What Makes the Construction Materials Supply Chain Unique?
We are all familiar with the houses we live in and the roads we drive on. However, we probably don’t think much about its construction materials or how they get to construction sites.
Most people can think of supply chains as container ships or tankers traveling across oceans. It’s important to note that, like any supply chain, there are buyers, sellers, and logistics providers.
The traditional freight forwarding model also works higher up in the construction materials supply chain. But all that changes when you get to the job site. Whether you are talking about houses, commercial constructions, roads, or bridges, since there are inspectors involved at every step, this isn’t a simple transaction.
So, there are some unique considerations on how things are made compared to other industries. Even if you are dealing with the same contractors and building the same buildings or roads, the sites and their climates will be different. These are two factors that can completely change the way you work in the project.
BFF International addresses problems related to the transportation of construction or finishing materials. For this, we develop efficient solutions to the most complicated logistics challenges.
The use of suitable means of transport and containers ensures the safe delivery of goods door to door. Besides, our transportation services include cargo security monitoring with the use of modern navigation systems.

Combined Transport Schemes
The international transport of construction materials and renovation equipment is carried out by one or more means of transport. This type of transport includes the following:
- Optimized loading.
- Agile transportation plans and flexibility in the delivery of concrete.
- Bulk goods.
- Asphalt, cement, and palletized goods.
This work is done during the planning stage and on the day of delivery.
During the planning stage, numerous objectives, inputs, variables, and constraints must be considered. For example, the different characteristics of trucks and alternative places of production and storage. We must also think about freight lines and frequent delivery location changes.
Besides, on the day of delivery, unpredictable events such as vehicle breakdowns, traffic delays, among others, must be considered. This is because nothing should be allowed to cause a breach of service level agreements. So, agile optimization and flexibility offer different competitive advantages.
