Why Businesses need Route Optimization?
An in-depth look at how Route Optimization can help different industries. Route Optimization is the process of determining the most cost-effective route from point A to point B. However, it is not equivalent to finding the shortest distance between the two points. The best routes for a business will depend on a lot of different factors – where the customers are located, when they want to be serviced and which driver or vehicle is needed to do the job.
