Let Zone Manager tick the compliance box for you.
That is why you can effortlessly achieve part of the BREEAM New Construction category requirements Man 03 Responsible Construction Practices (4 a/b/c/d/e) with Zone Manager.
Specifically, referring to the ‘Responsible Construction Management’ assessment criteria Zone Manager can assist with vehicle management (4a/b/c) and pollution management (4d/e) by:
-Managing all deliveries to site which will not only avoid delivery slot clashes but will also minimise the impact from vehicles approaching and leaving the site. (4a)
-Specific management of ‘on-street’ loading areas as a specific delivery point. (4b)
-Gives trade contractors logins to give them information about the site including maps and access routes to the site plans and logistics plans which minimises traffic disruption and safety risks. (4c)
-Producing CO2 reports in moments which can then be printed or exported to your environmental systems. (4d/e)
-Delivering key information in order to identify opportunities for improvement such as reducing the number of deliveries and therefore minimising noise and air pollution. (4d/e)
Years of industry experience
Compliancy with BREEAM
The Zone Manager delivery management system works to benefit the environment by executing effective strategies within the construction industry. This way, we can reduce our environmental impact whilst still managing all aspects of project development. Zone Manager’s logistics strategies can help reduce local congestion by managing delivery trucks through the use of consolidation centres and smoothing demand. Reducing the amount of on-site deliveries can also contribute to the reduction of noise pollution. By calculating measurements and material needs, Zone Manager can develop accurate material orders minimising waste and usage. Our delivery management portal produces efficient reports, enabling the opportunity to identify environmental improvements and prospects.
Our fully integrated delivery management software can not only help logistics planning and site management, but it also easily provides clients with evidence for credits within the BREEAM framework.

Complete Compliance with Zone Manager – Construction Logistics Plans (Transport for London)
What are Construction Logistics Plans?
Construction Logistics Plans (CLP’s) have long been a prerequisite for construction projects in London with the aim to minimise the impact of construction logistics on the road network therefore reducing environmental impact, congestion and cost. The Transport for London refer to CLP’s as being critical in providing the “framework for understanding and managing construction vehicle activity.” (Construction Logistics Plan Guidance 2017, p.3)
What do Detailed CLP’s require?
CLP’s form part of planning applications that Local Planning Authorities are responsible for approving. Detailed CLP’s, as set out by The Transport for London, require planned measures from contractors for medium and high impact sites with specific reference to:
• delivery scheduling
• number of vehicle movements to site (by vehicle type/size, time spent on site, origin and destination of vehicles, delivery/collection accuracy compared to schedule)
• community considerations
• vehicle routing and site access
in addition to ensuring that the CLP and planned measures are adhered to on the day-to-day management of the live site.
Compliance with confidence
Do CLP’s require a commitment to a delivery scheduling tool?
The Construction Logistics Plan Guidance, 2017 makes specific reference to how valuable the use of online delivery booking and tracking systems are in being able to provide detailed evidence about the number and type of delivery vehicles, as well as the benefit of accurate reporting on the efficiency and accuracy of deliveries:
“Sites are encouraged to employ a Delivery Management System (DMS). This could be either electronic or paper based. Whatever the format, such systems are vital to the coordination of a site’s booking and delivery process. Delivery management ensures that the flow of vehicles to and from site is controlled ensuring that deliveries are expected to promote safe and efficient use of loading/unloading areas. Delivery Management also provides surety of delivery for critical items, which protects the integrity of the build schedule, and allows for accurate, efficient reporting of delivery activity.”
(Construction Logistics Plan Guidance, 2017)
