What is Route Planning Software?

Route planning is the sequencing of delivery routes and mileage calculations between stops. Some fleets plan routes manually, but as competitive pressures multiply and cost-effective cloud-based solutions become more compelling, many are considering software-based alternatives, including simple route optimization, dynamic route planning, or fully autonomous dispatch and routing.

 In addition to planning, route optimization software enables teams to evaluate various scenarios to understand the impact of different fleet management strategies, e.g., reducing vehicles or drivers, or changing vehicle configuration.
