Planning routes – Trip planner

How long does it take your team to plan your routes? What will happen if this be reduced by 20%?

Think of your day at work tomorrow. You will probably have 10 properties to view, if not more, and you will have to put some sense into planning your route. Otherwise you’ll waste time and money, by not visiting more properties. Maybe planning them in twos is easy and won’t take you the whole day but what happens when you’ll want to combine these couples into one single route?

Will you optimize your route? And what if one minute after you have your route ready, you’ll be getting a phone call from your boss asking to add just one more stop? How long will it take you to add just that? Tomorrow you’ll be coping with the same exact problem or even worse – with 15 new properties. What then?

Here it becomes even more visible, you will need to reduce your cost and increase your efficiency. You will need to save you time and money. You will need to optimize your route.

In this case that you have lots of places to visit that are frequently changed, you are wasting too much time on organizing your travel points and less time in the field. The ease of using a route planner that will find you the best route between those points, will make you wonder how you managed without it. You’ll probably regret not using it earlier but forget about that, just enjoy the fact that you do now.

Check how much time it reduces.

Automatic route planning, that’s the way to move things around here.

You shouldn’t spend too much time on planning your routes, especially if there’s an automatic online solution.

Instead of having your drivers or your transportation planning team work hours on planning delivery routes, use an automatic route planner. This will reduce their time spent on planning routes and deliver better results since this optimization task is better left to computers. Of course you can do it, you and your team have done this for years and it is simple when there are only 10 deliveries to make. But your business has grown so much that the 50 deliveries don’t just add 5 hours to the planning task, they make this operation so much more complicated and honestly you don’t need this headache, especially since the solution is here and affordable. Routing optimization reduces operating costs and improves delivery performance and customer service.

Each of your drivers will receive his itinerary, maps and turn-by-turn driving directions and will know exactly where to go, how to get there and the time to spend in each delivery stop.
Your driver’s arrival time in each stop is predictable and so is his whole route so you can follow and manage your vehicle fleet and avoid any dead time between routes.  Everything becomes known and manageable and questions marks are left behind (or in the parking lot).

Try an automatic route planner.

Do you have Driving Directions?

Do you find yourself looking for a house that “has to be here” but find it on the other side of town?

Your delivery drivers drive in circles to find the right address and they even drive back and forth to the same area in one route, to deliver two separate parcels. That’s a shame for they are spending too much time on the roads. This shouldn’t happen, but it does. Because A. their driving directions if they have any are not accurate enough and B. it’s hard to find the best route between all the deliveries they have.

You can’t blame them – you can help them, and make sure they reduce distances covered and time spent travelling. Plan a route using a Route Planner so that each driver will benefit from a balanced delivery territory and a known daily workload. These two together will keep them happy and will in turn positively influence your customers’ satisfaction.

Optimized Travel – Save Time, Save Fuel, Save Money!

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 ( 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.

“I need a real time-saving route planner?”
We often hear or read this question in various phrasings such as:

  • I need to Plan Pickup Routes, does anyone know a tool that calculates a route when I enter all the street names I have to visit? In the order that will mean less driving/fuel?
  • Is there a program available where we can enter addresses and have them planned in an optimized route?
  • Is there any software where I can enter all my stops, and not just one at a time, and it will plan a route connecting all my stops?
