The Challenge:

This logistics company were taking too long to deliver allocated parcels resulting in an expensive operation and long delivery time.

Our Solution:

We developed a route optimisation algorithm which communicated to delivery van drivers via mobile devices. A state of the art genetic algorithm utilises evolutionary concepts to uncover the optimal route sequence from lists of addresses providing drivers with real time solution to the most distance efficient route sequence.

The Benefits:

Our algorithm made an initial saving of 17% to their overall distance travelled resulting in considerable savings on fuel costs and an improved delivery service allowing a greater quantity of parcels to be delivered within a drivers working hours.
