Earthwave Technologies products and our mission align directly with what the e-Ticketing Task Force is looking to achieve.

Washington, DC – Today, The National Construction Materials e-Ticketing Task Force (e-Ticketing Task Force) announced Earthwave Technologies is officially joining in its drive to digitize the construction materials supply chain. The e-Ticketing Task Force serves to promote the use of e-Ticketing and find innovative ways to enhance productivity, reduce environmental impacts and become safer. The e-Ticketing Task Force provides a first in the nation model for how the public and private sector can work together to facilitate the digital transformation of the construction industry.

“Adding Earthwave Technologies to the Task Force is proof positive that a true national movement is underway.” stated Greg Nadeau, e-Ticketing Task Force Senior Advisor and former Federal Highway Administrator under President Obama. “We could not be more thrilled to bring their expertise to the Task Force.”

“We immediately recognized the Task Force as a welcomed addition to the national e-Ticketing movement, as we strive to fully digitize the construction materials industry. We are very excited to join in this effort,” stated Larry Baker, Earthwave President & CEO. “Earthwave Technologies products and our mission align directly with what the e-Ticketing Task Force is looking to achieve. e-Ticketing is all about safety first and improving efficiency for inspectors, contractors and the people on site and on the job.”

“At the core of the e-Ticketing Task Force is ascertaining innovation through industry collaboration, said Joe Spinelli, Co-Chair of the National e-Ticketing Task Force. “Earthwave Technologies is respected and well known throughout the industry for their innovative approach to e-Ticketing with their focus on enhanced productivity, work-zone safety, and efficient solutions. We look forward to their participation and insight as we move toward the digitization of the construction materials industry.”

Led by public and private construction materials industry experts, The National e-Ticketing Construction Materials Task Force launched October 21, 2021 with the debut of an informational and robust website and a seven-minute video. The video highlights the benefits of digital ticketing and stars task force members and both public and private sector DOT and contractor workers. The website provides information for both state departments of transportation (DOTs) and materials contractors as well as industry best practices, and information about future national conversations, industry conventions, and events.

In 2020 Federal Highway introduced “e-Ticketing” as part of its Every Day Counts-6 (EDC-6) 2020 program. Every Day Counts is a means for Federal Highway to introduce, bi-annually, innovative programs and policies to be led at the local and state level for the purpose of integrating automation, shortening delivery process, and improving roadway safety. “e-Ticketing is a paperless process for creating, sharing, tracking, documenting, and archiving materials information, accessible in real time via mobile devices, provides all stakeholders with an electronic means to verify materials deliveries while enhancing safety, streamlining inspections, and improving contract administration procedures.”

The National Construction Materials e-Ticketing Task Force (e-Ticketing Task Force) is a partnership between State Departments of Transportation, producers, and contractors who are committed to digitizing the construction materials supply chain. The goal of the e-Ticketing Task Force is the elimination of paper tickets associated with Hot Mix Asphalt, Aggregates, and Ready-mix Concrete for all public infrastructure construction projects nationwide. As the industry seeks innovative ways to enhance productivity, reduce environmental impacts, and become safer, the e-Ticketing Task Force provides a first in the nation model for how the public and private sector can work together to establish best practices, overcome challenges, and facilitate an honest dialogue to embrace a digital transformation of the construction materials industry.
