Capital projects typically have deliveries from tens or even hundreds of suppliers. Smaller project deliveries may only consist of a few packages, but material deliveries in large international projects arrive in thousands of  sea containers, each consisting of hudrerds of packages. This scale of material deliveries typically creates the following issues:

  • It is difficult for project logistics to find precise information on the deliveries and their exact contents.
  • Details of material deliveries are sent via emails and Excels, which is time-consuming. Information is highly reliant on a few individuals in an organization.
  • It is near impossible to locate a specific component in a large shipment.
  • At the construction site, materials are not found for assembly from containers and packages.

MHS resolves key issues with tracking material deliveries 

The Material Handling System has been developed to resolve the key issues with tracking materials to large-scale construction sites. Material suppliers report precise details of their material deliveries into MHS. This ensures that key information relating to material flows is traceable for everyone in the project network.
