Get started in 5 steps!

1. Planning

This stage allows you to either create a new plan, or continue with an existing strategy. This is a chance to look at your orders and vehicles in detail, specifically their individual characteristics. 


2. Orders

Upload the orders you want to plan (or reuse an existing order set) and all of their specific needs such as time windows, the drivers’ skills, order size and whether it’s for pickup or delivery. You can also edit all these orders immediately where needed and use flexible tags to customize your orders.

3. Vehicles

Upload a vehicle set or reuse an existing one and include their features such as capacity limit, maximum time spans, costs and the skills or other limitations of the vehicles. A flexible vehicle tag system gives the user all the necessary freedom.

4. Constraints

Here you can indicate which orders can be served by which vehicles based on the order and vehicle tags. This can be used to show whether an order needs a driver with specific skills for example.

5. Optimise & Adjust

Your routes are being optimised on the fly. You can see how they are improving: every second the kilometers and the costs decrease. You can pause the optimisation, fix an aspect of a route, manually reallocate orders and continue the optimisation again and the results can be exported to Excel.
