Reviews

"Bringing construction logistics into the 21st, and arguably even the 20th Century, is essential if the construction industry is to meet the requirements of its clients and customers for cheaper, faster and safer delivery of construction projects. In this book, Greger provides a well presented and argued analysis of the key logistics issues that the industry must get to grips with if it is to meet these requirements. His handling of the issue of construction materials consolidation is particularly good and relevant given the focus on congestion and safety in and around urban construction projects." * Gary Sullivan - Construction Logistics specialist, Co-founder and Chairman of Wilson James Ltd, and former Chairman of Essex Olympic Strategic Board for Legacy, and former Chairman of Thames Gateway South Essex Partnership *
"Supply Chain Management & Logistics in Construction contains the collective knowledge of seventeen highly qualified contributors representing a number of roles within the industry - including its suppliers. The construction industry has made a concerted effort to improve their supply chain management, albeit less than other sectors. While the project-oriented nature of construction, as well as the role of sub-contractors, makes the needs of construction unique, it also increases the opportunity for those able to make the right improvements." * Kelly Barner, Buyers Meeting Point *
"This book is a good primer, giving an accurate picture of the role of logistics in the construction industry, and also a source book for those looking for ideas on how the construction industry could learn from mainstream logistics." * Logistics & Transport Focus *
"An unexpected, positive surprise... If you have any input to the supply chain or purchasing function, in any industry, this book might be capable of improving your company's bottom line." * Darren Ingram, Autamme.com *
