“I am honored to take on the responsibilities of this position, and thank Joe for his support and for getting us to where we are today. It has been amazing to see how far the Task Force has come in such a short period of time, and I look forward to this new chapter,” said Craig Yeack, President and Co-Founder of BCMI Corporation. “There’s so much momentum behind e-Ticketing. I know that the Task Force can significantly help all 50 states with the march toward the digital enterprise in the construction industry .
As Co-Chairs, Yeack and Ganoe will help drive the value of e-Ticketing to the entire construction materials supply chain, including the ready mix concrete, cement, aggregate and hot mix asphalt industries throughout the next year.
“When the Task Force started it was a few producers and contractors in Massachusetts collaborating with MassDOT to get e-Ticketing off the ground and figure out the nuances of adoption. Then it grew like wildfire and became a true movement for the industry across New England. There’s definite weight in the value of the saying ‘if you build it, they will come,’” stated Joe Spinelli, the Task Force’s newest Advisor. “It is humbling to see where the Task Force is today, a national effort, led by an incredible cross section of construction professionals, state Department of Transportation officials, and technology providers. I have the utmost confidence in Craig’s vision and know he and Dan will be excellent partners together bringing fresh ideas for the future of the Task Force.”
In 2020 the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) introduced “e-Ticketing” as part of its Every Day Counts-6 (EDC-6) 2020 program. Every Day Counts is a means for FHWA 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, and making it accessible in real time via mobile devices. eTicketing provides all stakeholders with an electronic means to verify materials deliveries while enhancing safety, streamlining inspections, and improving contract administration procedures.
