The AX4 solution on construction site logistics includes numerous functions like shipment management with forwarders, goods and time slot controlling or call-off management and tracking of suppliers’ shipments. The functionality is enhanced by meaningful features like a freight cost calculator. A Control Tower is integrated; it fulfills a function which is vital for large construction sites: If there are discrepancies from a pre-alerted delivery in the logistical process the system will sound the alarm – automatically.
"AX4 bundles information and creates transparency on all levels: for transports, deliveries, handling units and material numbers. The provided information is valuable for the operative business as well as for controlling."

Advantage for the construction site’s logistic people: The availability and transit time for required materials can be determined at any given time. Freight cost is reduced as unnecessary restocking of undetectable materials can be avoided. Standardized processes replace Excel workbooks which do contain a lot of knowledge but also a lot of complexity.
All services and aspects of IT solutions for construction site logistics have been included in our whitepaper.
