Webinar on demand: Automatic stock replenishments in cement distribution
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.
