Intelligent transport solutions for building materials

Specific and well thought-out concepts are required for the transport of building materials in order to fulfil the requirements of the industry. As a rule, the building materials are first taken to an appropriate warehouse, from where further transport to the respective places of use is organised and managed. This process is also part of the comprehensive transport solutions for building materials. We distinguish here between procurement transport and distribution transport to the recipient or processor on a construction site. But what special logistical features need to be considered when it comes to building materials?

The right solution for every product condition

Special features of building material transport distribution

Every building material has a different composition and must therefore be transported and stowed individually.

While bulk goods such as gravel and sand are transported in large quantities over long distances, often by rail and barge, distribution to the construction site involves smaller consignments. The last mile to the customer is largely carried out by lorry.

Efficient transport of bulk materials to the construction project

This strategy utilises appropriate transport equipment to avoid mixing different building materials.

Skip lorries with a tipping function are used to transport loose, bulk and free-flowing material. Products that need to remain dry are transported in closed silo lorries. These products (such as cement, lime or gypsum) are blown out under pressure.

Transportable construction site silos are available on construction sites as temporary storage. These are brought to the construction project using special lorries and can be refilled. The processor removes the material from the storage silo as construction progresses.

Modern transport solutions

Optimum unloading with special lorries

Customised transport solutions for building materials usually enable you to optimally meet the customer's needs from a technical perspective.

Where there is a lack of unloading equipment on the construction site, additional machines and transport assistants are used: special lorries are equipped with their own unloading equipment, which is operated by a trained driver.
For example, a building materials crane lorry provides support when unloading heavy products such as paving stones.

A truck-mounted forklift helps to unload bulky goods - i.e. large-volume packages that cannot be unloaded via a tail lift - and transport them to their destination.

Practical advantages through transport solutions for building materials

With special transport solutions in the construction industry, you have the advantage that direct shipping of the relevant components becomes possible. Unlike consolidated containers by air or sea freight or split truck loads, construction materials usually take up the entire capacity. Thus, you do not have to join forces with other partners, but take care of your own transport chain.

You have the following advantages with individual transport solutions for building materials:

  • Demand-oriented and safe transport
  • Optimal linkage with logistics
  • Easy handling for every project
  • Individual planning of new transport routes
  • International network of service providers


We would like to accompany you internationally in your projects around the suitable transport solutions. Therefore, you can expect distinctive logistics and transport structures that convince with digital IT tools and platforms.

This simplifies the location recording, the recognition of the expected delivery time and the planning of further shipping structures. Around our large network of suitable partners, you are always on the safe side for this.


Logistics and transport from a single source

Especially in the field of building materials, it is desirable to combine the logistical processes with practical transport.

Already within the planning, the appropriate block trains can be planned according to your requirements in order to transport several building materials in several wagons. Through additional services such as filling the trucks, containers and wagons, you completely outsource the resulting work and rely on the experience of the experts on site.


You also retain control over the time frame of the respective delivery.

This means that you do not have to deal with the complex planning processes, but can guarantee punctual delivery in joint consultation with your customers.

Additional insurances and other securities are also at your side in case of possible special cases. So it is not you who bears the risk in case of delays around your transport solutions for building materials.

Connect rail and road for your building materials

In order to make logistics and transport of construction materials as efficient as possible in today's world, the combination of trains and truck transport is a suitable approach. In this way, you do not have to rely solely on roads or purely on rail transport.

Feel free to consult with the appropriate partners and increase your efficiency. Here at LogCoop we accompany you in optimizing all transport solutions around your building materials.
