Logistics plan

Groups: 
  • Design-Build Contracts
Category: 
  • Rigging and Operations
  • Transportation

Basic

Requirements and Criteria Type: 
  • Contract Terms

Main Objective: 

The logistics plan must reduce the environmental impact from the construction site by optimising logistics and implementing the measures in the logistics strategy.

Requirement Specification: 

If a logistics strategy has been prepared during the project planning stage, this strategy must be used as the basis for the preparation of the logistics plan. Otherwise, the contractor must prepare and implement logistics plans for the different project phases <X> weeks after entering into the contract. As a minimum, the plan must cover the following areas:

  • Organisation of goods deliveries and return logistics (avoid idling)
  • Correct delivery at the correct time
  • Efficient organisation of transport of personnel to/from the construction site
  • Efficient organisation of internal logistics at the construction site, including daily rig plans
  • Waiting/reloading areas
  • Any storage/temporary storage
  • Transport routes in/out of the area and to the nearest main road
  • Risk-reducing measures
  • Sea traffic; scheduled traffic, etc. (if relevant)

Information about the Requirement Specification: 

The client must assess whether this contractual condition would be relevant for use based on the size of the project, transport distances and quantities. The larger the project, the greater the climate and economic benefits. Emissions can be reduced by planning and coordinating deliveries and return of waste/equipment with vehicles/vessels to and from the site.

Examples of various HUB use types:

•             Hub or shared goods reception at the construction site. A separate logistics partner is responsible for ensuring that the goods are delivered to the correct recipient, so that contractors do not have to spend time identifying the correct recipient within the construction site.

•             Hub outside of the construction site, where all deliveries to the construction site are coordinated/consolidated through the organisation of shared transport to the construction site.

•             Establishment of hub to coordinate/consolidate deliveries to the construction site across each construction site/contractor. This could be particularly relevant for larger development areas incorporating multiple construction projects.

•             Area/hub for temporary storage of materials and/or processing of materials in close proximity to the construction site.

•             Separate hub for the collection of waste from the construction site. At this hub, the various waste fractions can be sorted prior to transport to the final landfill/recipient.

The organisation of deliveries to the construction site and return of waste can, to some extent, be compared to the organisation of deliveries to and return logistics from shopping centres with a shared goods reception and a logistics partner responsible for all internal logistics at the shopping centre.

Advanced

Requirements and Criteria Type: 
  • Contract Terms

Main Objective: 

The logistics plan must reduce the environmental impact from the construction site by optimising logistics and implementing the measures in the logistics strategy.

Requirement Specification: 

The contractor must prepare and implement logistics plans for the various project phases. The plan must cover all phases of the project, as well as all goods, material, machinery/equipment and resource flow. The plan must support the goal of reducing the environmental impact from the construction site through the following areas:

  • Interface to the rigging and land protection plan (location of rig areas)
  • Sequence of activities based on the schedule
  • Use of logistics hubs (terminals/intermediate storage) for machinery storage during certain phases of the construction project
  • Control procedures for all transport to/from and entering/exiting the construction site (e.g. removal/delivery of materials, piles, etc.).
  • Return logistics
  • Efficient organisation of transport of personnel to/from the construction site
  • Traffic information and traffic management, access and exit roads
  • Measures and plan to resolve risk factors in the logistics strategy
