istributors today cannot ignore customers’ demands and simply rerun the same fixed routes each day if they want to compete in an increasingly customer-centric world. They need their routes to be flexible in order to meet changing customer requirements. Our real time scheduling software takes into account not only traffic conditions and known roadworks, but also vehicle capacities, live order volumes and delivery time slots. This helps avoid the inefficiencies of fixed routes, reduces excess mileage and as a result can cut operational costs by up to 50%.
When there are narrow time windows and substantial penalties for late deliveries, companies need to respond quickly to real-time events such as traffic delays or breakdowns. FLS VISITOUR reacts immediately to any change and can, through dynamic scheduling, include last minute orders and any return loads before a vehicle's route is completed.
Driver’s mobile application
Drivers can constantly keep in touch with the dispatch office through our mobile app; FLS MOBILE, reporting job status in real-time to the controller and receiving new orders during the day. Real-time positioning information via GPS is constantly reported to the dispatch office and integration with TomTom navigation guides vehicles through traffic faster.
All this helps the scheduling team to make efficient allocation decisions faster.
