Time is money when it comes to resurfacing a runway at Amsterdam’s busy Schiphol airport. Project leader Heijmans, a nearly century-old Dutchbased construction company, went looking for a state-of-the-art resource management system, and it found one that works perfectly with Atlas Copco equipment. The system results in more efficient logistics, less waste and a smaller environmental impact.
Since 2010 we have constantly been upgrading aspects of our business. In 2014 we finalized a navigation system for road rollers. Next we turned our attention to the logistics chain.
