National supply chain specialist Nightfreight helped its customers avoid the costly delays of the 'big freeze', with a 98.86 per cent on-time delivery record during December 2010.

The adverse weather saw Nightfreight introduce 506 more vehicles in response to a surge in demand from B2B customers, who switched deliveries from multiple carrier providers to Nightfreight to ensure consignments were delivered in time for Christmas.

It managed to clear all B2B consignments from its nationwide 'shared user' network of 53 depots, with almost 0.5 million deliveries made before the 25th December 2010.

Managing director of Nightfreight, Peter Louden says customer experience was our top priority during this difficult period.

He said: "This is once again another example of Nightfreight going the extra mile to deliver the highest standards of customer satisfaction for its customer base.

"It was a tremendous team effort from everyone at Nightfreight and a great result for our traffic, sales and customer care teams, who all joined forces to focus on customer delivery."

Darren Cusworth, logistics general manager of Eland Cables, says Nightfreight helped maintain both a high delivery standard and a 'next day' service offering to customers.

He said: "We have used Nightfreight to deliver our parcel freight for over four years. They offer our business excellent customer service and value for money.

"When we did experience some failures in isolated local areas where the weather was extreme and hence made deliveries impossible, Nightfreight worked extremely hard to help us recover our delivery performance to our customers ensuring any delays were kept to a minimum." 

Vivien Gallagher, operations manager of Spark Response, said:
"Nightfreight continued to provide an excellent service throughout the adverse weather conditions, with minimal impact to our delivery promise and meeting customer expectations."
