maximise boom in e-commerce

Ireland’s leading delivery company believes significant new investment in its IT infrastructure with Zetes Ireland will lead to even greater advances in its ability to handle rising parcel volumes as the volume of goods purchased over the internet continues to rise.

Nightline’s CEO John Tuohy confirmed the thinking behind his company’s growth strategy as he unveiled a further 900,000 euro spend on equipment which will see the firm’s drivers and warehousing staff equipped with state-of-the-art mobile terminals and mobile printers.

Mr Tuohy added that the initiative - which also includes the installation of a more comprehensive wireless network across all of Nightline’s depots – would make the firm’s increasing share of the country’s parcel market even more efficient. The latest spend brings the total sum invested by Nightline on improving its technological capabilities to more than one million euros in less than 12 months.

“Given the sort of volumes which we’re looking at, there is a necessity to make sure that both our drivers and those individuals processing parcels at our network of depots right across Ireland are able to do their jobs as efficiently as they can to deliver the service clients and their customers deserve.

“That means being able to augment our award-winning Smartship system with the very latest equipment. Even more than merely keeping pace with current parcel numbers, we have built capacity into our new arrangements sufficient to cope with projected volumes into the future.”
