what3words is a logistics and safety online innovation which helps to better deliver Safety Equipment Supplies throughout the UK

As part of an unwavering commitment to operational and sales excellence, PPE Suppliers Ltd offers what3words Free App for Apple and Android devices. Why has this innovation been added to the benefits we offer? Please read on to find out…


Making deliveries has never been made more accurate or hassle-free than using what3words unique, random 3 words for each delivery location.

How does it work?

The globe has been overlaid with a grid consisting of each individual 3mtr square, given a random but unique 3 words for exact locating with faultless accuracy. A useful tool for delivery of goods, as well as supporting emergency services in identifying and responding to accidents and issues when locations are remote, have no address or are difficult to find.

Why is this innovation useful to the supply of safety supplies?

Many of the locations our customers work in are new, changing or complex in terms of scale. There may be many different places for delivery, each order having only the generic site post code which is often restrictive. So, when you consider this we acknowledge the following situations can benefit from the App:

  • new build construction sites yet to establish an address
  • multi-site delivery points such as multiple stores, offices, security, reception, weigh bridge etc
  • road works and construction with changing access or delivery points
  • rail possessions and out of hours emergency works, useful when the clock is ticking…
  • petrochemical facilities with many contractor stores or offices, tenant businesses and planned shutdowns
  • power plants, substations and planned outages with multiple contractor stores and thousands of operatives


What benefits are possible beyond delivery of goods?

Many. Because the Built Environment is teeming with opportunities to deploy this technology quickly, easily and without cost. Imagine an accident occurs in a remote location. One without an address. How will you direct emergency services to the precise spot of the incident? With what3words this can be done in seconds.

What3words is free to emergency services and members of the public. Here’s a North Yorkshire Police article detailing how they find the App useful.

Less dramatic but equalling as unique, say you want to survey a site for construction pricing; need to meet colleagues, or simply grab a cab on your day off! At the ‘touch of a button’ a smart phone makes these tasks easy through this App.
