Call me back

AMCS, the world’s leading supplier of resource management software and on-vehicle technology for the waste and recycling sector, has been selected by Spelthorne Borough Council to undertake a route optimization project across all the Borough’s kerbside collection services.

The project is one of the first to utilize AMCS’ new Route Optimization Consultancy Service, which has been shown to deliver reductions of up to 30% in CO2 emissions, mileage, and driving time.  The ability to increase the productivity of the fleet can also help reduce its size by up to 15% and support future fleet planning.

Commenting on their decision to use AMCS’ Route Optimization Consultancy Service, Jackie Taylor, Head of Streetscene, Spelthorne Borough Council said: “After reviewing the market, we chose to work with AMCS for our route optimization needs as it was the best fit in terms of solution and service to match our requirements.  The service will enable us to balance the workload of all our rounds and future proof the service for new building developments whilst realizing the operational and commercial benefits of improved routing.”

AMCS’ Key Account Manager, Pat Murray, said: “This outsourced service is highly cost-effective and also minimizes the impact on what are often already stretched resources.  Customers simply provide us with their existing route data, which is then run through our Route Optimizer and returned in a pre-agreed format ready for upload back into their operational system.  There is no need to upload any software or undertake any training and the whole project can be completed in just a few days.”

Spelthorne is a local government district and borough in Surrey, England. It contains the towns and villages of Ashford, Laleham, Shepperton, Staines-upon-Thames, Stanwell, and Sunbury-on-Thames and has a population of approximately 100,000 residents.
