Transport management company 3T Logistics has announced that it is renewing its contract with JCB, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of construction equipment. The contract will run until 2018.
 

3T will be working with the company’s service division providing transport management systems for JCB in France, Czech Republic and the USA, as well as in the UK.

As part of the new contract, 3T will be delivering a full TMS system, as well as automated barcode labelling, track and trace at part level and a customer facing business intelligence platform (BIP).

BIP is a web based platform which is designed to help manage a range of transport processes and large amounts of data for business discovery and reporting. 3T has also recently implemented their latest standalone product DOCK, a bay management loading application to manage collections and deliveries.

The contract involves processing JCB’s transport activity across the company’s network of 17 regional warehouse, including the Staffordshire based World Parts Centre (WPC) which ships over 30,000 different lines every week.

“We have established a great rapport with JCB over the years that we have worked with them and are delighted to be continuing to help them manage what is obviously a complex transport operation,” said Tim Fawkes, MD of 3T Logistics.

“JCB Service prides itself on offering a fast turnaround and aims to fulfil 95 percent availability of all urgent parts within 24 hours, meaning that speed and customer service are two key deliverables.”
