Unveiling Tread Horizon: The Ultimate Construction Materials Intelligence Platform
Pioneering a Comprehensive Platform for the Construction Materials Industry
Tread's Vision of Materials IntelligenceTM
At Tread, our mission has been to deliver simple, powerful solutions to construction materials logistics enterprises. As we meet more and more customers in our industry - we realize how incredible and urgent the opportunity is to help meet the rapidly-changing environment in Construction Materials.
The need for comprehensive software - one that seamlessly-connects customers, fleets, brokers, owner operators, and producers and, that provides visibility across ETAs, order progress, and hauler status, and that takes the invoicing process from a week-long ordeal to just a few minutes, has never been more clear.
Each stakeholder has a critical role to play.
The Construction Materials Industry is Changing Rapidly
Changing industry dynamics have made Aggregates logistics just as timely and urgent as Ready Mix. Software in Aggregates and Materials Hauling can no longer be a second thought, a nice to have, or a project for next season. Customers are accustomed to live data from services like Uber and real-time order tracking from Amazon deliveries, and are demanding the same visibility, automated ETAs, and on-time invoicing with audit controls as other consumer industries.
With infrastructure spending about to skyrocket, the need for software and upgrading the efficiency of operations for all stakeholders is no longer a nice to have, it’s mission critical.
Our objective at Tread is to deliver meaningful ROI to all of our customers. But over the years we learned that while we were very efficient at solving one piece of the puzzle, true ROI could only be delivered with a solution that served the entire value chain. Our customers were the first to point out this need – as we worked closely to design solutions to their most pressing challenges, the scope kept expanding and expanding. In this industry, these problems and opportunities just do not exist in isolation. We knew we needed to solve the full end-to-end workstream.
While Tread started in dispatch, we soon uncovered that critical logistics work streams required scheduling and routing, scale tickets & eTickets, maintenance records, equipment compliance and insurance reporting, foreman sign off, invoice creation, driver settlements, carbon accounting and reporting, messaging, and robust reporting to all be managed by one solution.
As we tried to stretch our platform to meet these expanding needs reality set in. We now know that this industry doesn’t need extensions, or more features stuffed into existing workflows. We need an overhaul.
You deserve a true end-to-end platform for Construction Materials Intelligence.
Tread Horizon: The Future of Materials Intelligence

We’ve taken nearly a decade of experience and the voice of customers of all sizes across Materials Production, Buying, and Hauling to deliver an intelligent, powerful platform for the massively complex and time-consuming workflows and processes involved in construction materials.
We’ve reimagined our software offering with five principles in mind:
We’ve re-designed all of our primary flows to ensure our software can deliver true ROI for your business, and there’s a metric and report for each primary business objective. Tread will immediately transform your operation by helping you:
