Cost efficiency

Typical gains of up to 30% vs standard solutions brought by unlocking the full potential of smart tour planning within a cost-centered approach leveraging cutting-edge discrete mathematical algorithms.

Flexibility

Highly customizable framework allows a precise tuning of the model for a perfect use case specific fit.

Speed

Accelerate tour planning processes through extremely short computation times enabled by efficient mathematical optimization methods used to tackle the high computational complexity.

Reliability

Highly robust and realistic tour planning by considering time-of-day dependent traffic speed.

CASE STUDY

Diminishing carbon footprint for road freight

CASE STUDY

Impact of optimal tour starting times

Greenplan is a cloud-based routing service for last mile, road freight and field service management

Greenplan creates the best tour plan for any specific case in particular by focusing on the holistic planning scope, optimizing larger instances instead of separate sub-instances with reduced complexity.

Dynamic tour planning without compromises

Plan best routes for each day adapting to the changing delivery scope. No need to reduce complexity up front by using or sub-districts

Time-of-day dependent speed profiles

Using high-resolution true traffic flow history provides tours that are exceptionally robust and appear natural to the drivers

Optimal tour starting times

Determine the best starting time for each tour as an integral part of every tour planning process

Smart route planning benefits the entire organization

In today’s rapidly changing, complex and data-driven world, it is key that your organization is adaptive and continuously optimized. Smart route planning plays an increasingly important role both in day-to-day operations and in long-term strategy.

Strategic perspective

Greenplan enables managers to make the right strategic decisions

  • Modeling and evaluation of different strategic options (e.g. location planning, subcontractor management)
  • Broad possibilities of scenario calculations (e.g. CO2 efficiency, fleet planning)
