Apex TM Pan Pacific Cement Pan Pacific Cement is a leading cement distributor in California. The company was founded in 2007 and distributes cement throughout California and Nevada. Their state of the art cement terminal is in Sacramento, California and has a capacity of 80,000 tons with 3 load out bays. The company imports cement from around the world to meet the challeng- ing needs of their customers. The Challenge Pan Pacific Cement, a subsidiary of the Caillier Investment Group, was looking for a system that could expedite the ticketing process for a high volume of truck traffic at a facility with an estimated capacity of 1.2 million tons per year, interface to a 3rd party PLC loadout system, interface to an existing COMMANDseries system for Billing and Enterprise Content Management, and deliver and implement on time. The system had to be ready to go when the first ship arrived. The Solution It became obvious that the Apex system was an ideal fit. As the leading supplier of ticketing and automation solutions for the bulk materials industry, Command Alkon could leverage their experience with the largest cement suppliers in North America to help design a solution that would meet all of the requirements for Pan Pacific Cement. The final result would be a cement loadout facility with a typical load time of 3 minutes, far exceeding the industry average. The Result The first step was a site survey while the terminal was still under construction to understand the physical layout and to This terminal will be an important link to meeting the needs of concrete producers in the Northern California market.
