We’ve been able to optimise the number of trucks, we’ve reduced mileage and fuel costs, and we’ve provided more sustainable earnings for the independent contractors who do our deliveries, reinforcing their commitment to our business. Everybody wins.
Routing and Scheduling Solutions
Optimising routing and scheduling will enable you to
- Do more work with the same fleet size
- Save fuel by driving fewer miles
- Delay buying another vehicle
- Offer tighter time windows with greater certainty
- Reduce double shifting
- Cut planning time
- Reduce empty running
- See where overnight stops maybe more efficient than coming back to depot
- Identify network planning efficiencies – perhaps opening or closing a depot
Mapmechanics has 30 years of experience in helping optimise logistics operations and we know that no two operations are the same. That’s why we provide easily configurable software that enables you to add your own special codes to force the loads to match vehicles in a specific way that suits your business. Maybe you need to deliver all the clean items before making any pick ups, or perhaps you need to deliver certain items using a driver that is a trained fitter, or maybe the first call must always be to a parts box.
We always include implementation assistance to make sure your routing and scheduling integrates with your other in-house systems and that it set up to create routes that meet the needs of your particular business.
