Digital freight matching

India

For ACC Limited, one of LafargeHolcim’s Indian operations, third-party transportation represents approx. 80% of distribution costs. The main challenges here are finding the right capacity at competitive rates and the time-consuming booking process, primarily based on calls, emails or faxes. 

In order to evaluate a digital procurement provider for order placement and journey management, LH Startup MAQER set up a project with the startup BlackBuck, India's largest trucking platform. The results are excellent so far: In July and August, more than 5000 tons were shipped via BlackBuck, resulting in savings within a few weeks. The fast and effective booking process, on-time pick-up & delivery as well as full H&S compliance led to the immediate need for follow-up projects.
