Our experience so far

Nigel Molloy, Bathstore Head of Logistics says; “LogiX has proven to be an easy to use and scalable software package, which has coped well with the challenges of the changing shape of our storage and delivery network. Our use of LogiX has allowed a significant reduction in vehicles used and kilometres travelled, while we maintained high levels of customer service. These efficiencies have led to substantial savings in labour, equipment, and fuel spend, which has been reinvested to ensure that our customers receive the best possible deals and service.”
