CEMEX, its subsidiary CEMEX Ventures, and Taronga Ventures have announced their investment in Voyage Control, a UK-based startup that offers a digital platform to facilitate construction logistics and on-site coordination.

Supply chain disruptions are forecasted to have a significant impact on profitability over the next decade. Voyage Control’s end-to-end solution can reduce delays, waste, and cost overruns caused by inefficiencies in the construction materials delivery process through optimised scheduling of deliveries and an overview of all transactions in real-time.

The platform also supports industry-wide CO2 reduction efforts by measuring the logistics-induced carbon emissions, from the materials’ origins to its final transportation. This valuable data will allow for more environmentally conscious decision making.

Voyage Control is in use in over 200 customer sites, coordinating over 100 000 players and scheduling more than 6 million deliveries. Voyage Control's customer base includes industry leaders and general contracting firms in North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia Pacific. Large multinationals have become the startup's core customers thanks to the easy-to-scale 'land-and-expand' approach since its platform was launched in 2013.

“The investment from CEMEX Ventures aims to integrate Voyage Control with CEMEX’s digital assets, allowing us to provide a better and more complete service to our clients. We can now gather more insights, continue promoting operational efficiency, sustainable reporting and enhance our health & safety criteria to reduce risks,” said Gonzalo Galindo, Head of CEMEX Ventures. CEMEX is a pioneer in the digitalisation of the building materials industry, having launched its end-to-and digital platform, CEMEX Go, in 2017.

“The built environment contributes 39% of all global emissions, and developers are looking for digital solutions to enhance the transparency of the supply chain, especially concerning the embodied carbon within a building or building operations. Voyage Control provides this transparency across the value chain and enables data-driven decision-making to improve the sustainability of the built environment,” said Avi Naidu, Managing Director at Taronga Ventures. While founded in the UK, Voyage Control has operations in the US, Australia, Canada, and Singapore. The investment by CEMEX and Taronga Ventures will help further strengthen Voyage Control’s global network, expand operations in Asia, and establish its presence in the Middle East and Latin America, where there is a strong demand for their products and services.

Voyage Control was included in the named Top 50 Contech Startups ranking in 2019 and declared one of the winners of the Construction Startup Competition in 2020.
