Asda is exploring ways to utilise its home shopping delivery fleet to offer a mini backhauling exercise. Options being explored include a video or catalogue returns system. Asda @t Home head of trading Chris Hodgson said: "This is something for future development but we're considering all options to utilise the fleet." Logistics giant Exel, which has developed the store picking system for Asda @t Home, said retailers offering an online shopping service would have to find ways of making the logistics network more efficient as vans were returning to stores empty. Exel business development manager Paul Richardson said another idea on the drawing board was to use delivery vans to order other services from Asda or other companies such as dry cleaning. A recent improvement to Asda @t Home enabled customers wishing to reject unwanted items to get cash credited back to their accounts as soon as their orders arrived, according to Richardson. {{NEWS }}
