Joining the Construction Consolidation Centre (BLC)

Why has a Construction Consolidation Centre (BLC) been established?

The urban development area of Stockholm Royal Seaport (Norra Djurgårdsstaden, NDS) is an environmental profile area with the ambition of being a model of sustainable urban planning. This means that the City of Stockholm and all other stakeholders involved in developing the district are working toward sustainable and resource-efficient construction practices.

BLC coordinates the transport and the materials to be used in the construction and is responsible for the recycling of waste and residual materials. Through BLC, we can reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, reduce waste, improve the work environment and economise on resources. It is a contribution to creating a sustainable future. BLC provides the opportunity for good planning, which also creates the conditions needed to increase value-added time and reduce implementation costs.

Materials handling by BLC

How does the entry of vehicles into the area work?

An appointment (called a time slot) must be made in order to be able to enter the construction site with a delivery. This is done by authorised personnel in your company via the deliveryplanning tool STC. When they book a time slot, a code is generated and will only be available during the period of the time slot. The driver will need this code to be able to open the gates. The same code is then used to get out from the construction site.

 A coordination/escort fee is charged for each delivery/passage to construction site. This applies to all inbound transport; service vans, private cars or freight transport. 

 

How do deliveries to my construction site work?

The amount of materials determines if it's possible for a direct delivery or if you will need to deliver to the CCC(BLC) for a co-coordinated delivery. Following criteria will need to be met for a direct delivery. The material amount will need to be over 50% regarding the volume and weight. If you have a lower percentage you will need to deliver to the CCC (BLC).

Keep in mind, that the cost of passing the gate to the construction area is higher than the cost of delivering the material to the CCC(BLC) for a co-coordinated delivery.

 

A. Direct delivery

Direct delivery of the material generally takes place when there are large, bulky materials, e.g. for the frame. The Stockholm Royal Seaport is subject to environmental zone rules, which includes environmental standards for vehicles. 

For direct transport the filling rate needs to exceed 50% by the weight or volume. For a lower fill rate the transport needs to be co-distributed via BLC.

When booking a direct delivery, unloading resource must also be booked through BLC or provided by the customer. The unloading resource should be able to unload goods within the specified area for the contractor. The customer is responsible and must be able to verify that the correct unloading resource is booked.

 

B. Collective distribution

Loading capacity less than 50% on a truck goes for collective distribution via BLC. The fill rate refers to load capacity weight or volume. For loading capacity greater than 75% on a truck should go as direct transport unless storage is expected. Some types of material are exempted from this rule due to restrictions at BLC.

Lead times for collective distribution as below. This requires accessibility and unloading location for the service provider. Deviations may occur.

a. Delivery BLC at. 06:30 - 09:30 day 0 delivery before. 15 day 0

b. Delivery BLC at. 09:30 - 13:00 day 0 delivery before. 08 day 1

c. Delivery BLC after 4 p.m. 13:00 day 0 delivery before. 11:30 day 1

Upon entry into the BLC, a handling fee is payable. Price according to price list.

To ensure that BLC's resources are available and to be able to handle goods cost-effectively, all deliveries arriving at BLC must be announced on the day. Unannounced deliveries are unloaded at BLC if they have time and are prioritized lower than announced deliveries.

 

C. Needs-based delivery with short-term storage

BLC offers storage of materials indoors and outdoors. BLC decides whether goods should be stored indoors or outdoors. Short-term storage is free calendar days 1-5. On calendar day 6  and onwards, a differentiated storage cost will be charged to the customer according to the price list. At calendar day 35, the material will be transitioned to be characterized as long-term storage, which can cause stored material to be moved to external storage for space reasons. This is done in consultation with the customer. Storage cost according to current price list.

 

 

Do I book a time slot for deliveries to BLC and does it cost anything?

To ensure that BLC's resources are available and to be able to handle goods cost-effectively, all deliveries arriving at BLC must be announced on the day. Unannounced deliveries are unloaded on BLC as time goes on but prioritized lower than announced deliveries.

Delivery entering to BLC is charged by a service fee . Price according to price list.

 

What happens if I miss my time slot?

If you miss your time slot you will need to contact your customer/contractor who have booked the delivery. They can book a new time slot or if possible extend the booking. 

 

Entry to the construction area without booking a time slot?

It is not allowed for a vehicle to enter through the gates without a booked time slot.

If a vehicle enters without a time slot being booked before it arrives, the customer will be charged a fee. On repeated occasions by the same customer, BLC has the right to direct the customer towards BLC for unloading without the possibility of a delivery on site. Unloading and co-distribution takes place according to the price list.

Current fees for improper entry can be found in the price list at www.ndslogistik.se/sv/fakta-och-priser.

 

Can I book a time slot for multiple shipments?

In the delivery planning tool you can book several passages on the same booking. E.g. if you are casting concrete, you can order 10 cement trucks in the same time slot. For each entry, an entry is deducted from the time slot. You only pay for the entries that take place.

 

Can I drive my service van or private car into the area?

Yes, you can drive in and unload but you have to book a time slot. There will be an escort fee upon entry. 

Access to the building site is made by booking a time-slot. No line-up of craft car / transport car outside unloading area. Note that parking on streets or on public areas is illegal.

 

Does short-term storage at BLC cost anything?

BLC offers storage of materials indoors and outdoors. BLC decides whether goods should be stored indoors or outdoors. Short-term storage is free calendar days 1-5. On calendar day 6 onwards, a differentiated storage cost will be charged to the customer according to price list.

If you want to store materials in the workplace, this is done within the property eg. in garage, on different floors or in the yard.

 

Who is responsible for the goods when they are in short- and long-term storage?

BLC conducts visual inspections of incoming deliveries for storage or co-distribution. BLC is responsible for the goods until they are delivered to the construction site and the delivery is approved. BLC documents any damage and informs the customer immediately if the goods are damaged. The customer, however, owns the goods during storage so he needs to insure them against fire, theft, flood, etc.

 

Can I get help with increased (detailed) incoming inspections at BLC?

Yes, if you would like help with a detailed incoming inspection, BLC can check that your delivery is correct against the packing list. BLC scans and sends the packing slip with information about any split shipments to the responsible person in your company.

Normal inbound inspections include a comparison against the consignment note to ensure that the right number of packages/pallets has arrived and that the goods are undamaged. If you would like the shipment entered into storage at item level, please contact BLC before the goods arrive.

 

What do I do if my goods are damaged?

Document the damages with photos and contact BLC directly. You are responsible for booking return transport, but BLC provides storage and loading when materials need to be returned. Contact BLC for more information.

 

Can I get help with unloading, lifting and carrying my goods in?
