The shift to data-driven transport planning in building materials logistics

Get Started

In the daily race for competitiveness, the building materials industry can learn a lot from the data driven decision making in today’s motorsport.

It’s not just about how fast your car or how good your team is.

The right planning strategy and real-time data insights can help you to cross the finish line first.

Intelligent planning tools, that are based on algorithms, real-time information, and automated decision-making, give your supply chain a competetive edge.

And the shift to data-driven transport planning will boost your

  • Strategic planning
  • Tactical scheduling
  • Real-time operations

Did you know? What the building materials industry can learn from today's motorsport.

Pit Stops

Pit Stops

The fastest in-race pit stop ever in F1 history was timed at 1.92 seconds in 2016. Pit stops in today’s motorsport are carried out in less time than it takes to read this sentence. Blink and one misses it.

Allocated time slots add speed and consistency to your in-plant loading processes. Hauliers, supplies, and ex-works customers are notified by email on available time slots and haulage orders.

Pole Positions

Pole Positions

Nearly 50% of all F1 pole positions resulted into race victory over the past decade. A great performance in qualifying gives a driver the best possible chance of winning the race.

Optimized pre-planning puts your trucks in pole for the daily race of competitiveness. Latest planning tools analyze a virtually endless number of scheduling decisions in real-time and identify those that are ideal for minimizing costs and maximizing service quality.

Driver Cockpit

Driver Cockpit

A modern F1 steering wheel has 35 or more knobs, buttons and switches. A driver changes gear as many as 4,000 times in a race. On average, he uses the small shift paddles behind the wheel every 1.8 seconds.

Truck dispatchers using latest software gain full control over their OTIF performance. They are also able to offer suitable time slots at the point of order taking.

Optimization Engine

Optimization Engine

An F1 engine usually revs up to 18,000 rpm; a refueling pump supplies 12 l of fuel a second. During the race, a driver’s heart rate can reach 200 beats a minute and they can lose 3 liters of fluid.

When buying logistics software, make sure it is powered by algorithms. Only optimization engines that are powered by algorithms can provide enough digital torque to make incredibly complex, time-critical decisions with ease.

Race Data

Race Data

Each F1 car generates more than 3 terabytes of data during a grand prix weekend. Engineers at the track analyze the data in real-time, looking for any adjustment that could help win or loose a race.

Real-time data ensures that your building materials business stays ahead of the pack. Intelligent software automatically updates transport plans every 30 to 120 seconds – allowing dispatchers to keep the focus on their customers.
