How to juggle 30-tonne trucks
AMCS Intelligent Optimisation enables just-in-time delivery of ready-mix concrete
How does 3,827m3 of ready-mix concrete get delivered just-in-time at the new research facilities of the Niels Bohr Institute being built in Copenhagen? The answer is with a series of 30-tonne RMC trucks arriving and unloading in sequences assuring a just-in-time delivery and thus ensuring continuity of work at the building site. “The ready-mix concrete came from 3 production sites across Denmark and was transported by 22 trucks in the incredibly short time of 33 hours”, explains David Hansen, Product Engineer at AMCS. “This obviously complex delivery schedule was possible by using state-of-the-art intelligent optimisation, smart software enabling to real-time plan and optimise transport routes and to re-plan and re-optimise them to guarantee just-in-time delivery throughout the building process."
