My Transport Planner enables London home delivery

A provider of fresh produce to London eateries, Classic Fresh Foods, has launched its home delivery operation in London with the adoption of new transport planning software.

Classic Fresh Foods supplies fresh produce to chefs in hotels, restaurants and gastropubs across London. However, with most of its customers closing their premises during lockdown, the company switched to providing home deliveries.

The company says with the adoption of transport planning software, My Transport Planner, the company is now delivering to around 200 addresses per day. My Transport Planner is a pay-as-you go web-based transport planning too designed for commercial vehicles operators of all sizes.

Peter Banfalvi, general manager at Classic Fresh Foods, said: “This is a completely new venture for us, we’ve never done home delivery before. My Transport Planner has played a significant role in making it a success for us.

“Previously, we used a basic route planner, but it was very limited in terms of its features and capabilities, I couldn’t download or export the job list. Now I can give the orders for each van to the picking team, whereas before the drivers had to find each order in the warehouse.

"It took up to three hours to load each van, whereas it is now under an hour per van, so it is saving us a huge amount of time. The goods get loaded into the vans in the correct order, according to the manifest. I love it, it makes my life so much easier. If there remains a demand for home deliverly after lockdown ends, then we will continue to offer it.”

My Transport Planner is offering delivery companies a 30-day free trial of its software, for further information click here.
