How to manage logistics on your building site

The logistical movement of freight traffic is a daily occurrence on building sites. Using access control for freight traffic helps to ensure optimal efficiency. An obvious and separate entrance and exit for freight traffic helps make it clear which suppliers and goods are present on the building site, and provides an insight into and overview of the history, so you know what transport movements you can expect. A controlled entrance and exit also keeps unauthorised persons off the building site.

Organising access for people at the building site

In order to prevent unwanted visits, a building site needs to be properly closed off to unauthorised persons both during and after working hours. Clear access with the right access control measures in place ensures that unauthorised persons are kept off the building site during working hours. This gives contractors the assurance that only the people who need to be on site have access to it, which also limits the risk of any theft.
