National supply chain specialist Nightfreight is reinforcing its sector expertise in the building trade after successfully showcasing its low carbon initiatives at Ecobuild 2011.
Nightfreight introduced hundreds of visitors to the environmental and cost saving benefits of its latest telematics and intelligent routing technology during the three-day show at ExCel, London.
The third party logistics provider guaranteed a reduction in fuel consumption, lower mileage and a smarter delivery solution overall thanks to its advanced in-cab technology, which monitors driving behaviour and enables the driver to work smarter.
Cementing its success, the company also highlighted the low carbon advantages of consolidating individual deliveries onto one single vehicle rather than operating individual dedicated delivery vehicles.
Steve Yates, Nightfreight regional director says the company is well equipped to cope with large and difficult to handle products.
He said: "Nightfreight is at the forefront of the logistics industry in identifying new and innovative ways to reduce the environmental impact of our carbon footprint under our nationwide infrastructure.
"Our customers already rely on us to provide them with the most cost effective delivery solutions to suit their requirements, and now they can expect us to go one step further in reducing the environmental impact of their deliveries.
"As the only logistics company to exhibit at Ecobuild, it provided us with the unique platform we required to launch our ongoing commitment to the future development of greener delivery solutions."
Nightfreight delivers a wide range of building products on behalf of its clients including fencing, lighting and electrical and decking.
Established in 1984, Nightfreight offers four main delivery channels as either stand alone services or multi configurable options including single parcel express and non-standard freight, two-man shared user home delivery nationwide, a specialist warehousing, handling and installation ‘white glove’ service and dedicated logistics.
