  • Provision of 30 drivers operating from three sites; Strood Kent, Oldbury West Midlands and Warrington Cheshire

  • On-site implementation of Ryder team to plan production and ensure maximum supply chain efficiency

  • Production of an optimised distribution plan to efficiently deliver Sleepeezee's sales and factory production requirements utilising Ortec route planning and Microlise telematics.

THE RESULTS

  • 70% saving on transportation costs of each back load of raw materials

  • Delivery of over 200,000 mattresses and beds per annum across 10,000 deliveries
