"Rusu Consulting provided an assessment of various haulage routes for limestone delivery from a quarry to the mine site, about 45 km in highly variable traffic conditions, in North Sumatera (Indonesia). The assessment included traffic monitoring, productivity estimates, fleet selection, and consideration of electrical over diesel prime movers and suppliers.

I’d recommend Mirel Rusu to anybody looking to understand and estimate logistics costs for bulk minerals.This could be for new projects or for a company looking to optimise existing logistics.With logistics costs for bulk minerals accounting for up to 80% of the total project capital and operating costs, having the technical insight of an industry specialist is invaluable."
