Title: Construction logistics: an introduction

Ref Code: DG459
Authors: R M Hill and R Ballard

Abstract1: Good site logistics practice is more than just ensuring that delivery vehicles turn up on time; it is about ensuring that design, procurement and construction practices are optimised to facilitate the efficient delivery, movement and installation of materials and components. In other words, it is about eliminating waste in all its forms. This Digest, based on research by BRE in association with The Logistics Business Ltd, introduces the concept of construction logistics and explains the benefits to be gained by adopting good logistics practice.
