AES

AES is a leading provider of waste management and recycling services in Ireland. The collection routes used to be planned by the drivers, resulting in inefficient routes, missed bins, and dissatisfied customers. AES decided to buy AMCS' Route Planner. Transport optimization is performed with Route Planner, resulting in spectacular cost savings and highly improved customer service. AES is committed to the provision of cost-effective, efficient, and environmentally friendly waste management solutions to all its customers.

The key to success is the delivery of our service

Since AES has invested in the technology from AMCS, they’ve been able to achieve the highest RepTrak scoring ever within the company for a bin company in Ireland. That is why technology works in our industry. If you don’t invest in technology you don’t know what you’re doing wrong. By having technology, we can anticipate and prevent service issues and when these issues occur, we can resolve them with one action.

Challenge

AES practically never created new master plans before. The routes were not written down but simply planned by the drivers, based on local knowledge. Consequently, the routes were somewhat inefficient and very difficult to execute for temporary drivers, who often missed bins.

Challenge

The daily challenge is to be able to meet the expectations of our customers

In Ireland, local regional authorities are not responsible for waste management, and the Irish customers are free to change provider if they are not content with the service. Ciaran Brady, Head of Resource Recovery AES, “It is imperative for us at AES to be able to meet and exceed the service expectations of our customers,
and previously we were unfortunately not always able to do so."

Darren Sadler, AES Transport & Logistics Manager; "AES practically never created new master plans before. The routes were not written down but simply planned by the drivers, based on local knowledge. Consequently, the routes were somewhat inefficient and very difficult to execute for temporary drivers, who often missed bins."

Solution

Optimizing service days was crucial in order to achieve the best results, and, learning from our mistakes, we, therefore, changed our communication strategy and improved the acceptance of service day changes remarkably.

Solution

The part technology plays

AES decided to implement Route Optimization from AMCS and started with mater routes. Darren Sadler explains: “Optimising service days was crucial in order to achieve the best results, and, learning from our mistakes, we, therefore, changed our communication strategy and improved the acceptance of service day changes remarkably.”

We handle recyclable, organic, and general waste, keeping approx. 165 vehicles busy with 400-500 collections per route on average. By having technology and investing in the AMCS platform we now can meet the full range of our customer's service expectations.

Results

The system has improved our profitability and customer service greatly. If you don’t invest in technology you don’t know what you’re doing wrong. By having technology, we can anticipate and prevent service issues and when these issues occur, we can resolve them with one action.
