Optimizing logistic flows of supplies
How to assess the supply capabilities and identify critical requirements?
The Seine-North Europe Canal aims to connect the Seine basin with the North of France and the Benelux countries through a large-scale canal.
However, the scale of this project requires the supply of several million tons of materials throughout its duration.
Therefore, the Project Owner wished to initiate a comprehensive logistic modeling and analysis on material supply in order to:
- Verify the availability of the required production capacities
- Assess opportunities and economics for modal transfer to waterways and railways
- Determine the infrastructure needed (railway platforms, docks, etc) to facilitate modal transfer
- Identify contractual requirements to be integrated into the company's tender documents.
