process supporting Haulers for One Forty One, Green Triangle Forest Products, and Timberlands Pacific.
To process automatic and wireless weighing, LOGR Air interfaces with any existing weighbridge to capture the stable weight, then it identifies the weighing truck by number plate recognition cameras and matches the weight, the Driver and their corresponding delivery docket. This is presented as a digital recipe to the Driver who can confidently confirm successful weighing. This receipt is also cryptographically signed for authenticity and made available for each stakeholders’ records via the API.
The Air service is compatible with a number of electronic docket systems including Trimble WSX and LOGR eDockets.
“By supporting the two leading electronic docketing solutions used at Portland in WSX and eDockets, we’ve created a common weighing process for all Drivers and in doing so open additional opportunities such as providing inbound delivery notifications and integration pathway for onsite scaling” Grant highlights.
Summarising the achievement at Portland, Tammy recognises that “We all exist in a joint data ecosystem, and within that ecosystem the more we can leverage shared data, the greater the total benefit is.”
Beyond the successful trial site, LOGR Air now supports wireless weighbridge integrations at Portland Scalingyard, Portland Chip Terminal, Albany Chip Terminal, Longreach Chip Terminal, Surrey Hills Chipmill and Tumut Pulpmill.
