In-vehicle telematics and navigation systems are valuable tools when creating a daily route plan. However, they are not capable of balancing multiple routes or optimising delivery order sequences for larger rounds. This occurs during route planning and optimisation, a process that can be further improved using products from RouteSmart Technologies.
RouteSmart for ArcGIS is an on-premises solution designed to support large-scale optimisation projects that balance and redefine routes and improve sequencing. RouteSmart for ArcGIS gives users powerful algorithms and fast editing tools to help speed up the process of improving routes. In addition, Routing as a Service (RaaS) helps national posts and parcel delivery companies create dynamic routes on a daily basis, and supports the last-mile delivery of parcels and e-commerce packages. Results include a reduction in travel times and distance, more time-definite deliveries, and a reduction in daily planning from hours to seconds.
RouteSmart’s route optimisation solutions help tackle issues associated with e-commerce last-mile delivery, parcel and express mail services, and letter carrier round planning as well as unaddressed mail.
Swiss Post and RouteSmart will be co-presenting during this year’s POST-EXPO Conference in Geneva, where they will highlight their joint success in an increasingly competitive delivery market.
