Case study

LafargeHolcim uses location to improve safety and sustainability

Discover how the global leader in building materials and solutions created speedier, more efficient concrete delivery.


Now LafargeHolcim can deliver concrete five minutes faster

For building material manufacturers LafargeHolcim, getting concrete delivered within 90 minutes is critical or it will perish.

Concrete trucks are heavy and often hindered by routing restrictions. The challenge was to pinpoint the exact location at the construction site to avoid delay, limit in-person transactions due to COVID-19, and work towards a 'net zero climate pledge' to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
