Gore Earthmoving is an Australian family owned and operated earthmoving business with more than 30 years’ experience in delivery and support services to
the agricultural, civil and mining construction sectors in Queensland and New South Wales.
Based in Goondiwindi, Gore Earthmoving’s modern and extensive fleet of late model equipment includes scrapers, dozers, excavator, graders, water trucks, rollers, and compactors, as well as a comprehensive heavy haulage fleet.
With more than 30 staff across the operation, including experienced project managers, skilled certified operators, experienced maintenance staff and supervisors, Gore Earthmoving’s client base spans local and state government authorities, small and large private enterprises in the agricultural sector and companies in the resource sector supply chain.
The company undertakes work across a variety of projects including irrigation development and maintenance, road construction, pipe laying, water supply and delivery, vegetation control, large earthworks, feedlot developments and stock dams.
Given the diverse work and vast areas of projects, Director Mick Gore says his company was looking for a tracking system that would enable increased driver and machine productivity, as well as something that would help better manage servicing scheduling and maintenance planning. “We previously used the old rocker clocks to measure work versus idle time but as our vehicles are often working in remote locations it could take five or six days to get information back to head office.
“With such a comprehensive fleet of vehicles we wanted to ensure that our assets were being fully utilised and required more detailed and accurate reporting of vehicle movements,” says Gore.
“Our servicing team was also spending a lot of unproductive time travelling to and from remote worksites to service vehicles, and managing workflows had become an issue. We were relying on machine operators and fleet drivers to relay information about servicing and maintenance requirements and we needed a reliable and effective system to manage those processes.”
