Bed and mattress maker Rest Assured has signed a deal with Nightfreight to consolidate home deliveries across its retail operation.
The contract will be carried out by Nightfreight’s Deliver 2 Home two man service, which will handle home deliveries across the UK for a range of beds and mattresses.
The deal was awarded following a trial earlier this year and will now be rolled out on a regional basis to provide nationwide coverage.
Once fully operational, Rest Assured will offer the delivery service to major UK retailers such as Tesco.
Nightfrieght will distribute products from the Willenhall national hub. From there consignments consignments will enter Nightfreight’s shared-user network made up of more than 50 locations nationwide for onward delivery to customers, with around 1,000 beds and mattresses handled each month.
As part of Rest Assured’s Quick Ship service, all orders will be forwarded electronically to Nightfreight and uploaded into Nightfreight’s proprietary management information system.
This will enable the Deliver 2 Home call centre to contact the consumer to agree an appropriate delivery date.
NightTrak has been specially programmed by Nightfreight to calculate the estimated manufacturing time, so deliveries can be scheduled to coincide with the completion of each order and purchases are received in a fast and efficient manner.
Dean Jackson, logistics manager at Rest Assured, said: “We took the decision to consolidate our home delivery offering through Nightfreight for our retail operation to drive efficiencies and improve customer service.
“We have worked closely with Nightfreight to develop a home delivery solution that meets our precise needs and will ultimately enhance the retail experience of our customers.”
