Scale Automation Creates Efficiency

Scale Automation Creates Efficiency

As you prepare for your next harvest season, are you thinking about how scale automation creates efficiency at your facility? During harvest, it is a demanding time for everyone, long hours, stress levels are high, meals are consumed at your desk and in some cases, your personal life takes a backseat. All in all, harvest time means “it’s all hands on deck”.


Your elevator stares down hundreds of truckloads of grain every day without blinking. You have to know the quality and grade factors, who is hauling the grain, which farm it is coming from and where to bin the grain, all within a matter of minutes.  Any slowdown will delay trucks, who are unloading. Bottom line, if delivery takes too long, customers will look for a faster option.

Scale Automation Creates Efficiency and Increases Profit

Generally speaking, you spend most of your day addressing issues that stand in the way of having efficiency at your facility. Normally, those issues can run a gamut: labor shortage, limited parking space, confused haulers or faulty communication. With that being said, all can create situations that can slow down your elevator operation.


In truth, record harvest yields a short harvest window. In most cases, long truck lines delivering to your elevator present both an exceptional opportunity and tremendous challenge. Meaning, the more grain your facility is able to unload and store, the more profitable it becomes. As a result, your elevator must operate day in and day out as efficiently as possible. And we all know that is easier said, than done.
