Efficiency in material flow management and safety on site 

By outsourcing material flow management and construction site logistics, we create an opportunity for construction companies to move from the world of fixed facility and personnel costs to flexible service contracts, where costs are mainly determined on an accrual basis. 

With our services, we respond to the daily challenges faced by construction companies. Warehousing excess material at relatively cramped construction sites with plenty of traffic hinders the efficient implementation of ongoing work phases, such as installation work. Construction site professionals often work in confined spaces, which can undermine occupational safety and quality. It is, therefore, advisable to store excess materials in a separate warehouse, from which the material is delivered to the right place at the construction site in a timely manner.

Operations are streamlined through the elimination of delivery delays, waiting times and the need to move material around at the site. When we handle the planning and coordination of logistics and the transport of goods all the way to the site, the working time of site management and professional builders can be spent on the actual construction work. In addition, the materials are not exposed to varying weather conditions, the amount of waste is reduced and space is freed up, particularly at the construction site, which allows for a safer way of working. 

“We’ve been building a productivity leap in the industrial sector with our in-house logistics competence for a couple of decades and have achieved average cost savings of 10–30% for our industrial customers through the optimization of material flows, streamlining of material logistics and continuous improvement of operations. We’re harnessing this competence for the construction industry because we believe that efficient construction site logistics improves productive work in the sector and results in cost savings of 10% on average. Let’s build the future productivity leap in the construction industry together!"
