With so many sites at our finger tips we can always find what you are looking for, no matter how rare. But more than that, it means we are always on your doorstep which enables us to deliver same day!

Federation Of Communication Services

FCS is the not-for-profit industry association for companies which deliver professional voice and data communications solutions to business and public sector customers in the UK.  Part of the FCS responsibilities include being guardians of FCS 1362, the code of practice for installation of equipment into vehicles

 

FCS1362 provides a working reference document for every element of installation procedure. A fact which is 'nice to have' for members of the public, but of crucial importance for vehicle professionals who need to demonstrate due diligence in procurement best practice, and a duty of care to their drivers and employees.  

Which is why FCS1362 forms the core of the National Association of Police Fleet Managers' best practice guidance to blue-light fleet garages.  And why FCS 1362 is specified for all radio-frequency vehicle modifications in the Government Procurement Service's current RM956 public sector procurement framework.

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.
