Do we think of logistics as one of the most important issues in construction? We use best practices in logistics to accommodate materials on a construction site when we have to move slabs and slabs up and down within the same plot of land, taking up all of its free space. Within Lean Construction, one of the biggest wastes is waiting – waiting for a material to be in the right place to be used – followed by lack of order (let’s call it planning and movement of resources). This is a session specifically to get us in touch with the benefits of efficient logistics management in the construction industry and its impact on Construction Project Management. There is a lot of confusion in the construction industry about the meaning of Logistics Management (LCM) and Supply Chain Management (SCM). And we must delve deeper into these concepts of logistics management in construction companies and the benefits of an effective application in projects. Much of this knowledge has been taken from the development of the automotive industry in Japan, which is why Lean Construction is a reflection of Lean Production. Now, Logistics Management is considered part of supply chain management -something commonly ignored in our sector- and it is developed by each of the companies that make up its links. A part of supply chain management that plans, carries out, and controls the flow, direct and reverse, and the effective and efficient storage of goods and services, as well as related information, from the point of origin to the point of consumption; all of this with the objective of satisfying consumer requirements.
