Supplier Drop Boxes

Construction is an increasingly environmentally-conscious industry, especially when it comes to carbon emissions. Construction companies which operate in multiple counties often require drivers to make lengthy journeys to deliver supplies, which contributes to the company’s carbon footprint.

See the examples below for how one company addressed this:

  • Set up supplier drop boxes throughout the region for suppliers to drop off small parts orders for property maintenance when delivery vehicles are passing.
  • Operatives are notified of the delivery on a tablet and collection is made to suit the planned works.

This system saves on unnecessary journeys and helps the company reduce its carbon footprint.
