Summary

Logistics is not just about deliveries and transportation; it is also about site and construction logistics. Savings in time, money and other resources can be achieved across a construction project with effective, and early, planning. It can provide an interconnection between stakeholders, deliver better performance and add value for both the client and the contractor.
