Increase transport efficiency and utilization of fleets
Many companies work with so-called “milk routes”. In these cases, drivers often have their regular daily or weekly routes and know the area. The customer base and order placement of these companies is relatively stable; schedules and routes have proven to be efficient and effective in everyday operations and rarely change.
Contrary to expectations, milk routes, too, can be optimized with routing and scheduling software. Why? Because of external circumstances (i.e. construction), customers and requirements (i.e. changes in ramp hours and delivery windows) and your own priorities and requirements (i.e. number of vehicles) may have changed since the routes were first introduced. Therefore, it’s crucial to regularly evaluate existing routes and adapt them to changes.
Simply transfer your existing routes into PTV Route Optimiser via easy-to-use interfaces. The software analyses the routes and evaluates potential for improvement, such as assigning a customer to a different driver, adding an additional stop-over at a depot, or simply changing the sequence of deliveries to increase efficiency.
