Moreover, to communicate with them about the minimum requirements standards set by CEMEX for hauler contractors and the benefits of using GPS systems. “The contractors had a very positive feedback and they appreciated the efforts CEMEX is taking to guide them with following the company’s safety guidelines and to help on their continuous improvement of their safety processes,” said by Juan Carlos, Procurement & Logistic Director.
