Laing O’Rourke x DataScope Logistics Framework Announcement

DataScope is delighted to announce that we have signed a national framework agreement with Select Plant Hire for the provision of our Delivery Management System across all the UK projects of their parent company, Laing O’Rourke.

Select and DataScope have worked hard over the last year to develop a cutting-edge Delivery Management System that has already been used on multiple projects, including Everton Stadium and Shepperton Studios.

“Whilst we’ve only just signed the commercial agreement with Select Plant Hire in the UK, we’ve been developing and configuring the system for over 12 months now and couldn’t be more pleased with the result. We think it’s genuinely best-in-class globally for core Delivery Management and a great basis for our wider logistics modules.

We are proud to be live on key Laing O’Rourke projects across the country and are looking forward to the next steps. I can’t thank Nikki and the wider team enough for their support.”

Developing an Industry-Leading Digital Logistics Platform

DataScope worked closely with Nikki Wain, Logistics Controller – Select Plant Hire to develop a delivery management system that includes:

  • A portal through which contractors and suppliers book all site deliveries against a managed schedule that has been set up and controlled by the logistics team
  • The ability for sites to directly configure individual gate availability and schedule to help optimise capacity and minimise disruption
  • Tablets loaded with our DMS app manage access and egress of vehicles from site and record CLOCS compliance
  • A comprehensive set of delivery reports to help drive performance, ensure compliance and monitor emissions

Although in early stages of the partnership, benefits of the system are already apparent:

“DataScope has given us visibility of not only planned bookings, but also the ability to record unplanned activity.

We have found the data incredibly useful. It has allowed us to create project dashboards on volume of bookings, unplanned CLOCS compliance of vehicles at our sites and from this we have improved compliance through the supply chain.”

This agreement is a culmination of many months of hard work by Select Plant Hire and DataScope and we look forward to continuing to support Laing O’Rourke on many more projects over the coming months and years.
