Swedish company Scania is showcasing its new solution to help mine operators create efficiencies by identifying savings in their work processes.
The Scania Site Optimisation will enable the company to bring its experience of efficient production in truck manufacturing to the mining sector.
Scania Mining head Björn Winblad said: “Scania Site Optimisation is a framework of tools and methods, which identifies inefficiencies in logistical flows.
“We are able to find and target bottlenecks in those flows using information relayed to us from communication units in each vehicle. That helps us map the flow in the mine such as where the trucks load and unload, and provide us with data that we can analyse.”
Scania Site Optimisation measures and evaluates production performance factors in the five crucial areas of time, road, load, safety, and sustainability.

Winblad further added: “We are leading the way with this holistic approach. And we can also use our expertise and smart solutions from other industries, such as long haulage transport or bus transport, and apply them in mining.”
The company is unveiling the Scania Site Optimisation during mining and equipment exhibition MINExpo taking place from 26-28 September.
Scania said it has been trialling this new concept for the past couple of years at various sites around the world.
