The Business Need

With COVID-19 and the growing need for home delivery services in the last few months, creating new delivery processes and maximizing the efficiency of existing ones has become more important than ever.

This need covers multiple industries, including:

  • Food home delivery services
  • Freight companies
  • Mail and package carriers
  • Utility/contractor home services

 

The Solution

ONE Tech provides state-of-the-art vehicle routing solutions that are fueled by deep learning algorithms. Given a number of drivers and pickup/delivery locations, ONE Tech’s solution will provide driver routes and schedules to visit multiple locations, enabling the driver or technician to more efficiently deliver the required goods or service. The solution is highly customizable and includes the following features:

  • Ability to automatically schedule pickups and deliveries
  • Ability to assign a weight to the cargo to be picked up and delivered, as well as a maximum capacity for each vehicle
  • Customizable work scheduling—setting different start/end workdays and breaks for drivers
  • Ability to specify time windows to visit pickup and delivery locations
  • Controls that will limit the maximum distance traveled by each vehicle
  • Ability to set an approximate service time that drivers will spend at each location
  • Ability to assign specific vehicles to specific pickups and deliveries

 
Each company can decide how many of these features they want to use depending on its size and specific needs. It can be as simple as finding the optimal route for a pizza delivery driver from the restaurant to a few delivery locations in the neighborhood. It can also be as complex as a freight company with multiple trucks and different pickup/delivery depots throughout the country, where taking into consideration vehicle capacity, cargo weight, and delivery time windows is crucial.
 

The Impact

By using ONE Tech’s Vehicle Routing solution, companies will see immediate benefits, including:

  • Saving time and resources for the company
  • Increasing customer satisfaction with more accurate pickup and delivery times
  • Reduce fuel cost and vehicle usage, therefore increasing vehicle longevity
  • Reducing environmental impact
  • Optimizing delivery team efficiency
  • Reducing overall process complexity
