FRITZ & MACZIOL supplies logistics systems to two Holcim Russia cement plants

Following the implementation of the VAS logistics solution in two cement plants belonging to Holcim Russia, FRITZ & MACZIOL has been able to strengthen its position in the Russian market. VAS systems have been in operation at the Volsk Holcim plant since summer 2012, and now the Shurovskyi plant at Kolomna is following. Holcim is also beginning to implement real time monitoring in the form of VAS 5, through which truck routes can be traced through various stops, drop-offs and pickups. 

One particular challenge for the systems being put to use in Russia is the extreme temperatures, which can drop to as low as -40°C in winter. Because work doesn’t stop, even at such extremes, FRITZ & MACZIOL had to install terminals and processors that can still operate at these lows for all workplaces that are used outside. Both VAS installations are also connected to the central SAP system in Madrid, through which all orders are administered. On-site, VAS has taken over the processing of deliveries, shipping and printing the associated documents, such as delivery notes, and transmits all the data to the central system again. The extensive evaluation possibilities of VAS are also well adapted to the Russian climate, allowing Holcim accurately trace the utilisation of the individual logistics stations for any given period, meaning that the company can identify and act on seasonal trends.

Teams from both companies are currently working flat out to ensure the equally successful commissioning of the second plant.
