Cement Logistics

The high transport costs in relation to the product value are a particular challenge for the cement industry. Since the transport costs largely depend on the delivery distance, the type of transport and the existing infrastructure, modeling cement logistics is an important factor for recording acquisition costs to supply the market.

The optimal transport of cement depends on the specifics of the location and can be carried out by truck, rail, inland vessel, conventional bulk carrier or special cement ship. At distances of 300 km or more, a ship is the most economical alternative.
