Why is route optimization important?
Putting a commercial vehicle and driver on the road is expensive. Smart fleet owners know that it is important to run them as efficiently as possible by maximizing utilization and minimizing miles.
One of the most effective ways to achieve this is route optimization.
This ebook will introduce you to the concept and theory of route optimization, as well as the benefits you can expect to see by deploying it within your fleet.
What is route optimization?
In commercial applications, distribution companies with large and small fleets may incorporate route planning software into their fleet management systems to optimize route efficiency and boost profits.
The goal is to do more work with fewer resources and in fewer miles.
An ideal route planning solution for companies that move or deliver goods and services will often include GPS tracking capabilities and advanced reporting features. This enables dispatchers to prevent unplanned stops, reduce mileage and plan more fuel-efficient routes.
Such software solutions are offered as a SaaS model, allowing them to be hosted offsite, and updated on the fly without client- side downloads or undue burdens on your business to stay up to date.
