CBH de­liv­ers new app in time for har­vest

Countryman - - MACHINERY AND TECHNOLOGY -

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.
