The project and interim management services can range between an eight week period to supervise the start-up of an import facility to a 3,5 year assignment to set-up and manage a complete logistical chain to move a large volume of cement and fly ash from Florida to a large construction project in Panama. Another large project that has been realised is the management of the complete redevelopment of a brownfield bulk terminal in the Port of Galveston, Texas.
Shorter assignments include a one year stay in Qatar to set-up fly ash imports in the Middle East from India and a six month assignment to resolve technical, logistical and organisational problems at a grinding plant importing clinker.
The management and operations experience that these projects have provided gives Cement Distribution Consultants a large edge in its consulting services. Having encountered not only all practical aspects of cement and distribution operations but also the negotiations of cement and cementitious materials supply contracts, time charter and voyage charter agreements for ships and well as being on the management team of a USD 400 million project.
