5. Logistics and Surface Transport
Continuing its commitment towards the LH group’s ‘Zero Harm’ policy, sustainable initiatives taken by the Company have resulted in significant increase in Safe Kilometers. More than 9,000 vehicles are plying with in-vehicle management system (IVMS) technology on-board and 6,000 drivers have been extensively trained with the objective of improving distribution safety. Behavioural trainings to drivers have substantially reduced incidences of speeding and negligent driving.
The Company has embarked upon a journey to digitize the entire supply chain in order to render quality customer services at optimal cost and enhance visibility. This has enabled end-to-end control, right from the planning to the execution stage. Transport Analytics Center (TAC) set up to improve operational efficiencies and distribution safety, is yielding positive returns. To make a difference in customer servicing, real-time inputs of in-vehicle management system (IVMS) are used, through TAC.
Internal re-structuring within the logistics department has benefitted both the inbound and outbound logistics. Structured recruitment process of young and talented professionals and training under LafargeHolcim Logistics Excellence Process is enabling the Company to create a pipeline for future leadership positions.
