What is Route Scheduling?

The process of creating highly efficient transportation routes is known as route scheduling. As transportation planning gets more complex it becomes increasingly impossible to conduct this process manually. As customers turn more demanding, fuel and labor costs go up and route scheduling becomes vital. A Route Scheduling Optimizer creates optimal routes and shifts for drivers as it takes into account the following restrictions:

  1. Distance between locations, travel times, type of vehicle, and traffic.
  2. Loading meters, weight, volume, loading meters, pallets, and other complex loading restrictions.
  3. Each vehicle with different capacity and capability for loading and unloading.
  4. Cost structures of various resources must be taken into account when minimizing costs.
  5. Multi-depot scheduling
