FRITZ & MACZIOL (Germany) - The IT-Logistic Solution VAS of FRITZ & MACZIOL becomes an integral part of the “Logistic Efficiency Optimization“ Initiative ("LEO") of the HeidelbergCement AG.
Within this project an integrated material-flow management will be introduced that will lead to a considerable cost reduction in the fields of Logistics for the corporate group. Globally several plants in the business lines of cement, aggregates (sand & gravel) as well as concrete will be equipped with the IT solution VAS from FRITZ & MACZIOL.
The implementation of VAS will lead to a significant optimization for the dispatch and the related logistical processes, as the increased level of automation will result in a much faster execution of many activities within the plants. In this context FRITZ & MACZIOL has also been announced as a "Preferred Supplier" by HeidelbergCement AG. "Due to the large international experience as a hardware independent IT-specialist in the industrial environment and the flexibility in creating an interface to SAP, FRITZ & MACZIOL reflects an ideal partner for us in the fields of IT-Logistics." as Ms Tanja Hofmann, Group Purchasing at HeidelbergCement AG describes the key reasons for this decision.
