Details Logistics Tech Short: Better Grip - Optimized Aggregates Sourcing


Algorithms have become a major efficiency driver for outbound transport optimization in the ready-mix concrete industry. But many RMC producers still lose traction when it comes to manage and optimize their inbound aggregates supplies.

Companies either operate their own quarries, rely on third-party quarries, or have a mix of both in place. The same applies to the actual deliveries. Many operate a mixed fleet of their own tipper trucks and hired hauliers or have subcontracted all deliveries to third parties.

Finding the optimal sourcing/transportation cost balance to replenish RMC plants and/or depots without compromising service levels can be challenging.
