Fortec Nexus

Fortec has rolled out a new IT system to its shareholder members following a multi-million pound investment, which it said had already propelled sister network Pall-Ex ahead of the market.

It said that Nexus, built by Pall-Ex Group’s IT team, would play a large part in helping the pallet network achieve its strategic ambitions in the years to come.

Fortec said members now have greater control of their freight and allows them to communicate better than ever.

Member Brocklehurst Transport said it was using the IT system every day to book, plan, route and track their freight: “We have been really impressed by Nexus and how it has streamlined so much of our day-to-day operation,” said Dave Webster, Brocklehurst Transport MD.

“The ability to view all of our pallets around the country on one screen, create watch lists and alerts, as well as the invoicing facility built into Nexus, makes it a tool we can use to complete every aspect of our Fortec network jobs.”
