Description

In the construction industry, risk management has a significant importance. Focusing on site planning is one of the key factors on how efficiently a project begins, develops and finishes. The challenge is the dynamic of site logistics changes from one project to another. It is the management of all activities on a site, which facilitate movement and coordination of the people, material, and equipment. Developing a site logistics plan is different for all companies, but there are factors that are integrated in every plan. The research shows that site logistic plans are a driving factor on whether a construction company is successful or not in managing their projects efficiently and safely. Creating a site specific logistics plan will improve the company project management practices. This research used a questionnaire survey to collect information about the best practices in developing site logistic plan. Four contractors were contacted to respond to this questionnaire survey. The questionnaire was used to gain an understanding of what must be included into a site logistics plan. These questions focused on how a company develops and executes a plan. The survey results and analysis provide insights on how to develop a thorough logistics plan.
