The Soil Connect Marketplace platform helps contractors find soil and aggregates closer to where they are needed, saving fuel and time, while minimizing their carbon footprint.

As fuel prices soar, entrepreneurs are finding help controlling costs online, with the Ground connection Marlet.

This platform helps contractors find soil and aggregates closer to where they’re needed, saving fuel and time, while minimizing their carbon footprint, according to Soil Connect.

Land and aggregates marketplace Soil Connect uses matching algorithms to create close connections between people who have material and those who need it. With average fuel prices currently above $4 a gallon and rising, every mile eliminated equals money saved. According to Soil Connect, early knowledge of the supply and demand dynamics of soils and aggregates has allowed users to realize substantial savings in fuel and material costs, often reported in the thousands of dollars. The site is free and can be viewed at www.SoilConnect.com and is available as an app on Google Play or Apple.

“Soil Connect was designed to serve the construction ecosystem and the savings in fuel costs by finding closer materials is a clear example of how users benefit from the technology,” said Cliff Fetner, Founder of Soil Connect. “In addition to driving fewer miles, users shorten cycle times and boost productivity. All of these improve project efficiency and boost results.”

In addition to Soil Connect Marketplace, the company offers eTickets, an electronic ticketing platform to improve efficiency and reduce the administrative burden of processing paper tickets. With e-tickets, customers can easily track loads, take photos of materials and obtain contactless signatures. An eRegulatory tool, which offers customers the first ever online method to digitally capture and track all required documents (such as state manifests), is also available. In addition to the compliance form, the eRegulatory product includes detailed shipment tracking with both a map view and a printout.
