Which kind of logistic profile has your construction project?

The test provides to both local authorities and construction companies a framework for making the construction logistics and supply chain more efficient.

It is designed to assess the logistic complexity of a construction project and explore solutions adapted to your profile among 75 solutions to address the logistic challenges.

Follow the four step approach.
