Nightfreight selects NX Framework software

Delivery network Nightfreight has chosen DA Systems’ NX framework software for its home delivery service.

The NX Framework has been rolled out to all 27 depots and 80 vehicle crews of the Deliver2home service. 

The system automates collection and delivery processes with barcode scanning via handheld data devices carried by each driver. 

Electronic proof of delivery is available to customers, while photo capture from an Intermec CN50 provides evidence of collection, failed delivery or package rejection. 

The CN50 in-cab device also allows staff to keep up to date with booking and delivery orders, and updates via a web portal means all stages of collection and delivery are visible.

Paul Tyson, director of Deliver2home, said: “This will allow us to offer three hour delivery windows. Measurable financial savings are expected, not only through instant POD capture, but also via the automatic collection and delivery barcode verification.”
