Objectives
• Advances in BIM can assist Freight Logistics departments in route
planning
• Current and near future BIM technology interoperability
• Adoption of BIM by Highway Departments
• Cost savings in highway construction realized through Integrated
Project Delivery due to BIM usage
• Visualization of the “road ahead” through 3D and 4D modeling as
a logistic and safety benefit to the trucking industry.
Building information modeling, or BIM, describes 3 dimensional visual computer
models that are capable of retaining data about each object.

Route Selection
Route Selection is critical to planning delivery time
The Traveling Salesman Problem
The TSP is a mathematical problem that describes the best
possible route for the Traveling Salesman to take. Websites
and iPhone apps are created around this phenomena.

for deviation from a
predetermined route,

Infrastructure Issues
American Society of Civil Engineers
This document represents the report card for America’s infrastructure
Report cites the negative effects of traffic congestion due to undersized and
under-maintained roads
These negative effects equate to lost jobs and lost productivity for workers and
added frustration among truckers and the public
More roadwork ahead, more construction delays on trucking routes.
Funding gaps identified could be addressed through road work
cost savings from BIM adoption.
However, BIM’s adoption could also benefit the trucking industry and the
consumer through making visual data available about road construction

BIM’s Interoperability
Examples of computer formats that can receive
data from BIM:
• Spreadsheets
• Database programs
• IFC (Industry Foundation Class) translator
• Visual Basic
• GPS/GIS
• Navisworks

All stakeholders in a project can access data created and
stored in the 3D/4D model.
Queries can include scheduling, quantities, costs and
other parameters that the project team agrees to track.

Civil Works adopt BIM
BIM is not just a technology change but also a process change
Wisconsin Department of
Transportation (WisDOT) has
adopted the 3D Modeling
platform for its highway
construction projects.

Collaboration = Cost Savings
“The BIM approach saved millions of pounds in programme efficiencies and helped to
deliver the project ahead of time and within budget.”

BIM and Highway Construction
Major contractors are adopting BIM for highway construction projects.
Subassemblies were modeled and
then produced from a BIM
program and coordinated with
geospatial technology.

“When the Civil 3D design model is updated, all the related objects and annotation are
updated as well. All the contours, the spot elevations, the building's finished floor elevation, ,
the utility profiles, the pond volumes, and the earthwork volumes -- they are all updated

Summary – The Road Ahead
BIM maturity is reaching a level that Civil engineering is willing to adopt 3D modeling. Government
entities are beginning to understand the ability of BIM to reduce construction time, reduce change
orders and more accurately provide information usable by many.
The 3D and VR abilities of BIM are simple compared to other BIM interoperability goals. Therefore,
visualization and simulation are excellent tools, when combined with time schedule information,
that freight dispatchers and the general public may use to see the virtual “road ahead”.
