Automated route building and fleet dispatch system was developed for a US delivery company to improve customer service and reduce operational expenses. The software automatically grabs data from ERP system, split orders between delivery teams and creates routes.
Initially we had to deal with several algorithms to solve a Travelling Salesman Problem - a core part of the system. However there was no existing solution for our specific problem so the team created a custom algorithm. Currently this is the only system that supports multiple dispatch and delivery points in one route. It also analyzes many other parameters such as truck capacity, team schedule, customer’s floor, traffic and more.
We developed an Automated Route Building Tool to provide delivery optimization and planning.
Now the application helps to solve many optimization problems and build the best routes among destinations and to calculate time and distance quickly.
