Case Study - Transportation

Bishopsgate Delivers with 42Gears

Business Overview

Bishopsgate is a UK-based transportation and logistics provider that offers help at every stage of collecting and delivering sensitive goods.

For example, the firm handles data terminals and other extremely delicate objects through secure warehouse storage and careful “final mile delivery.”  

Bishopsgate also handles “reverse logistics” - discarding old materials in safe and environmentally conscious ways. 

Background and Challenges

Bishopsgate gave tablets to its drivers for coordinating their schedules, and gave rugged mobile devices to warehouse workers for efficient barcode scanning. 

This raised some issues that Bishopsgate needed to resolve: 

  1. Keeping track of a large number of devices at once was difficult when they were spread out across many different locations. The firm also needed to track device location for safety and quality assurance purposes.
  2. Setting up and updating devices one-by-one was extremely time-consuming and cumbersome. On top of this, ensuring every device had the same versions of each app installed was a major challenge as well.
