Managing deliveries through a call off and stock control system

Sites should be aware of the impact that their project is having on the community and environment.

The carbon emissions and waste generated from your project must be recorded and measures implemented to minimise them.

Below is an example of how sites can manage deliveries to avoid waste and disruption:

  • Deliveries were managed using an integrated call off and stock control system;
  • The delivery schedule was scanned into the inventory software and as materials arrived they were allocated to storage zones within the building, this ensured that both the stock quality and the precise location of material was known;
  • When stocks dropped to a set level, further call offs were made;
  • This ‘just in time’ system used integrated software and ensured that vehicle movements were both minimised and also timed to avoid disruptions.

This system increased efficiency and decreased waste.
