Organising logistics and transport activities in construction
Journal article, 2019
Design/methodology/approach – Three configurations are derived from the literature and from case studies. The efficiency of the three configurations is analysed on three levels of analysis: the construction site, the supply chain, and across supply chains and construction sites.
Findings – The paper concludes that there are possibilities to enhance efficiency on all three levels of analysis by widening the scope of coordination beyond the individual construction site.
Practical implications – The analysis points to efficiency potentials in applying the supply network coordinated configuration, although this configuration puts high demands on collaboration amongst the actors involved.
Originality/value – The paper provides illustration, and explanation, of the efficiency potentials involved in the three configurations.
