Building Materials Trade
and Construction Materials

The transport of building materials is associated with specialist framework conditions that make dispatching a particularly demanding task. For example, due to its dependence on weather conditions, the building and construction materials industry is characterised above all by very short-term orders and order changes, to which dispatching must react flexibly. At the same time, punctual just-in-time delivery is of great importance, as smooth processes must be guaranteed on the construction site.

With OPHEO, we offer a software for transport management and dispatching with integrated telematics which is ideally tailored to the specialist requirements of the building materials industry. The great strength of OPHEO lies in the compact graphical display of all information about quantities, times, utilization and current vehicle status.

What is special about OPHEO: our software even looks ahead and informs the dispatcher where bottlenecks or problems could occur in the next few hours. OPHEO therefore supports the building materials planner in an intelligent way and saves logistics costs.

Another advantage of OPHEO is its high flexibility: OPHEO is able to map every type of building material with its individual planning logic. Multi-chamber silo trains or tarpaulin vehicles, for example, require different dispatching than tippers, truck mixers or concrete pumps. OPHEO is also equipped for the delivery to new construction areas without exact address information. This makes OPHEO the ideal software for the entire building materials industry.
