The Forest Products Commission of Western Australia to Deploy Trimble’s CONNECTED FOREST™ Solutions

Trimble Forestry today is pleased to announce that the Forest Products Commission of Western Australia (FPCWA), the entity responsible for managing forest lands owned or leased by the government in Western Australia, will deploy Trimble’s Connected Forest solutions to move to a digital, paperless, delivery note exchange system.  

FPCWA will deploy the Connected Forest Exchange (CFX), a cloud-based platform providing visibility and access to real-time electronic delivery notes throughout the supply chain. The deployment includes mobile applications for field data collection and seamless synchronization to CFX. This will result in greater timber security, faster payment reconciliation, more efficient operations, and the estimated elimination of 36,000 paper delivery notes each year, representing 1.5 million tonnes of forest products annually.

Trimble’s Connected Forest adds Paperless Ticket Option

Trimble Forestry today announced that its Connected Forest solutions have added the option for paperless trip tickets to its mobile electronic ticket application for forest to mill log deliveries. The paperless supply chain is facilitated by the Connected Forest Xchange (CFX) platform that allows all supply chain partners to view their load transactions in real-time.   

Green Belt, Ireland’s largest private forestry company, recently implemented the CFX mobile paperless solution. “We have been able to go from 7000 paper dockets being exchanged at 135 sites annually, to ZERO paper tickets,” said John O’Reilly, CEO of Green Belt.

 “Paperless trip tickets support the broad trend towards electronic records within our industry.  It has the added benefit of limiting the potential spread of Covid-19 by removing the exchange of paper documents between the loader and hauler, and between the hauler and scale site”, said Kevin Toohill, General Manager of Trimble Forestry.

 The CFX platform, including integrated Web and mobile applications, connects and gives real-time visibility to electronic load tickets from harvesters, haulers, and scaling sites.  It improves and speeds up the process for administrators to reconcile delivered loads, manage revenue collection and payments, and provides greater data visibility throughout the supply chain in a completely digital, paperless environment.
