Smart construction logistics for Civil construction projects is essential. Space is tight or the demand to deliver precisely on time is high. The coordination and monitoring of logistics for these project is crucial.
In residential and utility building construction, the proportion of passenger traffic is greater than that of freight traffic (approx. 70-30%). This is different in civil engineering, road construction and hydraulic engineering, where freight transport accounts for the largest share (approx. 60%). Emissions from freight transport are about four times higher than those from passenger transport. Against this background, it is not surprising that the CO2 emissions in civil engineering, road construction and hydraulic engineering are much higher than for residential construction.
Transport routes, civil engineering, road/hydraulic engineering and residential/utility building construction
In contrast to residential and utility building construction, the transport routes in freight transport in civil engineering, road construction and hydraulic engineering are often short. For example, sand, repack and other bulk materials are extracted nearby and the transport distance is about 25 kilometers. As the value of the building materials increases, the transport distances also seem to increase to around 200 kilometres. This already applies to prefabricated elements such as sewer pipes and curbs. These materials are bought mainly on market price. The relatively long transport route and high transport costs are less of a problem for these more expensive materials.
Smart construction logistics in civil, road and hydraulic engineering sectors
Smart construction logistics in civil engineering, road construction and hydraulic engineering can be a effective solution. For example, for the successful tenders for the most economically advantageous offer, where a practical approach to reducing CO2 emissions is required. Or to keep track of the many freight transports TiQiT can help.
TiQiT gives you an overview of when the materials will arrive. On the transport day you will see, among other things:
- The planned time of arrival.
- The estimated time of arrival.
- The actual time of arrival.
The expected arrival time is particularly important for you, your staff and equipment. With TiQiT you have an overview and are automatically informed throughout the day.
Overview of construction logistics and freight transport
TiQiT also keeps your drivers. Under the influence of the works, the correct gate or approach route is constantly changing. With TiQiT you set the correct logistics instructions in the morning and TiQiT ensures that everyone involved is informed, including of course the driver.
With TiQiT you have an overview of all your freight deliveries. These can be the direct trips in the construction ticket module, where you can optionally monitor the CO2 emissions. And, you can keep track of your stock and materials with the equipment module, in the case of a small construction site with a hub / warehouse / transshipment point elsewhere.
