Holcim is deploying its Transport Analytics Center (TAC) globally to optimize logistics for enhanced efficiency, safety and sustainability. The digital platform contributes to the company’s net zero journey by reducing its Scope 3 emissions, in line with its industry-first target.
TAC is currently active across 50 markets worldwide, covering 1.4 billion km each year, with tracking systems in more than 60,000 trucks.
With its tracking devices, TAC uses data for optimal route mapping, increasing the predictability and safety of deliveries. This proprietary digital tool enables Holcim to transparently track its transportation emissions, including those of its third-party suppliers, to continuously reduce its environmental footprint in line with its Scope 3 emissions target.
“TAC is a great example of how we are becoming a data-driven organization. With our extensive industry expertise and advanced technologies we are developing cutting-edge digital solutions that are tailored to our specific business needs. TAC is a breakthrough for us as well as for our broader industry,” said Jochen Werling, Group CIO at Holcim.
TAC integrates in-vehicle monitoring systems into trucks and correlates their data with other sources, such as ordering and dispatching systems. This enables the company to individually track and monitor truck utilization, routes and driver behavior, leading to improved efficiency, safety and sustainability.
Holcim aims to reduce its Scope 3 emissions related to transportation and fuels by 20% in 2030 (compared to the 2020 baseline of 29 million tons/CO2). With TAC, the company said it is accelerating its reduction target.
