“Logistics” usually describes the movement of people, goods, or products from one place to another; however, logistics in the construction industry describes movement around the construction/project site.

Greger Lundesjo and his team of leading experts examine the expanding role of logistics in construction, offering practical guidance on: arrangements with suppliers, the use of returnable packaging, off-site manufacture and assembly, and IT systems used to manage the supply chain and logistics operations, such as delivery and warehouse management systems. They also consider aspects of the contractual relationships between client, developer, main contractor and lower-tier contractors, all of which have an impact on how the supply chain is managed.
 
With case studies and insights from international companies, this book illustrates how logistics and supply chain management improves overall construction project performance and efficiency, and is ideal for construction managers, as well as researchers and students in the field.

Review:

"An unexpected, positive surprise... If you have any input to the supply chain or purchasing function, in any industry, this book might be capable of improving your company’s bottom line."
(Darren Ingram Autamme.com)

"Bringing construction logistics into the 21st, and arguably even the 20th, Century is essential if the construction industry is to meet the requirements of its clients and customers for cheaper, faster and safer delivery of construction projects.  In this book Greger provides a well-presented and argued analysis of the key logistics issues that the industry must get to grips with if it is to meet these requirements.  His handling of the issue of construction materials consolidation is particularly good and relevant given the focus on congestion and safety in and around urban construction projects." (Gary Sullivan Co-founder and Chairman of Wilson James Ltd.)
