Route Planning

Use Excel® to Calculate the Best Route Schedules Quickly and Easily

Route planning uses master data for locations, fleets, and customers to optimize transport schedules. It also allows you to change standard routes individually, if that reduces transport costs.

You can generate route schedules in Excel and then see the exact routes on a map.

 

Features:

  • Assigns transport orders to routes and optimizes the sequence of stops.
  • Optimizes fleet constellation for each depot.
  • Accommodates vehicle property constraints (e.g., weight, volumes, loading meters).
  • Limits maximum route lengths and times.
  • Automatically re-optimizes stop sequences when a stop has been added or canceled.
  • Calculates toll costs based on true number of highway kilometers driven.
  • Visualizes route plans quickly and easily on maps.
