Automatic stock replenishment in cement distribution
Growing demand from construction activities supports the market growth of the cement industry and the market size for cement will accelerate accordingly. Cement distributors face especially difficult challenges with the cost of transportation constantly fluctuating. Around 30-35% of the price of cement comes from distribution costs. Empty runs and having a strict, non-flexible planning scheme between vehicles, plants, and regions drive the cost of cement distribution up even further. To protect margins and stay competitive, it’s critical for distributors to lower those costs.

Cement Distribution Presented by: Jan Tønder
This webinar covers other significant pain points in cement distribution that can also be addressed with smart technology and digitalization. One challenge is managing large orders on large contracts, which can be bulk and/or bag orders. Manual planning can be extremely demanding on your resources. You need to ensure profitability on the orders to protect your margins.
An important factor for cement producers, which can impact operational efficiency and margin expansion, is the use of external haulers. The management and communication with those third-party partners, as well as the tracking of orders and execution, is challenging to say the least when it traditionally means dealing with an overwhelming paper trail. It is possible to solve the problem while empowering your operation with smart software and enabling your external haulers to bring their own devices.
All this and more during this cement webinar. Join our industry experts as they introduce how intelligent optimization software can help overcome these challenges while expanding margins and excelling growth.
