An international supply chain firm has created a new storage technology to simplify deliveries to engineers on building sites.

The UK-based company ByBox launched Stockonnet, a technological solution that combines a smartphone app and Bluetooth-enabled boxes that can receive, store and dispense parts to engineers.

The boxes use long-life lithium batteries rather than conventional power sources, which allow companies to use them in a wide range of locations.

On large, multi-building worksites, the boxes can act as convenient drop off location. Any authorised user can deliver parts into one of the boxes.

The makers say the new solution reduces the amount of time spent by couriers tracking down the correct location or engineer.

‘Over our many years in the industry, we have found that a key frustration for businesses with large sites has been the efficient swap out of critical parts on a daily basis,’ said Stuart Miller, CEO and co-founder of ByBox.

‘Not only do parts get lost, but the time it takes for both engineer and courier to meet is costing businesses dearly.’
