Do you know how much the transportation costs you? Do you have an idea what this figure means? Have you answered no to any of these questions? We are ready to answer them for you. We will analyze your data (about timing, unloading, transportation fleet, etc.) and show you where your business gets sluggish, what can be improved, and we will re-plan the daily routes.
We use Roadnet Transportation Suite for this. Roadnet Transportation Suite is a five-module package which covers all needs regarding your distribution strategy. As for the modules, you can imagine them as a dispatching application which inspects whether a vehicle can manage to reach a particular place in time or an information center which helps to refine your plans. The excellent functioning of this package has proven true in North America where it is one of the most used transportation planning tools.
Whether you have five vans or a large fleet of vehicles, it pays off to think through whether they are driving on optimal routes, from the right places at the right time. We can reduce your overall mileage (and sometimes even some vehicles). In case your fleet is getting old, we can calculate when and how you should renew it. You can save time and money, get a complete overview of your transportation efficiency and, in the saved time, you can plan routes for seasonal fluctuations.
