Plan, schedule and optimise truck routes to ensure the most efficient use of your fleet

Why use software to plan and optimize fleet use?

Route optimization is a complex challenge: Imagine you want to plan the optimum trip for one driver who is to carry out five orders in one trip. Even in this seemingly simple scenario, 120 different routes are available. With more vehicles and stops as well as other relevant factors like truck attributes, traffic patterns and time restrictions to consider, the routing problem becomes much more complex and challenging to solve. Optimization and scheduling software enables you to find the optimum route more easily and to schedule pickups and deliveries for most optimal fleet use.
