International Freighting Weekly announce Hellmann Overnight Logistics take up of T@lecom’s Wireless Delivered™
Less Paper for Drivers
Hellmann Overnight Logistics is to equip its UK fleet of 500 drivers with T@lecom’s Wireless Delivered™ Manifest product.
It is being hailed as one of the most advanced mobile data solutions currently available to the transport and logistics industry.
The system enables Hellmann’s drivers to pick up their delivery and collection data for the day and pass back instantaneous consignment status and POD information to Hellmann’s website, where it can be independently accessed by customers.
Wireless Delivered™ includes optional integrated satellite navigation and automatic vehicle location.
The system will gradually replace Hellmann’s paper-based system over the next six months.
Steve Travis, director of Hellmann Overnight Logistics, said: “During extensive tests, Manifest provided a significant improvement both in terms of the efficiency of our drivers and cost savings.”
Manifest, aimed at next-day operators, was launched in June and complements an existing same-day system.
