Optimised routes are great for saving kilometres but if the new routes are radically different from the routes your drivers are familiar with it can undo the benefits gained. Telogis Schedule uses Master Routes, which uses your existing routes to influence new, optimised routes.
Master Routes work like templates and use advanced heuristics to match better routes with what your drivers are currently using. It’s all about fine tuning routes while maintaining consistency and familiarity for your drivers.
Custom route optimisation
No two businesses are alike, so why use route optimisation that ignores the unique requirements of your business? Telogis Schedule allows you to specify all the factors that influence the best route decisions.
From delivery time windows and frequency to driver and vehicle preferences, Telogis Schedule will use all the detail you provide to work through all the options and give you the most optimised route matched to the unique needs of your business.
Accurate route costing
It’s only when you know the true cost of a route that you can uncover real savings. Telogis Schedule allows you to add route detail such as vehicle running costs and driver pay rates.
It means when you test new scenarios such as adding a customer or relocating a depot, you’ll see exactly the expected costs incurred. Know what you’re committing to before you commit to it. Bid for new business more competitively. Run your business more profitably.
It’s not enough to know your drivers are taking the most efficient routes – you also need to know they’re complying with local bylaws and traffic regulations.
Telogis Schedule helps you plan driver routes and schedules to comply with legislated driving hours and vehicle restrictions based on load or vehicle size.
Capacity planning tools
Telogis Schedule helps you plan ahead to cope with seasonal demand, employee leave or one-off contracts. Balance available resources to meet fluctuations in business – know in advance exactly how many drivers and vehicles you’ll need to meet future orders.
Early planning will help you avoid paying an expensive premium for last-minute contractors or incurring excessive overtime. Improve work-life balance for your team by planning ahead and see driver retention increase.
