9781405151245: Managing Construction Logistics

Every major industry except construction uses logistics to improve its bottom line...

Poor logistics is costing the construction industry at least £3 billion a year according to a report – ‘Improving Construction Logistics’ – published by the Strategic Forum for Construction.  Additional costs arise as a result of operatives waiting for materials, and skilled craftsmen being used for unskilled jobs. Inadequate management of logistics also has an adverse effect on quality, causes delays to projects, and adds to the health and safety risks on site. 

This practical book highlights the benefits of good logistics as well as the use of consolidation centres on projects. It shows how reduction in transport movements, less money tied up in stock, less waste, and the more efficient use of skilled craftsmen will reduce the cost of projects, reduce construction time, improve quality, reduce risks to health and safety, improve environmental performance and generally improve the image of the industry.

The authors offer practical ways of achieving these benefits through integrated project teams and supply chains and the increased adoption of information technology including electronic communications, bar coding, and electronic tagging for tracing products. They also show how specific roles for each part of the industry can help to improve logistics.


· Practical, clear and accessible
· First book to address logistics in construction
· Written by the industry-recognized logistics experts
· Tackles issues of key concern: efficient use of labour; sustainability; waste and supply chain management

From the Back Cover:

"I believe that constructors ignore this book at their peril. These techniques will soon be core to every construction business. The only question for industry decision-makers is to decide whether they want to get ahead of the curve by changing now, or wait until a streamlined and competitive industry forces them to adapt just to remain viable. As a client, I know what I’d recommend."
Peter Rogers, CBE, Chairman of the Green Building Council

Poor logistics is costing the construction industry at least £3 billion a year. Additional costs arise as a result of operatives waiting for materials, and skilled craftsmen being used for unskilled jobs. Inadequate management of logistics also has an adverse effect on quality, causes delays to projects, and adds to the health and safety risks on site.

Every major industry except construction uses logistics to improve its bottom line.

This practical, clear and accessible book highlights the benefits of good logistics in construction as well explaining the use of consolidation centres for projects. It shows how reduction in transport movements, less money tied up in stock, less waste, and the more efficient use of skilled craftsmen will reduce the cost of projects, reduce construction time, improve quality, reduce risks to health and safety, improve environmental performance and generally improve the image of the industry.

The authors - industry-recognized logistics experts - offer tried-and-tested ways of achieving these benefits through integrated project teams and supply chains, and the increased adoption of information technology.

Managing Construction Logistics includes a wide range of lively and detailed case studies – from Terminal 5 to the Tate Gallery – showing how good logistics tackles the ‘hot potato’ issues within the construction industry: efficient use of labour; sustainability; waste and supply chain management.
