CBH delivers new app in time for harvest
Growers now have the ability to keep track of their grain throughout the delivery process, with CBH recently launching mobile app Carter’s Delivery Form.
From this harvest onwards, growers who deliver to a CBH site will be able to pre-submit load details and monitor the status of their deliveries via a mobile device.
CBH general manager operations David Capper said the app had been brought to market after a successful trial period last harvest.
“The app replaces the traditional paper form and provides real-time data in the grower’s hands,” he said.
“It’s suitable for anyone who delivers grain to a CBH site or is wishing to track their deliveries or site performance remotely.”
Via the app, growers can receive notifications of load deliveries, including site arrival and departure times.
“They will know where their truck is and when it’s likely to get back to the farm for the next load,” Mr Capper said. “It also has load quality results, so growers can make real-time decisions from the farm.”
Mr Capper said the app would help CBH to accurately measure the performance of sites during harvest, including truck wait times before the sample shed.
“We can use this data to get a more in-depth understanding of how to better manage and speed-up cycle times during harvest, as well as prioritise future investment in the network,” he said.
“We appreciate long wait times at site can cost growers and grain transporters time and money and this app will provide us with better information to manage this.”
The app is available for Apple and Android devices, accessed by the App Store or Google Play. A Getting Started guide is available at cbh.om.au/cdfapp.
The app allows growers to track deliveries to a CBH site.
