Building materials wholesale

Logistics solutions for the building materials wholesale trade

Innovations for your industry

The building materials industry is one of the oldest industries in the world. This is hardly surprising, as people have been erecting structures and buildings since time immemorial. Nowadays, building materials are used in all areas of the construction industry, including building construction, civil engineering and drywall construction. They range from building materials such as slabs, paving stones and bulk material to other building materials such as bricks, wood and concrete blocks. A building materials wholesaler offers a wide selection of these materials in large quantities to meet the needs of construction companies, craftsmen and other professionals in the construction industry.

Warehouse management software pLG WMS Wholesale

Warehouse logistics for your building materials wholesale business

Due to the extensive range and heavy materials, the building materials trade faces particular challenges, regardless of whether it sells to private or commercial customers. It is crucial to ensure the shortest possible waiting time for pickers and to carefully plan the picking sequences for larger and smaller building materials. It is also important to compact pallets as efficiently as possible in order to save space on trucks.

Our pLG WMS Wholesale was specifically tailored to the requirements of the building materials industry.
