Logistics strategy

Groups: 
  • Design Projects
Category: 
  • Rigging and Operations
  • Transportation

Basic

Requirements and Criteria Type: 
  • Contract Terms

Main Objective: 

Logistics must be streamlined and must reduce costs. Logistics management is a tool and an aid for providing improved flow in the delivery of goods and materials, as well as management of return logistics during the construction period. Overall, this contributes to reducing the environmental impact from the construction site by optimising the logistics.

Requirement Specification: 

A logistics strategy describing the procedures for optimisation of logistics must be created for the entire project period.

The logistics strategy must be submitted within <X weeks> of entering into the contract and must cover the following areas (select):

  • Material and goods deliveries to the site
  • Return logistics
  • Use of logistics hubs (terminals/intermediate storage) in the project
  • Organisation of machinery and equipment to/from site
  • Organisation of transport of personnel to/from site
  • Organisation of internal logistics on site

Documentation of the Requirement Specification: 

Strategy document

Calculation of CO2 reduction for the measures included in the strategy

Information about the Requirement Specification: 

This contractual condition is particularly relevant for larger projects or long-term developments. It is important to perform detailed logistics planning during the project planning phase. Framework conditions, such as access routes, traffic conditions, other construction activity and contract strategies, should be clarified prior to work commencing on the strategy. Risk assessments form an important part of the work and must be included in the logistics strategy. This could include risks such as limited space, working conditions at sea, traffic limitations, limitations due to nearby residential properties, hospitals, etc. The basis for the logistics strategy will be the client’s ambitions and goals for logistics. If this has not been clarified from the start, it should be defined at the start of the work on the strategy, in collaboration between the client and project planners.

The model below describes the logistics strategy and various operational levels in the project.

  • Organisation of internal logistics on site
  • Plan for mass haul calculations
  • Control procedures for transport to/from site (e.g. removal/delivery of materials, piling, etc.)
  • Traffic information concerning weather, driving conditions, queues, scheduled traffic (goods, vessels), etc. and traffic management for sensible access and exit roads/quays/stations, depending on traffic information
  • Efficient unloading and loading of materials on site
  • Establishment of logistics hub for collection and sorting of waste from the construction site

The contractor must perform calculations showing how the strategy will contribute towards a reduction in emissions.
