Route Optimisation

Routing is a scientific approach to plan deliveries on a run based on quickest/ shortest route to destination. Scheduling allows a set of vehicles and a set of jobs to be optimised into loads thereby minimizing your time & effort and maximizing fleet utilization and customer service.

  • Our Solution
    The TRANSLOGIX : Route Optimizer & Scheduler is a user friendly, intuitive, problem solver that uses complex algorithms to tactfully solve the most challenging routing problems.  
    • The module is tightly integrated with the SAPPHIRE: Transport & Warehouse modules, thus eliminating the need for re-typing characteristics of vehicles & customer orders; as would be required by some systems. 
    • The scheduler accepts, as its input, specific delivery constraints captured in the operations system. These include vehicle availability, start/end locations, type of vehicle , capacity , driver availability, driver start/end time, consignment volume & weight, customer address & requested delivery time window. 
    • Based on the above information, the system constructs the optimised route & assigns orders to vehicles thereby assisting the dispatcher in arriving at the day plan and driver run sheets without much effort.

  • Features
    • Full Integration with Sapphire Operations Modules.
    • Integration into Sapphire Web Service & Workflow Manager. 
    •  Uses genuine mapping topography and not straight line distances to draw routes. 
    •  Determine multiple routes (quickest or shortest delivery routes).  
    •  Management Reporting – The system generates multiple reports namely fleet workload summary, driver workload summary, daily run sheets etc.  
    •  Drag & Drop Jobs – The dispatcher can re-order scheduled runs manually by dragging & dropping jobs into runs & re-scheduling the run.

  • Benefits of Solution  
    • Exceptional Customer Service – On-time delivery, reduced lead-time between order & delivery. 
    •  Better scheduling accommodating delivery time windows. 
    •  Reduce Transport Costs & Improve Profitability.  
    •  Maximize Efficiencies – Reduce or eliminate driver overtime, reduce scheduling time, save time in warehouse by tactful pick-up & loading consignments. 
    •  Better Fleet Management – Savings on miles driven, manage volume and vehicle weight capacities, balance workloads over delivery cycles & optimise fleet size.  
    •  Facilitate Driver Accountability – Transparency of activities , KPI monitoring. 
    •  Integrate with all other business functions.
