TNT transfers Atkins archives

07 March 2008

TNT Archive Services has completed the transfer of more than 116, 452 archive boxes for engineering consultancy, Atkins, to storage at its archiving centres in Thurrock, Essex and Swadlincote, south Derbyshire, completing the first phase of a £multi-million deal over 10 years.

Implementation teams in both Swadlincote and Thurrock facility have been working to cope with the multiple uplift projects from within Atkins. These projects have been a mixture of green field archives from within Atkins offices as well as box transfers from any of the 15 previous suppliers of Atkins.

Phil Greenwood, National Sales Manager, TNT Archive Services, said: “Over the 18-month uplift programme, over 200 vehicle movements were responsible for the transfer and uplift of the project to TNT. Atkins is the largest account within TNT's Thurrock archive centre and is well on course for achieving huge growth which will see the number of boxes increase in 2008 to over 130,000.”

Mike Trotter, Support Manager for Atkins, added: “It has been a tremendous achievement by TNT to transfer the boxes from 17 suppliers down to one. We are now seeing a huge benefit in service and reduction in cost by using TNT in a single supplier service agreement.”

Phil added: “Our relationship is developing and progressing in the right direction. Atkins has already extended the number of services provided by TNT and now uses our sister division - TNT Documents Services - for scanning and have also signed up to our UK and International Express distribution services.”
