PFF PACKAGING'S new transport management system is improving deliveries to customers as well as reducing its carbon footprint.
The new transport management system – delivered by 3T Logistics and Technology Group – is a web-based software that enables the business to plan its logistics more efficiently for the benefit of customers. It enables the consolidation of loads to similar locations, reducing vehicle journeys and therefore carbon emissions.
Lee Wilkinson, group supply chain manager (pictured, left, with Dan Mahan, transport planner) at PFF, said: “We work with a pool of haulers and the software enables us to select the best carriers for locations where we can do multiple drop deliveries.
“By making sure we have filled the vehicles, we are reducing costs and the environmental impact as the amount of carbon per pallet delivered is reduced.
“The new system also tracks delivery lorries to ensure they arrive on time and manages proof of delivery. This means we are improving service to customers who are increasingly seeking suppliers with reduced carbon usage.”
PFF will use the data drawn from the system to set targets and monitor its carbon emissions.
Rob Hutton, sales and marketing director at 3T Logistics and Technology Group, said: “We see the introduction of our TMS solution as a critical step in PFF’s digital transformation. Our solution will automate and optimise PFF’s transport operations, giving them full control of transport management and bringing greater levels of transparency and visibility.
“The collaboration between 3T and PFF showcases two fast-growing British businesses with a global outlook that are using technology to drive efficiency and innovation. We look forward to working with PFF and providing the logistics solutions they need to scale their business and further accelerate growth.
