The Magic of Auto-Routing

The Magic of Auto Routing

Imagine you have 1000 parcels to deliver and many trucks at your disposal. Assuming a single truck has a 100-parcel capacity, the number of possible combinations of routes from one address to other could be 6385051192630513023669851114202227428126290069385333177628681.

A human brain cannot practically process these many numbers of possibilities.

FarEye’s revolutionary AUTO ROUTING Feature 

Feed in as many addresses as you can and have a route ready within minutes. FarEye’s internal database of over 1 billion stored addresses improves the address quality by 20-25%. Another layer of intelligence is further applied to convert the text-based addresses to geo-pins on the map for optimal routing, saving a substantial share of the ‘last-mile’ cost that constitutes about 28%-32% of the total logistics costs, thus reducing miles per delivery. It also empowers customers with real-time visibility by providing live tracking links and zero-error ETA. Thus, enhancing their overall buying experience which in turn plays a huge role in ensuring brand loyalty.

But how does all of this happen?

Geo-Coding converts English addresses to mark positions on a map, then Geo-fences mark areas that should not be clubbed when creating routes.

Our business rule engine is configurable for precise details like

  • Total weight capacity
  • Per piece weight limit
  • Time windows
  • Lunch break buffer for drivers
  • Time taken per delivery

Auto Routing then allows smart assignment of jobs to drivers as and when jobs originate. The most optimum route is achieved with - Score based routing. Dynamic Routing is also enabled. A manager can ‘assign to route’ a new pick up or return order on demand; considering the rider’s best efficiency, location proximity and vehicle capacity.

All this and a bunch of other algorithms are at your service!

DID WE MENTION IT’S FAST? See all this magic happen in fractions of a second.
