Pointer Experience in Logistics and Distribution Sectors

Client A

Pointer manage risk to a large, privately-owned logistics services provider whose portfolio includes road and rail transport, warehousing, and terminal management. We have designed, installed, serviced and maintained systems at warehouse premises in Scotland, and northern and central England for the client. Systems include Video, Access Control, and Intruder.

Client B

Pointer design, install, service and maintain fire, intruder, and video systems to a major international supermarket chain whose UK stores turn over £4.7 billion annually. We have been working on behalf of this client for over seven years and provide systems to stores (90 stores in Scotland and around 70 in the south-east of England) and to large regional distribution centres (RDCs).

In the past year, we have seen a threefold growth in our business with this customer. This shows how providing excellent service over a number of years to our existing customers can reap dividends in time.

Client C

For nearly a decade Pointer worked on behalf of a major multi-brand, multi-site online retailer and distributor in the UK with an annual turnover of over £1.5 billion. We provided security and fire systems to the corporate headquarters, a renovated aircraft hangar in the north of England, as well as the national distribution centre, warehousing and returns centres.

In all, Pointer were contracted to undertake works on over 150 sites for the company. When we initially took over the contract, we were required to prepare and supply an asset register for all sites, many of which had unknown systems. Following successful delivery of this, we were then asked to look after further sites due to good performance. We were also then required to design their security control room and we designed and installed their disaster recovery systems for Video.

Systems installed and maintained included:

  • Video
  • Access Control
  • Intruder
  • Fire Detection and Alarm systems

Additional Case Studies

Pointer also designed and integrated a keyless Access Control system at a distribution centre on behalf of for a leading UK catalogue and online retailer and distributor. We installed a system which utilised Biometric technologies and fingerprint readers. This installation was a part of a regional contract we held with the company for a number of years.

We also provide services and technologies to a significant Scotch whisky company. On their behalf we design, install, maintain and service electronic security and fire systems – including video, intruder and access control – at offices and distribution/ manufacturing warehouse locations and blending and bottling plants.
