Challenge

Ready-mix concrete is produced by mixing a number of materials including rock, sand, water, and cement to a specific recipe depending upon the customer’s application. Across Denmark and Norway, Unicon operates approximately 80 batch plants all capable of producing a wide range of concrete recipes.

Historically, each plant would have a number of trucks assigned to it depending upon the region in which it was located. Ultimately, Unicon wanted to break down the geographical boundaries and allow trucks to operate across the network of plants.

Solution

The AMCS solution allows Unicon to manage all the elements associated with the successful delivery of ready-mix concrete in real-time and in an online environment. In addition to ensuring tight delivery windows could be met, the new system has the capability to manage constantly changing orders as a result of a range of factors including weather, delays with trades, or other issues which may have affected progress on site.

The AMCS solution allows Unicon to manage all the elements associated with the successful delivery of ready-mix concrete in real-time and in an online environment. In addition to ensuring tight delivery windows could be met, the new system has the capability to manage constantly changing orders as a result of a range of factors including weather, delays with trades, or other issues which may have affected progress on site.

The increased flexibility would increase truck availability and improve the ability to meet delivery windows. As concrete has a relatively short shelf life it would also mean that more loads would arrive in optimal condition and reduce the potential for loads changing the quality whilst in transit.
