Final Mile

It works for us

Tried and tested

We’ve tried and tested Final Mile from BT with one of the largest field engineering workforces in the UK. Ours.

 

We needed secure storage to make delivering spare parts run like clockwork. It had to be flexible, and it had to complement our existing supply chain.

 

Some engineers were travelling long distances to get spare parts from external locker banks. Others found searching for parts and equipment on site frustrating, especially when they were missing. And that all made the job less efficient.

Helping engineers get on with the job

We trialled Pelipod boxes and they were so successful we ended up rolling them out to over 500 of our sites. Now engineers know exactly when their parts are ready to collect and they don’t have to drive so far for them. They spend far less time looking for deliveries, too.

 

One BT Engineer said "Picking up parts from a Pelipod box at a BT site has saved me over one and a half hours of driving a day."

And it works for EDF Energy, too

It's not just our workforce who are benefitting

EDF Energy are using Final Mile to help them roll out smart meters.

 

Looking  for a way to move away from the old way of engineers picking up meters and equipment from a depot or wholesaler. It wasted time. Now they’re using Final Mile to help their smart meter roll-out run smoothly.

We needed a big player who had the experience and confidence to help us with such a challenging roll-out. The BT solution has worked really well for us. Our engineers can get the equipment they need to get on and do their job.
