Holcim India launches Transport Analytics Center to improve logistics
Holcim is introducing a play industry-leading Transport Analytics Center (TAC) in 35 plants of ACC and Ambuja in India to streamline its planning for efficiency, road safety, and sustainability.
Currently, TAC is following over 20,000 trucks via several data sources like in-vehicle monitoring system (IVMS), ERP, NFC, RFID, and others for high-level analytics and artificial intelligence applications.
Transportation accounts for nearly a fifth of the world's emissions, and moving forward with more limits is a necessary part of the Net-Zero pledge of ACC and Ambuja Cement. TAC, implemented in India in 2018, was established with the aim of monitoring road safety KPIs, which benefited both the firms to accomplish about 75% km without any safety violations and a 60% decrease in offsite incidents.
