What is construction logistics management?
Different roles and skills are required to deliver a successful build project; one that is constructed safely, on time, in budget and meets the project brief.
Although job titles are not always used consistently, the key aspects of any role will be:
- Scope of responsibility
- Level of authority
- Focus of activities
Broadly, we can divide construction and site management roles into three categories:
- Project Management roles
- Safety, Health, Environment and Quality
- Site and Construction Management
Construction Logistics managers are responsible for all aspects of the logistics supply chain, stores management, development and optimisation of site logistics solutions to meet the needs of the project. The logistics manager will be required to manage the movement of people, goods and equipment at the construction site and control site facilities management.
