About the project with Blackbuck
For ACC Limited, one of Holcim’s Indian operations, third-party transportation represents approx. 80% of distribution costs. The main challenge of the time-consuming booking process, which is primarily based on calls, emails or faxes, is finding the right capacity at competitive rates.
In order to evaluate a digital procurement provider for order placement and journey management, Holcim Startup MAQER set up a project with the startup BlackBuck, India’s largest trucking platform. The results are excellent so far: in July and August 2019, more than 5000 tons were shipped via BlackBuck, resulting in more than 8% cost reduction on pilot routes within a few weeks. The fast and effective booking process, on-time pick-up & delivery as well as full H&S compliance led to the immediate need for follow-up projects.
