Project Logistics Management IT Tools
This subject needs some attention for the simple reason that it has become more and more essential for our customers that a good IT Tool is used to run and operate their projects and or heavy lift and project freight shipments.
Using the right tool means that you will have full transparent management and controlling during the project live cycle. Any disruption in a project costs time and money without fail and XELLZ® is determined to eliminate all this for its customers..

The use of our IT Tool, projeXsmart™, requires a strict discipline from all parties involved to make project freight management work the way it was agreed and for that reason, XELLZ has partnered with iBrabble B.V. (Educations & Events) to ensure that all our staff as well as our customers and subcontractors are well trained before we start any project.
When people start distrusting a tool and start sending emails again, there is the risk that not everybody is getting this information and so there will be a gap created in the project. This could have serious consequences from a process and from a project execution point which ultimately translate in delays and over spending.
Project Logistics Management requires strong managers and discipline from all parties involved, which means that we also train all our staff, customers and subcontractors in a high level of project freight and logistics management in corporation with iBrabble B.V. who are well experienced to lecture and train on project freight management as the only training company in this field.
Our IT Tool, projeXsmart™, doesn’t take away the interaction between people during the project execution and for that reason there are regular meetings/conference calls planned throughout the project for different stakeholders involved.
