Third Party Logistics Management

Leave the Logistics to the Experts

For OAMIs working on behalf of MAMs to deliver on the smart meter rollout who do not have warehousing infrastructure in place, we offer a fully compliant stock management and meter distribution service, leaving you to manage the installation rather than the logistics.

We will hold stock that has been assigned to you by a MAM at our secure warehouses in the heart of the UK’s motorway network. When your engineers need meters, kits, and consumables, they order on the go through our apps, ensuring the correct meters and equipment are available on their vans when they’re needed.

Our TOTE service sends these orders as frequently as required to a PUDO location close to an engineer’s home, reducing their travel time and carbon footprint. Removed assets are returned for repatriation or triage using the same TOTE method, ensuring complete visibility over the meter’s life and reducing the likelihood of missing equipment.

We offer this service for serialized meters or for non-serialised consumables and kits that can be sent on for consolidation or redistribution.
