British Lead Mills is using Roadnet to plan its UK wide delivery and collection routes.
As part of the world’s largest lead recycling group, the company is keen to boost its routing and scheduling.
British Lead Mills collects lead from scrap collection points or from demolition sites as well as delivering finished products after scrap materials have been refined into new lead sheeting.
The company has been recycling scrap lead since 1932 and the new routing and scheduling software is likely to be an important part of its future.
Thanks to Roadnet’s routing and scheduling technology, British Leads Mills’ fleet of vehicles can be routed more effectively from its four depots. This will cut both mileage and CO2 emissions – and reduce the amount of time spent on planning routes.
It’s not only the bottom line that will benefit from the added routing and scheduling muscle provided through Roadnet. The software will allow the company to meet all green requirements to monitor and track the movement of lead – from the collection of scrap materials to the delivery of finished goods to customers.
With the use of Roadnet delivered by the team at TRU, it looks as if British Lead Mills will continue to lead the way in its industry.
