Procurement and Logistics
Procurement and Logistics
Schedule delays can often be attributed to building materials which do not arrive on the jobsite when needed. This is usually due to poor procurement and logistics practices. Some of the materials will be long lead items, which must be ordered months ahead of time and be scheduled to arrive on the jobsite on a specific schedule. This is part of the procurement and logistics process.
Nationwide Consulting LLC anticipates the long lead items and oversees the procurement and logistics process, to mitigate any schedule delays related to materials. This process is an integral part of our scheduling program, and must be implemented in conjunction with the master schedule.
From the supplier to the company
The application of logistics concepts in terms of procurement is called procurement and logistics. It covers all activities that provide a construction project with raw materials, tools and operational supplies as well as with purchase and replacement parts. In the past, the necessary materials were primarily obtained from local sources. Today, a contractor can readily obtain them around the world thanks to global networks and the Internet. This has an impact on logistics as well.
With Nationwide Consulting LLC on your team, the problems of procurement and logistics are handled, and expensive delays are dealt with the experience of a project partner that understands and solves problems before they become an issue.
