4 easy steps to manage and automate your deliveries with Locus’ routing software

  1. Create batch

    With the help of RESTful APIs, Locus’ last-mile delivery software automatically pushes orders to dispatch based on customer preferred delivery slots, special vehicle requirements, delivery instructions, and many other real-life constraints.

  2. Geocode

    Decode even the most poorly written addresses into accurate coordinates anywhere in the world with Locus’s geocoding engine that uses natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning (ML).

  3. Configure

    With Locus’ delivery route planning software, allocate vehicles and drivers around holistic principles such as fairness by number of tasks, distance traveled, rider breaks, fuel stops, and operating hours.

  4. Plan

    With the Locus delivery routing software, plan day-to-day dispatch operations efficiently with street-level routing and intelligent task allocation. Utilize its multi-stop route planning capabilities to maximize productivity, SLA adherence, and customer satisfaction while minimizing transit distance, duration, and cost.

Frequently Asked Questions

A routing software (or a route optimization software) is an optimization tool that assists and enables route planning operations. This essentially plans the number and type of vehicles required to deliver a certain number of orders, and the path to be taken by each vehicle in its journey.

Ability to accept operational dynamism Flexibility in accepting complex business constraints Efficiency in configuring the business constraints Additionally, it's not just the most optimal route but the most optimal operationally executable route that matters.

A route with multiple stops may be mapped using several parameters, depending on customer constraints and fleet capability. These parameters include customer time slots, vehicle capacities, traffic conditions, etc. The outcome depends on what the delivery operation chooses to prioritize.

Basic routing techniques involve solving one or more of the following problems, depending upon the business use case: Traveling salesman problem, Vehicle Routing Problem (constraints: capacity, resources, drops and pickups, time window), Knapsacking Problem.

Route planning algorithms can be categorized into- Optimal Algorithms Heuristic Algorithms Hybrid Algorithms

Fuel consumption is a factor of distance traveled. Locus finds the most optimal route between a given set of points; hence the delta distance between static and locus plans can provide a percentage indicator of fuel consumption savings. Additionally, Locus can take into account several factors like vehicle aging, mileage, and fixed and variable costs and come up with proxy metrics to approximate fuel consumption.

Yes. Using REST APIs, we can integrate your existing telematics solution and order management system into the LOTR app.

LOTR app supports both iOS and Android

No. Currently, the LOTR app helps track the riders, capture proof of delivery, and organize the pickup for various tasks. Over speeding-based alerts are a part of the Locus product roadmap.

Yes. Locus offers several products that cater to various use cases, including, but not limited to, sales beat optimization, on-demand delivery, and logistics optimization.

Locus can optimize multiple routes simultaneously, and there is no upper cap on the number of routes you can optimize each month. The number of sites/hubs or customer touch points that can be optimized will be covered under your billing plan.

All our data is stored on the cloud, powered by AWS servers, with industry-grade security. Locus is an ISO 27001: 2013 and ISO 27701: 2019 certified company. These are international standards for information security and data privacy.

Yes. Locus gives you the option to assign the operating hours for drivers. You can also factor in their breaks.

Locus delivery route planner is designed to handle every major constraint that any logistics operation may demand. We also have an extraordinary Solutions Team that has been able to model 100% of all our customer's organizational and operational constraints. We are also capable of handling a variety of route restrictions by default, including, but not limited to, area- based constraints, vehicle constraints, customer constraints and SKU-based constraints.

Locus complies with the international standards for the protection of customer data. We are in the process of being 100% GDPR compliant.

Any industry that relies on logistics services to fulfill its product or service promises will benefit from the Locus routing system.

Locus’ routing software focuses on KPIs like Distance reduction Travel time reduction Reduced SLA breaches Efficient Resource Management and many more It also handles client-specific or region-specific constraints like route restrictions, vehicle restrictions, and time slots.

To suggest the most efficient way for executing the deliveries or pickups, a route optimization software accepts some essential details. Daily-planning related data: Order details, location details, fleet details and volumetric data Operational constraints data: Traffic, time windows, skills, resources and more Pre-configuring these details help route optimization software to generate cost-effective routes.

Route Scheduling is the process of assigning time slots for deliveries as well as synchronizing it with the availability of both delivery vehicles and customers. This could be a single-day or a multi-day affair. In some systems, route scheduling is interchangeably used for route generation and planning.

Route optimization or route planning is an essential process in logistics systems, primarily due to the high competition and narrowing margins in the global market. Additionally, the dynamic nature of demand with the customer becoming a part of the supply chain has made it imperative for supply chain systems to be adaptive, transparent, and more efficient.

Yes, we have a custom-made application called 'Locus On the Road' for delivery drivers. This is available on both Android and iOS platforms.

Our algorithm solves the Traveling Salesman Problem for a route, which results in the best possible optimization of both cost and distance.

Although Locus does not directly help with driver training, our mobile app enables drivers to organize their delivery schedules and keeps them updated on potential breaches.

Locus Geocodes is currently not available as a stand-alone product.

No. Our LOTR app stores the data offline and updates it when your driver gets an internet connection.

No, but we do offer simulations of our potential customer's logistics operations through the Locus Route Planner.

No. Our payment structure is flexible and affordable for all types of businesses.

Yes. This is a paid service. The mode of communication is SMS.

Yes, Locus has a Proprietary Geocoding engine that can accurately capture geo-coordinates and helps you map addresses even if they're wrong/incomplete, with high precision.

Locus can consider weight, volume, and other entities like product dimensions to generate optimal route plans.

We have clients across five continents using our products.

Yes. You can also reallocate tasks in the routes.

Locus is primarily a logistics optimization engine. Many Transportation Management System (TMS) features like master file management, cost contract management, location, and SKU databases are already present in Locus, and we will be incorporating other functionalities soon. Locus aims to be a fully functional TMS in the near future.
