Construction of buildings brings together an extreme wide range of competencies. Many suppliers are covering a niche with their products. Specific products for a specific requirement.
International or global players are making it difficult for smaller suppliers to stay in the business. Only high quality, flexible customer service and an agile logistic are sometimes the important differentiator.
Challenge of the Building suppliers industry
Often products are coming from different warehouses and have to be at the construction site or partners warehouse at a fixed date and time. A late delivery of only a single component has a big impact, the scheduled work at the construction site is standing still.
Last minute ordering processes: often customers are ordering the needed products only with a very short pre-advice time. Deliveries are expected within 24 hours or even less. As a consequence, the supply chain needs to be controlled in house, sometimes the own fleet is the only way, how this can be fulfilled.
