Command Alkon is closing out an eventful 2020—new ownership plus Trimble Construction Logistics and Libra Systems acquisitions—with a deal for Ruckit Inc., an Austin, Texas-based transportation logistics platform developer. The transaction combines what officials note are comprehensive construction materials toolset and Connex platform for heavy work with digital ticketing, invoice reconciliation, and third-party hauler management solutions for aggregate, asphalt, paving and trucking companies. The Ruckit platform removes paper delivery ticket and haul sheet handling; optimizes truck utilization; simplifies mixed fleet management; speeds up invoice reconciliation; and, enables back-office or field personnel to focus on more productive tasks.
“Our partnership with Command Alkon and integration with Connex has fostered new opportunities for construction companies to operate with real-time visibility and boost productivity and profitability to new levels,” says Ruckit CEO Tarun Nimmagadda.
“Combining Ruckit’s innovative platform and rapidly-growing community of users with [our] history of innovation will provide a transformative heavy work transportation solution that creates new opportunities for collaboration throughout the construction logistics ecosystem,” adds Command Alkon CEO Phil Ramsey.
