Germany: The IT logistic solution VAS, of FRITZ & MACZIOL, has become an integral part of the 'Logistic Efficiency Optimisation' (LEO) initiative initiative of HeidelbergCement.
Within the project, an integrated material-flow management will be introduced that will lead to a considerable cost reduction in the fields of logistics. Globally, several plants in the cement, aggregates as well as concrete businesses will be equipped with VAS. The implementation of VAS will lead to a significant optimisation of the dispatch and related logistical processes, as the increased level of automation will result in a much faster execution of many activities within the plants.
In this context, FRITZ & MACZIOL has also been announced as a 'preferred supplier' by HeidelbergCement. "FRITZ & MACZIOL reflects an ideal partner for us in the fields of IT logistics," said Tanja Hofmann, HeidelbergCement's group purchasing spokesperson.
HeidelbergCement currently runs the IT-Logistic solution VAS at four of its German cement plants. The solution will now be further implemented in its remaining German plants. At the same time both sides will work on the international roll-out.
