Capabilities - Features:
OnRoute takes into account several key elements when optimizing your pickup and deliveries. It assigns both pickup and delivery orders to your fleet, managing the complexity of your multi-depot operations while minimizing the total drivetime. A non-exhaustive list of such elements is given below:
- Specific capacity requirements for your fleet.
- Specific technical requirements that match an order to (a part of) your fleet or operators.
- Time windows and working hour restrictions.
- Already communicated deadlines/appointments for your customers.
- Geographically dispersed customers and depots.
- Combining full truckload and less-than-truckload orders.
The challenge is to reduce the cost per delivery. By trying to minimize the total driving distance of your fleet, OnRoute automatically groups pickups and dropoffs at your locations, making better use of your fleet and reducing your cost per delivery.
Save on the time spent planning
Producing pickup and delivery schedules for a fleet, servicing all customers and employing the full potential of multiple depots. Optimization cuts back the time spent planning drastically.
Implementing OnRoute in your software solution will free up operational planners to focus on the most important matters.
Manage the complexity of multi-depot delivery runs
Scheduling is complex to manage: your customers need to balance both pickups and deliveries not only at the customer’s sites but also at their own depots. Optimization manages this complexity for them; ensuring key items are collected before deliveries, sufficient deliveries are made before orders are picked up, or vehicles are cleaned before picking up specific products.
Reduce operational expenses
By optimizing pickup and delivery schedules, your customers can reduce operational costs by an average of 34%. Help them use their resources in the most efficient way: maximize the customers served and minimize overall costs. As a result, they can get more work done with fewer resources, save on fuel costs and reduce carbon emissions.
