Vehicle Routing and Scheduling Software: Continually Optimize Deliveries and Allocate Jobs

Vehicle Routing and Scheduling

High shipment volumes with limited resources, cost tradeoffs, and rising customer expectations are just some of the challenges transportation operations leaders face. E2open Vehicle Routing and Scheduling automates the planning, loading, and routing processes, improves the utilization of drivers and vehicles, increases on-time deliveries, and enables collaboration with stakeholders.

Route optimization for first-mile through final-mile operations

High volumes with limited resources

Rising costs, repeated disruptions, and difficulties meeting service levels

Optimizing vehicle routes and schedules to reduce costs, meet service levels, and consider sustainability is complex. With today’s large shipment volumes, cost increases, limited resources, and ongoing supply chain disruptions, you need a flexible plan that takes into account all the variables. Visibility throughout planning and final delivery is essential for understanding potential obstacles and replanning or reassigning jobs to maintain high levels of customer service.
