Those in the construction industry know that there are two crucial logistics operations throughout the duration of a project. In order to start working on an infrastructure, the materials needed for the project must be ready on site. Thus, construction materials delivery is vital since it supplies the items needed to complete the project. As the construction project progresses, more and more unwanted rubble piles up on the site. This is where debris hauling services come in. Transportify, a truck booking app, can provide these two logistics services at affordable rates. Get a price check now.
Logistics operations in construction projects
Managing a construction project is not an easy feat. There are many factors to study and consider such as the requirements of the clients, designs of the architects and the numerous laws in the Philippines which govern construction activities. There is the added problem of how to get materials from different locations and bring them to the construction site. Furthermore, debris caused by ongoing construction operations must be cleared out in order to make room for construction materials. Fortunately, Transportify has the solutions to these logistical problems.
A construction operation usually begins with the client telling the construction company plans about a desired project. Whether it is a new house, office building or even a shopping mall, the engineers in the construction company take careful notes of how the client wants the project to turn out in order to build the design of the new infrastructure. After this step, the construction company inspects the site where the project will take place. Usually, a site clearing operation is necessary in order to transfer unwanted rubble to a dumpsite. By clearing away these unwanted materials, the land is made clear and ready for the new construction project. Thus, one can say that the debris hauling operation is crucial in the whole construction process.

Procurement of construction materials
The procurement of materials for the construction project is another part where trucking companies play a vital role. The crucial objective is finding out where to get the different materials to be used in the construction project. At this point, a logistics company providing construction materials delivery is needed to transport goods from the hardware store to the site. It is also important to note that construction materials delivery should not be delayed. If the delivery of construction materials gets delayed, the whole project gets delayed as well. Procuring materials is such an important step in the entire operation that a reliable third party logistics company providing construction materials delivery should be used by construction companies. Furthermore these companies must provide the appropriate vehicles for debris hauling services and construction materials delivery.
Using the right vehicles
Mini dump trucks are heavy duty and dependable vehicles for these sort of logistics operations that support the construction project. The mini dump can haul any type of construction materials from loose aggregates like sand and gravel to items like bricks and cement. Another use for this type of truck is debris hauling logistics. Because it has an open dump body which can be lifted by a hydraulic cylinder, rubble and other loose materials can easily be dumped at appropriate locations. However, debris hauling in a construction project is not a one time occurrence. As the construction progresses, many unwanted rubble and debris pile up which would occupy space that could have been used to store construction items. Thus, frequent trips of the mini dump truck doing debris hauling services is necessary for a construction project.
When it comes to construction materials delivery, a pickup truck is one of the most ideal vehicle types for this operation. Its long body and large carrying capacity makes it capable of transporting materials like scaffolding structures, bricks, hollow blocks and lumber products. A pick up truck is also known as a “drop side truck” which means that it can put down the “gates” on all three sides of the vehicle. Thus, the construction materials delivery process is made easy since loading and unloading of materials can happen from all sides.
Transportify, an app based trucking and logistics company, has mini dump trucks and pickup trucks for operations such as construction materials delivery and debris hauling services. A construction company does not need to have its own fleet of trucks to fulfill the logistics operations of every project. It can outsource this to 3PL companies like Transportify which offers plenty of useful app features at affordable rates.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Why is debris hauling needed in construction operations?
Debris hauling is important in construction projects for numerous reasons. One reason is that construction companies make use of debris hauling services when they clear the area before actual construction takes place. Unwanted items are loaded in a vehicle like the mini dump truck and transferred to a dump site. Another reason is that debris hauling services remove unwanted rubble and loose materials that piles up on the project site as the result of construction operations.
What items do trucks carry when doing construction materials delivery?
Because a construction project can be big and diverse, many kinds of materials are being transferred during these delivery operations. Common construction materials include hollow blocks, reformed bars, lumber products, scaffolding structures and bricks. Hollow blocks and reformed bars form the foundation of the infrastructure. Lumber products are often used as floor boards or made into furniture items and scaffolding structures serve as platforms for construction workers.
