Commonly asked questions about fleet routing
What is fleet route optimisation?
Fleet route optimisation is a process for achieving maximum productivity by making routes as efficient as possible, saving on travel time and miles driven. This fleet routing and dispatch process can be simplified using fleet route management software, which enables you to plan and optimise hundreds of routes in minutes. Some solutions now enable dispatchers to allocate new jobs to drivers while they are out on the road, highlighting the most suitable candidates from a mileage and travel time perspective and bearing in mind parameters such as driving time status.
