Ready mixed concrete

Dyckerhoff Basal Betonmortel B.V., the ready mixed concrete division, has a total of 15 ready mixed concrete plants over the Netherlands. They operate daily in order to fulfil every request within the distribution area. This means that Dyckerhoff Basal can prepare the delivery weeks in advance of the start of a project. However, there are also situations where time is insufficient, for example, due to a change in construction planning. Here, speed is of the essence, because the quality of the concrete will otherwise be endangered. One phone call sets the whole advanced ‘concrete machine’ in motion and a few hours later the customer receives their order. Dyckerhoff Basal has developed its Conactive Management Planning System specially for these situations. Every concrete mixer truck is fitted with a status reporting system enabling it to interact literally minute by minute in the route planning. This means that if a disaster occurs somewhere within a region, planning is simply adjusted from the computer centre.
