Route Planning and Optimisation

Continuous Optimisation

Unlike batch optimization only solutions, Descartes Route Planner optimisation can run all the time, taking in new orders or changes and optimising them as they occur and constantly looking for new combinations to continue to improve the planning results.

Our engine is always working to:

  • Find & leverage the best solution
  • Route orders as they are taken
  • Reduce or eliminate routing time
  • Dynamically adjust order cut off to ideal time
  • Reduce distance incremental 10-20% over batch
  • Reduce routes incremental 3-5% over batch
  • Reduce driver labor 30- 60 minutes/day
