The distribution of concrete is one of the most complex logistics management tasks. Ready-mix concrete has a very short shelf life of approx. 90 minutes and small and large order quantities must be delivered quickly, accurately and as cost-effectively as possible to geographically widely distributed and frequently-changing unloading points. Through the use of geo information, the various operational processes of the building material logistics can be optimized.
