I wonder what could be done to improve things by working out more distributed methods?

The mining truck companies are working on robotic trucks so there is no need for an operator, that seems like it may be workable for your chipper. Go out, chip some stuff, return when full. The robotic trucks will probably drive the next level of efficiency improvements for strip mining, oil sands, etc.
