Outsource Route Optimization Services

Manually finding the perfect route for your agents is possible at the beginning, but as your business grows, frequently altering the routes & pitstops, adding or deleting new customers can prove to be quite a challenge. More so, as traditional route planning methods do not account for real-time events that may occur at the penultimate moment, demanding agents to alter their routes on the go.

The rising cost of fuel around the world has necessitated that logistics and distribution companies increase their efficiency so as to reduce overall costs. While most logistics companies have found a way to reduce transport packing costs, warehousing costs, administration costs, etc., it is the transportation costs which remain a challenge. 30% of all logistics costs are spent on last mile deliveries, and therefore optimizing the same requires a lot of effort. Traditional methods of route planning are not easy to scale-up, and do not account for real-time events that can crop up at any time.

Route optimization helps businesses to bypass the issues caused due to inefficient route planning, and in streamlining their delivery and dispatch management systems for better gains. As your business grows, perfecting the route plan for your logistics division soon turns from an interesting affair to a meticulous one. With the help of Outsource2india's dynamic route optimization services, you can easily plan multiple routes and a variety of different schedules with hundreds of stops within seconds. Our route optimization services make use of cloud-connected software to help you automate delivery routes and manage your resource capacity efficiently, reducing costs by as much as 20%.

Our Dynamic Route Optimization Services

At O2I, we work with cutting-edge technologies and use the latest predictive analytics for dynamic route re-sequencing and optimization. Our delivery route automation and big data driven solutions are ideal for both medium and large-scale businesses and can help you analyze large amounts of mapping data in a few seconds. Outsourcing route optimization services to O2I can not only help you reduce costs, but also help you achieve better customer satisfaction. Our services include -

  1. Advanced Machine Learning-based Automated Route Planning

    Our end-to-end solutions for route planning are derived from an optimization engine which is constantly powered by genetic algorithms and advanced machine learning techniques. A team of experts with experience in big data technologies, data science and data engineering ensure that all alternate transportation methods, related costs, and customer delivery windows are taken into consideration before planning a route. Once the routes are planned as per your requirements, our Automated Route Optimization system keeps re-optimizing routes in response to your input, the input received from your drivers/vehicles, as well as from the feedback received from your customers.

  2. Robust Constraints Engine for Better Customization

    Cognitive computing and deep learning form the basis of our robust constraint engine which can easily identify the exact number of transportation assets available at any particular time and where to domicile these assets. This is based on -

    • Static constraints and dynamic near real-time constraints
    • Domain-specific pre-packaged constraint types
    • User-specified priority and applicability of constraints - e.g., constraint applies to an individual delivery point, or to all routes based upon directions specified by the client
  3. Late Freight Swapping

    Our route optimization system allows you to add or delete one or more delivery points at the last moment, even after your vehicles are out for delivery.

  4. Dynamic Route Sequencing and En-route Optimization

    Predictive traffic route optimization and recurring route optimization feature allows you to dynamically pick the most ideal delivery route, and assign or re-assign delivery routes quickly. This will reduce the delivery time, increase number of deliveries per day, and save fuel, cost and time.

  5. Dynamic Directed Fueling Optimization

    Delaying deliveries to go all the way back home to re-fuel not only leads to wastage of fuel, time, and money, but also leads to disgruntled customers. Optimizing fueling dynamically allows your vehicles to find the most affordable location in the vicinity to replenish fuel or gas.

  6. Customizable Reporting Services

    Our delivery route automation services help to optimize the cost associated with your freight carriers, number of visits, distance travelled, and the fleet size allowing you to achieve a measurable increase in your ROI. Customizable reports are generated as and when required allowing you to manage your agents in real time by setting estimated service, pick up and drop off quantities, etc.

    The Dynamic Route Optimization Workflow at O2I

    Dynamic Route Optimization Workflow

    Over the years, we have managed to develop a dedicated workflow in order to deliver high-quality end results which keep your requirements in mind. Our process includes the following steps -

    1. Collection of Data - We collect information regarding your existing route systems in place from multiple sources such as from the latitude-longitude information, telemetry data, existing fleet data, and other non-vehicular data such as operator an cargo data, ERP, SFA, etc.
    2. Internal ARRO Data Representation - A schema-less data repository is created based on the information collected. This enables quick access to various reporting features that our clients may require
    3. Groups Computation - Once the data has been collected and identified, we aggregate delivery points based on their geographic proximity. Thereafter several groups are created based on client-defined constraints such as time-based ones, fleet-based constraints, location-based constraints, etc.
    4. Computation of Optimal Route - Our team helps to create the optimal route for your fleet which integrates with your existing systems, while allowing for 3rd party map displays on phones, tablets, etc. for easy access. This optimized route takes various real-time factors in consideration, and once again, based on constraints, delivers the ideal optimized route in a very short time.

    Throughout the entire process, we follow all stages of testing that a software solution should undergo before it is deployed in a production environment. At each and every stage, we ensure that all identified stakeholders are alerted when system reports a confidence level lower than benchmark we are trying to achieve, ensuring measures are set in place so as to prevent it from happening again. These alerts can be sent via email or other real-time notifications to all the personnel involved.
