Ireland’s largest independent delivery firm Nightline Group is rolling out a new premium fleet of vehicles to handle its growing volume of same-day deliveries. The company is now delivering to homes and to its network of Parcel Motel lockers seven days a week with home deliveries available from early morning until late evening.
‘We have taken on extra drivers and added smaller and more nimble vehicles to our fleet so that customers can have the option of taking delivery of purchases either before they set off for work or when they arrive home in the evening,” said group CEO John Tuohy.
“In an effort to provide even more convenience, we are making weekend deliveries the norm. Previously, they have only been regarded as a way of processing goods bought during the traditional pre-Christmas peak.”
Nightline has acquired 40 Volkswagen Caddy vans to spearhead the premium push.
In November Nightline reported a 25% rise in parcel traffic since the UK voted to leave the European Union, and is now processing more than 1.2 million packages per month for the first time.
