This recognition further validates our important role in supporting the construction industry with powerful yet simple technology to optimize every aspect of the construction materials supply chain.
CEMEX Ventures, a leading corporate venture capital entity, has long been at the forefront of innovation within the construction industry. Launched in 2017, the venture arm of Cemex, Cemex Ventures focused on helping overcome the main challenges and capitalizing on the opportunity areas in the construction ecosystem through solutions that tackle challenges in the construction environment and shape the industry’s future.
Selected for our innovation in construction materials "Agility" (construction materials supply chain), Tread is bringing efficiency and optimization to the end-to-end construction process, from order to dispatch to driver pay. With a purpose-built app for web and mobile, Tread enables construction materials logistics teams to quote and place orders, schedule and dispatch drivers, and reconcile tickets and pay drivers – all in one place – from anywhere at any time.
Bringing construction materials innovation to all of our customers is a passion for us. We're proud that our valued customer CEMEX is aligned in this mission. While the venture arm award was separate from CEMEX and its relationship to us as a customer, we are always excited to be recognized by the innovative company that shares the same passion for innovation with us.

Our live truck tracking enables all stakeholders to see where their order is at all times and also ensures drivers are paid for time worked and materials delivered.
