Challenge

The distribution of orders had traditionally been handled at each depot. Two planners at each depot were responsible for assigning the jobs to the drivers, and for providing some basic planning of routes. This manual process had to take each of the below points into account, for each driver’s daily plan:

  • Prioritization of orders: Goods are delivered 6 days a week (not on Fridays)
  • Timing of drop-offs and installations: In many cases, the delivery is combined with the installation of goods
  • Delivery conditions: Some orders require 2 drivers and strict time windows /time slots
  • Realistic timings: Orders are received continuously, and sometimes many days before the delivery day. A qualified delivery time needs to be agreed upon during order-taking, and so the order taker has to consider the cost of delivery, other nearby deliveries, etc. With various areas to consider for each order, they felt it was time to employ a solution that automates these processes, to enable them to be more efficient and streamline their procedures.
