Fertiliser Spreading Charges


9 July 2018

Dear Valued Customer

Amuri Transport, in consultation with our customers, are using the TracMap precision farming GPS guidance and job management system to support our fertiliser application operation. TracMap is a proven system that provides accurate spreading, monitoring and proof of placement of fertiliser.

Forthcoming upgrades to TracMap’s software system mean’s Amuri Transport will need to start upgrading hardware in our vehicles or risk losing the system support currently provided by the TracMac business.

TracMap charges Amuri Transport a cost per hectare for the use of their software, and until now, this cost has been absorbed by our business.

As a result of the forthcoming upgrades, we can no longer absorb these costs. While the cost is not significant on a farm by farm basis, across the total of the farms Amuri Transport spreads on, it has become a cost that needs to be reluctantly recovered from you.

Therefore, from the 1st of August 2018 a cost of $0.30c per hectare spread, will now need to be on charged to offset the TracMap costs we don’t currently recover. This will be shown as a separate charge on your invoice.

We are also introducing a cost to map farms or to make changes to existing property maps on your farms, if you require any of this work to be undertaken, a charge of $65.00 per hour will apply.

I trust you understand and appreciate our position for introducing these charges. We appreciate your continued support, please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need any clarification on these changes to our rating structure.

Yours sincerely

Peter Fiddes

Managing Director
