Overview by using GPS
Each vehicle is equipped with a GPS that sends information about each vehicles position on the route, as well as data on the delivery time. In addition, via the mobile computer it is possible to send additional data such as image documentation, trunk room temperatures and lent returnable items.
The transport manager can analyze the day’s routes by an automated report, containing the fleet data, and see if there is anything that can be optimized. Data regarding compliance with time windows, delivered and received goods, photographs of damaged deliveries, departures, speed, number of driving hours and much more can be reported.
Automatic route planning
Routing is automatic optimization of the day’s stops. The objective is to carry out deliveries in the fewest vehicles and in the least mileage possibly. The system will quickly pay itself back by saving time on manual planning and by distributing goods as optimal as possible.
Tecsys TMS Route Planning develops a plan for distributing deliveries in the fewest possible vehicles. It also takes in to account the packing of goods, so that they are packed in the correct order, making sure the last delivery is placed in the back of the cargo space.
Route Planning takes into account the drivers working hours, delivery deadlines and demands for special staff skills and equipment. Customer requirements for specific drivers or vehicles can also be handled as part of the planning.
The output of the planning is a detailed plan for each vehicle. The plan includes the stops in an optimal order, expected arrival and departure for each stop, and it will give a summary of mileage and driving time.
The plan can be viewed on the employee’s mobile computer and combined with the other features of Tecsys TMS, for example navigation to the next stop on the delivery list.
Benefits of transport planning
Your company can expect a better utilization of vehicles, shorter running time or even a reduction in the number of vehicles. Faster planning of the routes while using fewer resources which will provide environmental savings in terms of reduced fuel consumption / CO2 emissions.
