The challenges for mining companies

Mining is a very specific industry that largely depends on large equipment for its operations. Although as a mining company you are quite distinctive and deal with issues that other industries do not face, so you can run your day-to-day operations seamlessly through technology. GPS tracking devices will help you meet the challenges facing the mining industry today and, at the same time, save you unwanted expense and hassle.

In the mining industry, there are many challenges at different stages of the business cycle. The logistical aspects include the transport requirement to move heavy equipment and the transport of mined products as mining sites are generally located in remote areas.

Remoteness is a serious problem. At mine sites and in the vast territories surrounding them, conventional radio means may not be available, i.e. none of the cellular networks (2G, 3G or 4G) can be used for communication. . Meanwhile, the Iridium satellite network covers the entire surface of the Earth, providing a unique possibility to transmit data.

Inefficient management can quickly lead to high and unnecessary costs. By tracking loaded vehicles, companies ensure that time is not wasted on the road and minimizes the costly risk of theft. Freight must be monitored all the time – from the mine site to its final destination. Only under these conditions can it be delivered safely.

The key to effective planning and organization of day-to-day operations is to obtain information continuously and without delay, e. g. 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 properly update its delivery chain which involves different types of transport. All this helps to achieve the ultimate goal – to deliver the cargo on time.

Also, it is important to have accurate data on the loaded cargo. Otherwise, there is a risk of accounting errors and – what is even more important – part of the freight can be stolen without even knowing it. In the mining industry, where large quantities of products are constantly circulating, preventing theft is indeed a very relevant issue.

The DanguirTelematics solution for mining companies

DanguirTelematics provides you with the most accurate tracking data. By having this information at your fingertips, you can make up-to-date decisions and save time for freight delivery. As a result, more deliveries can be made in the same time period.

Additionally, when the GSM network is not available, the Danguir Telematics satellite terminal can be used to transfer data to the server via the Iridium satellite network. From the North Pole to the South Pole – it’s the only network system that works in every corner of the globe. Thus, the information will be available without interruption allowing you to always keep control of your fleet.

Accurate data on loaded cargo can be obtained by using load sensors that measure weight. This feature will help both keep accurate accounting records and prevent theft. If someone tries to steal part of the cargo, the operator will get information about the cargo weight difference.

In addition, to protect a cargo, defining vehicle geographies is a must, i.e. manually marking a virtual fence or the perimeter of a physical location. The vehicle can only be used in a certain area. In case of intrusion in a geographical area, an instant notification will be sent.

Another security measure is to allow driver identification, so that only the authorized person can drive a vehicle. As far as driver safety is concerned, in the event of danger, a panic button can be pressed to request immediate help.


The fuel monitoring feature is used to read the vehicle’s fuel level and fuel consumption. Thus, mining companies can use their resources more efficiently and reduce costs.

The GPS-trackers used by Danguir Telematics are particularly suitable for mining equipment and can guarantee a high quality network connection. The trackers-GPS that we will install on your vehicles are designed for complex solutions where one device can perform several tasks. Features such as FMS CAN data (J1939), fuel CAN data (J1708), TSM232 satellite terminal connected via RS232, Dual-SIM, possibilities to identify the pilot with iButton or RFID via 1 wire, and the Bluetooth technology features (beacons, temperature and humidity, magnet, motion sensors) will maximize the efficiency of your fleet.

The advantages of opting for the DanguirTelematics solution for mining companies:

Efficient cargo delivery – made possible by accurate tracking data and instant insight even when GSM network is not available

Fully protect freight – using geozones to ensure freight does not leave the specified territory and always knowing the exact weight thanks to load sensors
