Cormar Carpets featured in Motor Transport Magazine

Cormar Carpets were recently featured in March’s edition of Motor Transport – a trade publication which provides comprehensive news of the truck industry, covering all the latest operational, legal and technical issues in the UK haulage, distribution and logistics industry.

Within a two page feature, the magazine spoke to Craig Marshall, the Logistics Manager for Cormar Carpets, about their use of IT within transport and how Cormar have been using ‘Computerised Vehicle Software Systems – CVRS ‘ for the last seven years. Commenting on the system Craig said “It’s led to improvements in service, increased sales and has driven down costs. It’s been a key driver to change throughout the company”.

 

Cormar Carpets are one of UK’s leading Carpet manufacturers supplying to major carpet retailers as well as thousands of independent carpet stores throughout Britain, with an average of 2500-3500 carpet deliveries made each week. And manually planning the delivery routes to carpet retailers can be a time consuming job ,so the software used is cost effective, both in terms of the number of people employed to plan the routes and also provides the company with fuel efficiencies, by saving on distances travelled.

 

Commenting on the implementation Craig said , “ It’s a change process. You’ve got to get people involved. If the drivers challenge the proposed route, we let them sit at the screen and interrogate the system. However we allow flexibility. A routeing and scheduling package will never know the dynamics of a city centre around the school run”
