Now the business to business parcel specialist – which nicknames its distinctive 850 vehicle fleet ‘the mean green parcel machine’ – has contracted Brentwood to supply a different type of fleet at its depots in Lanark, Scotland.
Tufnells bosses contacted us to enquire about purchasing a fleet of two way radios to allow communication between two adjacent facilities on the Caldwellside Industrial Estate, Lanark. The company operates from two large depots on the industrial estate, and wanted a means to improve communication between the two, to save staff having to walk back and forth.
After sending out a team to carry out a free site assessment, we recommended Motorola DP4400 handsets for the job. The DP4400 is a high powered digital model with an impressive coverage range, making it ideal for connecting the two sites and ensuring all staff could stay in touch at all times.
As part of the Motorola MOTOTRBO range, the DP4400 is part of the next generation of handheld digital two way radio hire. With high quality call clarity supported by Intelligent Audio, which adjusts volume and minimises background noise automatically, the DP4400 is ideal for use in busy industrial environments where it is likely to be used around loud machinery.
Other features which make it a good fit for Tufnells’ busy depots include support for a wide range of data services in addition to voice communication. Each handset is Bluetooth ready, meaning it can be connected wirelessly to a Bluetooth earpiece or headset for hands-free use. It also supports text messaging and will link into telephone systems, providing additional flexibility for communicating across two sites.
The DP4400 is also an ideal choice for coordinating large teams across large sites, as is the case at Tufnells’ Lanark depot. It features work order ticket and dispatching modes, allowing supervisors to allocate tasks and provide instructions to individuals remotely. Like most digital models, the DP4400 also supports private calling, so supervisors can again speak directly with individuals anywhere on site without having to broadcast across the entire network.
Finally, the DP4400 includes a number of safety functions particularly relevant to deployment on a large site. The Emergency Button means a network wide alarm can be raised instantly with a single touch, while features like Lone Worker and Man Down offer reassurance for monitoring staff working in hazardous environments, such as loading bays or fixing machinery.
