Choosing the Right Routing Strategy for Your Fleet
The transportation landscape is evolving rapidly, and fleet operations are facing unprecedented challenges. Booming e-commerce, heightened customer expectations, and increasing traffic are forcing fleets to rethink their approach. By embracing cutting-edge routing strategies, fleets can achieve new levels of efficiency, agility, and speed, outperforming the competition and surpassing customer expectations.
There are three core routing strategies to consider:
- Static Routing: Traditional delivery fleets have relied on static routes, planned semiannually or annually around fixed customer demand.
- Dynamic Routing: A strategy that creates fresh route sequences daily, considering factors like new orders, driver availability, time windows, traffic, and weather.
- Static + Dynamic Hybrid Routing: In this strategy, certain delivery stops are fixed and planned in advance, similar to static routing, while other stops are subject to dynamic optimization on the day of delivery.
