Material Management and Logistics

Our Material Management and Logistics services help bridge the gap between the design, procurement and construction phases of transmission line projects, providing a smoother transition and, ultimately, reducing wasted time and money by:

  • Assisting with a review of the design to develop a material takeoff list
  • Obtaining quotes from various vendors
  • Reviewing and evaluating bids to help determine which is the best one for your company
  • Receiving, unloading and inventorying
  • Kiting / pre-assembling components
  • Staging / shipping / pole location drop delivery
  • Providing records management and reporting to fit your needs
  • Providing outdoor storage yard(s)

Stranded Asset Recovery

If you’re like most companies, you have a “bone yard” or some area where extra materials get dropped off for long term storage.  While you may have a general idea as to what materials are being stored, odds are there isn’t an accurate accounting of the quantity of these materials in storage.  Our Stranded Asset Recovery service can help with:

  • Identifying and inventorying stranded assets
  • Organizing these assets
  • Providing a current list of usable materials and a map of where they are located in your facility
