WHAT MADE THIS JOB COMPLEX
Coordination of large quantities of material to be delivered. Getting to the site and the mixing of material was critical to the timely completion of the job as well as staying within budget.
HOW POSILLICO SOLVED IT
Posillico was able to solve these issues by the use of rail cars. Material was railed into a nearby depot where it was mixed then trucked a short distance to the jobsite. This saved a tremendous amount of time and money because it cut down on fuel costs and trucking.
