What Is Dynamic Routing?

When using route optimization with dynamic routes, work is assigned to workers or vehicles through a computer-based process each day. Any service order or delivery ticket can be assigned to any worker or vehicle in such a way that customer requirements are met, and the resulting set of routes have the lowest overall transportation cost.

Why?

  • The time to plan routes is significantly reduced.
  • The resulting routes are more efficient.
  • You can expect a savings of at least 10 to 30 percent over 90 percent of the time.

Why Use An Artificial Intelligence Assignment Process?

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a process where a decision is made by a computer instead of a human.

Why use an AI process to optimize routes?

  • It has no biases. It can try any possible assignment even if it is not one that the human would try.
  • It learns as it processes. Over a few iterations, possible solutions that are not cost effective are discarded and the process focuses on improving cost effective solutions that have already been found.
  • It is quick. It does in seconds what a human would do in several minutes.

How Do You Use Strategic Movements?

  • Use the Daily Process tool to upload service orders or delivery tickets.
  • Use the artificial intelligence assignment process to make the most efficient assignments.
  • Automatically consider vehicle cube and weight limits.
  • Automatically consider customer time windows.
