Who We Help in the Construction Industry

Challenges We Address

Losses due to logistics and delivery scheduling inefficiencies

 

Limited unloading areas in built up urban centers

 

Increase in compliance needs on construction project for local authorities, developers, and security

Reactive approach to booking that limits flexibility and planning

 

Low profitability in construction

 

Logistics can be 10-20% of costs

 

General Contractors

Voyage Control helps General Contractors improve site productivity through a reduction in wasted or failed deliveries and reduced queuing for trucks.

Examples

Voyage Control allows you to replace your whiteboard with a calendar that is updated in real time, making morning meetings much more effective.

 

Know the origin of deliveries so that you can prepare for any needed inspections of materials.

Site Supervisor

Account for resource constraints and align bay, hoist, and crane schedules with deliveries

Project Managers

Cross-site access to information for analytics and productivity reporting

Project & Field Engineers

Schedule and view deliveries in real time. Drastically reduce phone calls to avoid double/triple bookings.

Foreman

View upcoming deliveries and check in deliveries as they arrive

Executive Team

Increase operational efficiency to improve margins

Sub Contractors

We help Sub Contractors improve their productivity through a reduction in wasted or failed deliveries to a site.

Examples

Provide visibility into the usage of resources, such as cranes and forklifts, so that different subs aren’t waiting idle to use them.

 

Drivers hit a traffic jam and all arrive at the same time where half of the drivers are unproductive and have to sit idly while the rest unload.

Drivers

Show up on site and know exactly where to drive to drop your load off.

The right resources are available and ready for you when you arrive.

Dispatchers

Provide more visibility in to when your drivers are arriving on site.

Optimize turn time to get more trips to sites.

Developers

Developers benefit by using the Voyage Control system because it gives them improved management through the build and operation phases, cut costs through a reduction in failed deliveries, and demonstrate compliance with local municipality requirements.

Examples

During a project, developers have access to time-stamped delivery information which can be used as evidence for noise and emissions compliance issues.

On-site safety is increased due to vehicles being checked in and out during every delivery.

Local Community

The local community benefits when Voyage Control is used because it reduces traffic congestion and impact on the surrounding areas throughout the construction process.

Examples

Reduce scenarios where trucks queue on the street causing traffic jams.

 

Ensure that any construction related activities are occurring inside the confinement of the site.

"“Voyage Control increases site efficacy through clear and transparent scheduling of deliveries, connecting stakeholders (subcontractors, GC, and owners), maximizing loading dock and hoist efficiency , and capturing information for analytics and productivity reporting.”"
Project Engineer for Suffolk Construction
"Voyage Control takes the place of the multiple daily and sometime hourly phone calls from all the foreman to any of our field staff all day long. It also provides the subs with a real time, application based look at what is available for delivery times and locations. "

Success Stories

Our software has been used at a range of construction sites.

 

We’re providing visibility into delivery arrival times to improve productivity and reduce congestion at the construction of major skyscrapers in urban areas.

 

The software has been applied in healthcare and facilities management projects, among others, to facilitate the typically time-intensive and opaque delivery scheduling process.

 

We’re also finding opportunities to use the software for General Contractors to help meet security compliance needs when doing construction in the US capitol, as well as at hospital sites.
