Crown Castle, a provider of shared wireless infrastructure, has awarded its materials and warehouse management activities for small cell and fiber deployments to KMM, a provider of logistics and network services to the US communications industry, the company said.
KMM is currently providing service to Crown Castle in nine major markets and will be responsible for managing field network support inventory for all such new deployment projects moving forward.
The two companies initially started a business relationship in August 2015, after Crown Castle engaged KMM to conduct a six-month materials management trial that spanned four markets. Supported by eRIMS, a web-based inventory management tool, KMM delivered a turnkey solution that included material movement and consolidation as well as inventory and warehouse management services.
KMM couples core logistics services with field expertise to deliver integrated solutions spanning full network lifecycles. KMM is a certified woman-owned business enterprise.
Crown Castle provides wireless carriers with infrastructure with approximately 40,000 towers and 17,000 miles of fiber supporting small cells.
