Designing A Delivery Organization For The Digital Age

Face it: pen and paper route planning is obsolete for a delivery organization in the digital age. This is because planning routes is complicated. There is more to route planning than just figuring out which roads your drivers need to take to get to your customers. You also need to account for traffic, construction, weather, and many other factors.

The pen and paper method just won’t do. Planning routes with pen and paper or the manual way is a recipe for disaster. It will show you how to get from Point A to Point B, but it will not help you plan for everything that is involved with real world driving scenarios. How can looking at a static map help you with other factors that are always changing and unpredictable?

You might end up sending your driver directly into a traffic jam, or you might make them improvise if you forget that a certain road is closed for construction. Delaying your drivers is sure to upset your customers. It is also bound to frustrate your drivers as well.

It is time for you to adopt route optimization software. Route optimization software guarantees that every route you give your drivers is the most efficient route possible. This makes your customers satisfied and your drivers happy.

After you plug in the addresses you need to visit, the software does the hard work for you. It will take all the necessary variables into account and give you a 100% accurate and optimized route in less than 30 seconds.

So throw out that paper map and use a digital route planning solution instead. Route optimization software allows you to reduce your fuel expenses and make your employees more productive, which improves customer satisfaction.
