FEATURE ARTICLE – Surface Mining Trucks

From autonomy to zero emissions, this month’s Spotlight Feature Article summarises some of the big developments in the surface mining truck market, as open pit haulage enters the most significant transition phase in its history. It includes the fact that Caterpillar Command for hauling-equipped trucks around the world have now autonomously and safely hauled more than 4 billion tonnes (4.4 billion tons) of material since 2013; with 1.2 billion tonnes of that in 2021 alone. Cat is also at the forefront of zero emissions mining truck development, having signed landmark deals with four of the world’s leading mining groups.
