BARNOLDSWICK, Lancashire UK: August 02, 2018. Bed manufacturer Silentnight is a finalist in this year’s UK Logistics Awards after implementing a transport app from Big Change that has saved the company 400,000 litres of fuel and cut CO2 emissions by 1,000 tonnes in the past five years.

Silentnight 1Silentnight manufactures over 500,000 beds a year and sells to consumers via a network of independent stores and furniture retailers throughout the country.

The BigChange platform combines back office delivery planning, a proof of delivery app for drivers, defect management and real time tracking with paperless delivery that complements the company’s sustainability agenda. This now includes manufacturing a mattress from 150 plastic bottles to prevent 105 million of them from polluting oceans or being sent to landfill every year.

Commenting on the Big Change app, Silentnight Operations director Robert Livingstone said the aim was to not only provide the best night’s sleep for trade and home delivery customers but also ensure they benefit from the best distribution service.

“The BigChange technology has ticked so many boxes for us; it’s driving tangible savings, transforming customer service and is a key part of our sustainability drive,” he added.

Silentnight is part of Silentnight Group, the UK’s largest manufacturer of branded beds for the home that also owns Rest Assured, Layezee, Sealy and the Pocket Spring Bed Company.
