Our Innovative Truck Loading Process
Pontotoc’s rapid truck loading process is driving the market.
Pontotoc Sand and Stone understands the importance of load time in the sand mining industry. That’s why we’ve taken strides to improve lead time by limiting the truck loading time at our facilities. While some mines use a leading system that takes hours, Pontotoc’s truck loading process takes less than seven minutes and keeps your driver safe.
Idle time is your worst enemy when loading and unloading products. Trucking carriers work diligently to prebook the next load and plan days in advance. Working ahead allows them to offer longer lead time to their drivers. Longer lead times are beneficial because they allow for:
Most carriers are interested in pre-planned loads that provide a specific schedule. That’s why booking earlier leads to lower costs. Jobs booked last minute cost more, impacting profits.
Extended lead time increases the pool of carriers and equipment available to you. A better carrier selection means better service quality and a more pleasant delivery experience.
You have more control of your shipment if you book early. Allowing your driver an extended lead time accounts for delays and unforeseen disruptions.

Some sand mines use an inefficient loading process that takes several hours and slows down your supply chain. This can increase the overall cost of the product, even if the upfront cost is cheaper. We’ve engineered an automated loading system that completes the process in as little as seven minutes.
Each truck is assigned an automated bill of lading to its license plate number. Upon arrival at our facility, we scan your driver’s license plate to view the cargo manifest. Your driver enters the pickup line and waits for the sand loading process to begin. Once the sand is loaded into their truck, the driver has the load weighed at our check station and then drives back to your facility. Our automated process makes ordering, dispatching, hauling, tracking, and acquiring data easier. Our system is also safe, since it keeps your driver in their truck the entire time.
Pontotoc not only provides a quick turnaround delivery system, but our sand arrives at your facility ready for immediate use. Many sand suppliers deliver products that are straight from the mine and filled with contaminants. Pontotoc uses a detailed quality control process that washes, grades, and removes any debris from the sand. This process ensures that our sand is fully within industry standards when it arrives at your facility.
