Route optimisation is a process used to identify the most cost-effective route to visit a series of locations, taking into account cost, time, service levels and vehicle characteristics.
Input the key information that you want the decision to be based upon, for example: visit location, available resources, working hours, dates/time windows or required skills.
An algorithm runs through thousands of scenarios to find the most ‘optimal’solution - the cheapest way to complete all the visits whilst adhering to your business rules.
Typical outputs from a route optimisation are:
Printed journey plan / manifest for drivers to use in the field.
Digital journey plan / manifest accessed via a mobile device.
Calendar view showing visit schedule over multiple days.
Report showing top level statistics for entire fleet.
Breakdown report showing statistics by vehicle by day
Save time / increase productivity
Reduce CO2 emissions
Reduce labour cost
Improve customer service
Reduce fuel usage
