A roads delivery giant from the Peterborough area is harnessing digital technology in a bid to improve its services.
PC Howard, of Stamford Road, King’s Cliffe, is linked in to a new Digital Information Hub that has been developed by Palletways Group, which is Europe’s largest network for the express delivery of palletised freight.
The firm is one of 100 plus independent transport providers that make up the Palletways distribution network.
The digital hub allows constant checks to be made on the location and delivery of consignments ordered by customers.
Andrew Howard, principal at PC Howard, said: “The system will enable us the see the whole of our business in real time so we know where every pallet is every minute of every day.
“It will help us make significant efficiency gains in our depot and on the road.
Mr Howard added: “Importantly, it will enable us to enhance the customer experience by providing them with total “visibility” of their consignments throughout the supply chain.”
