Everyone knows that we waste time and fuel on the road.
Everyone clearly understands that this loss is quickly translated into wasted money.
But does anyone really do something to prevent this loss? To at least minimize it?
The Texas Transportation Institute (http://tti.tamu.edu/) shares a few Highlights from their research that illustrate the effects of the nation’s traffic problems:
- The overall cost (based on wasted fuel and lost productivity) reached $87.2 billion in 2007 – more than $750 for every U.S. traveler.
- The total amount of wasted fuel topped 2.8 billion gallons – three weeks’ worth of gas for every traveler.
- The amount of wasted time totaled 4.2 billion hours – nearly one full work week (or vacation week) for every traveler.
Reading these numbers makes you think, right?! Are your drivers spending so much time on the roads? Do your sales representatives waste too much “Windshield” time? Are you experiencing too much ware and tare? Does it really have to be like this?
A simple Route Planner can make these numbers look better, with your help of course. How?
By doing a simple thing – optimizing your time and distance on the road.
How we do that is not so simple, but the results are absolutely amazing.
Individuals, as well businesses that have multi destination routes, whether for deliveries, pickups, service, sales rep. etc. – all have the same problem. Just like you, they are all looking to reduce cost and increase efficiency in multi route operations.
