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. Producing a construction logistics plan has become a necessity for many projects. Large and small enterprises are operating in an environment where uncertainty and risks are increasing. Some local authorities now request that a logistics plan is submitted to them to ensure minimum disruption to the public and the environmental impact. For more specialist work, such as in defence, power, rail, and airports, the clients will insist on seeing a logistics plan. Logistics can add value and save money. Many major industries recognise the importance of logistics, they use a third-party specialist contractor as a matter of course. In construction the benefits of logistics are being recognised, with many companies using logistics specialists, and some developing in-house logistics expertise.
