In construction we provide a range of logistics services such as site establishment, traffic and waste management for major projects.

Using experience across all sectors, Wilson James has developed Fulcrum, a delivery and inventory management system. Fulcrum is designed to support logistics from the planning to installation stage, rather than just the offsite to on-site phase. By tracking inventory separately, users are able to, in real time, see the progress of each inventory item on route to site, or the current location of inventory stored in one of Wilson James’s consolidation centres.

Fulcrum is designed around FORS. Fulcrum checks that the vehicle making the delivery is operated by an accredited supplier. Only suppliers with appropriate accreditation will be permitted to make a delivery to the site. Suppliers that do not meet the minimum site requirements can still be involved via the use of consolidation centres, where one of the Wilson James Gold Standard consolidated delivery vehicles will make the onward delivery on their behalf.
