Planning

 

Maximize margins and reduce fleet costs with efficient
scheduling and routing

Operating an efficient fleet, and one that meets customer service expectations at the same time, begins with proper planning for pickups, deliveries, and service calls. Incorporating automation solutions at a level that meets your specific fleet requirements – from simple ticket allocation to fleet wide mileage optimization and load balancing – will prove to meet your needs at both levels and improve overall operations and efficiencies.

Fleet Size Reduction

Proper route optimization and planning allows you to more effectively use the most efficient and reliable vehicles in your fleet. By maximizing the usage of your higher quality vehicles, you’re able to retire those older vehicles that require more maintenance – ultimately reducing your overall fleet management costs.

Increased Margins

Using powerful algorithms and street-level routing, you can create daily routes to improve resource utilization. Not only will you gain a deeper understanding of how delivery costs affect the profitability of each customer, but you’ll get better use of existing resources by making more deliveries in fewer miles – drastically improving margins across the board.

Balanced Resource Allocation

Accurate data allows you to evenly balance workloads in order to create equal delivery and sales territories. When dispatchers spend less time configuring routes on the fly and more time assessing scenarios to produce more efficient routes, plans can be created and data collected that allows you to set performance standards resulting in less overtime and improved driver performance.

Improved Demand Planning

Driver and customer historical data allows you to visualize seasonal spikes and regular increases in customer orders. By planning ahead of the increased demand, you’ll be prepared to adjust accordingly. Additionally, the planning functionality allows for simple and quick integration of new customers into existing territories and routes. The impact of adding new customers can be quickly assessed and can help you determine whether your existing fleet is sufficient or if you’re in need of additional vehicles.
