Details Logistics Tech Short: Rivals or Allies? Yard and Road in Cement Logistics


Some cement producers have optimized their yard processes, while others have optimized their transport processes. And the lucky few who have optimized both, in-plant and outbound logistics, hesitate to connect the two worlds. Yard and distribution, however, are key drivers for customer satisfaction and a stronger bottom-line.

In this Logistics Tech Short we will take you on a road trip to connected cement distribution.

Axians, a leader in yard management technology and INFORM, the transport optimization software provider, will open the gate and give insights into how to overcome the barriers between in-plant and outbound logistics.

You'll Learn

  1. An update on latest yard technology and algorithms for transport optimization.
  2. How an integrated process design can optimize the utilization of all logistical assets.
  3. A step-by-step roadmap on how to connect production, yard, and distribution.
  4. A quick look into possibilities of yard management automation & optimization.
  5. How to push the full envelope of your logistics performance.
