How does a warehouse manager plan the most optimal routes for delivering 5000 shipments in a day with 500 bike riders to various parts of the city? The task of assigning specific packets and most optimal route suggestions to each rider is a very complex task, especially as the volume of shipments or geographic region expands. Imagine the same daily life challenge in the pure mathematical or statistical notations, there will be ‘n’ number of workforce moving
The moment a shipment at the warehouse is ready for delivery, it needs to be assigned to a rider who covers the specific pin code area. The rider is expected to deliver parcels pertaining to his marked area following an optimum route.
However, with perpetual demand for shorter turnaround time and higher shipment volumes, it is imperative that logistics companies utilize their capacity in a more effective and efficient manner. FarEye’s vehicle routing software can help them achieve by providing dynamic fleet management.
This means that the information such as vehicle type and capacity utilization, number of shipments that have to be delivered in a specific area, the available number of riders etc. is taken into considerations while planning the optimal route plans, simultaneously. It also takes into consideration the preferred time-slots and allows personalization of deliveries while routing the rider to the customer location.
The interactive route map embedded in the vehicle routing software enables the manager as well as the customer to track their shipment deliveries on a real-time basis with almost a zero-error estimated time of arrival. In case of any delivery failures, the manager gets SMS and real-time notifications/alerts along with the reason for the failed attempts
By having right software in place, the manager can also create different geofences that act as a guide for auto-routing his fleet. For example, Geofencing refers to the areas that should not be clubbed when creating routes. However, these are not static fences. The manager has rights to combine multiple geofences dynamically to optimize volume and load during a particular time period.
FarEye’s routing systems are backed by artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms that have the ability to self-learn the ‘correct’ address just from delivery addresses, success
