Half a million fuel saving for Silentnight

Bed manufacturer Silentnight reckons it has saved 400,000 litres of fuel worth £500,000 and has cut CO2 emissions by over 1,000,000 kilos with BigChange transport and delivery management technology.

Group logistics director Robert Livingstone said: “Delighting our trade and home delivery customers is not just about delivering the best night’s sleep with our market leading products, it’s also about ensuring we lead the market with our delivery service; that’s why we have invested in making the process quick, easy and hassle free. BigChange is key to this.”

The All-in-One system combines back-office delivery planning, a proof-of-delivery app for drivers, defect management and real-time tracking of tractor units and trailers.

“BigChange technology has ticked so many strategic boxes for us; it’s driving tangible savings, transforming customer experience and is a key part of our sustainability drive,” said Livingstone.
