Packing & Loading



 


One of the truck loading bays

95% of Monarch cement is shipped in bulk trucks or rail hopper cars. An operator in a control room located between the scales selects the specified type of cement for the truck or rail car which is then loaded and weighed on automated scales, with the weights printed on the bill of lading. It takes six to eight minutes to load a truck holding 25 to 28 tons, and about thirty minutes to load a rail car holding 100 tons.

 

It takes just seconds to fill a bag which is automatically check-weighed, counted, and put on pallets. The pallets are then forklifted onto flatbed trucks. Over 750,000 bags of Monarch Portland Cement and Monarch Masonry are packaged during a year.


Packaged cement waits on pallets to be loaded on the truck
