Different Route types Planning

_____

Whether you are dealing with closed or open route types, optimization is an easy task.

Closed Path Routing

Determine the depot location and list all pickup and delivery orders. The optimizer will plan the route in a U-shaped path that takes the vehicle back to the starting depot, with the final stop close to the depot. Combine your pickup and delivery orders and get optimized routes or enhance your pickups and deliveries separately.

Depot-to-Depot Routing

Determine the start and end depot locations and list all pickup and delivery orders. Routes will be planned in a directed path from one to another depot in an optimized path in a matter of seconds.

Open Path Routing

Specify the start depot and let the optimizer plan the next stops and choose the finishing one. This is highly suitable for serving a maximum number of stops within the shortest period of time.

Reverse Open Path Routing

Specify the end depot and the optimizer will start planning from the furthest stop from the depot, generating a route for the vehicle and providing the optimal starting point.

Route Planning with Time Windows

_____

Find the optimal routes within a given time window constraint.

Define customer time windows, specify loading and unloading times, and the optimizer will take these restrictions into account while calculating routes and schedules. The engine will generate an estimated time of arrival.
