Mining Control Solution

Mining is a highly specialised industry that relies heavily on large equipment for its operations. Despite being quite unique and dealing with issues that other industries do not, mining companies can manage their daily activities seamlessly thanks to technology. GPS tracking devices will help to meet the challenges faced by the mining industry today while avoiding unnecessary costs and complications.


The mining industry faces many challenges at different stages of the business cycle. Logistical challenges include the need for transport to move heavy equipment and to transport mined products, as mining sites are usually located in remote areas.

Remoteness is a serious concern. At mining sites and in the vast areas surrounding them, traditional radio means may not be available, i.e. none of the cellular networks (2G, 3G or 4G LTE) can be used for communication. The Iridium satellite network, on the other hand, covers the entire surface of the earth and provides a unique means of transmitting data.

Ineffective management can quickly lead to high and unnecessary costs. By tracking loaded vehicles, companies can ensure that time is not wasted on the road and minimise the costly risk of theft. Cargo must be monitored at all times - from the mine site to its final destination. Only then can it be delivered safely.

The key to effective planning and organisation of day-to-day operations is to receive information continuously and without delay, such as the location of vehicles, even when the GSM signal is unavailable or lost. In this way, a company will never lose track of its fleet and will be able to properly update its supply chain, which includes various types of transport. All of this makes it possible to achieve the ultimate goal of delivering freight on time.


The Worldtrack Africa fleet management solution provides you with the most accurate tracking data available. With this information at your fingertips, you can make up-to-the-minute decisions and save time on cargo delivery. As a result, you can make more runs in the same amount of time.

To protect cargo, it is also essential to set vehicle geo zones, i.e. to manually mark a virtual fence or the perimeter of a physical location. The vehicle can only be operated within a specific zone. If it is violated, an immediate notification is sent.

Another safety measure is to enable driver identification so that only the authorised person can drive a vehicle. To protect the driver, a panic button can be pressed in case of danger to call for immediate help. The fuel monitoring functionality is used to read the vehicle’s fuel level and consumption. This enables mining companies to use their resources more efficiently and save costs.
