The 3 time-saving steps of route planning

September 17, 2018     ShareThis

We all know what it’s like to be on the road, accidentally take a wrong turn, and find yourself utterly lost. But, when you really think about it, are we ever truly lost? With countless ways to reach pretty much anywhere, it doesn’t really matter which way you happen upon your destination – as long as you arrive at the intended time.

This is all well and good for the private citizen, however the same can’t be said for courier companies, and businesses on-the-road. When it comes to getting lost, not having a clear delivery plan and plotted route, could greatly affect a company’s bottom line.

Every business wants to grow and serve more customers, but if they are wasting time and other resources by aimlessly driving around town, the only thing that will be growing is the list of expenses.

With high competition and narrowing delivery windows in the market, it’s crucial to plan and determine what you are spending time on. If you find yourself manually planning multiple routes, you’ll find that there are numerous factors that need to be taken into consideration. Such as the number of stops, the location, the delivery window, calculating times between stops, possible interruptions and so on. Accounting for all these factors is ridiculously time-consuming and meticulous. You’ll find yourself spending countless hours on planning a route that surely won’t be efficient or cost-effective – where you could have been putting that time to better use.

With MyRouteOnline, we can create a cost-effective route in mere minutes by minimizing distance or time. This optimized route will help you reduce vehicle operation, fuel, labor, and maintenance costs drastically, while ensuring you achieve high-performance levels. Our route planner, helps you reach all your destinations – whether you’re planning a local delivery route, a multi-stop cross-country haul, or any other multi-destination trip, and appease all the customers. And, this can be done in three easy steps:

Step One: Pick your stops. This step is entirely up to you. Based on your day’s deliveries and/or responsibilities, use our program to map up to 350 addresses. Simply upload your address list from an Excel spreadsheet or manually enter each location into our program.

Step Two: Watch the magic happen. Based on your specifications, we will plot a route that will save you time, fuel, and money. Unlike planning on Google Maps, you will receive the best route for your multiple destinations – that can be changed if you come across any cancellations.

Step Three: Follow the route. With our time-sensitive itinerary, clear mapping, and turn-by-turn driving directions, staying on track has never been easier. Simply export your delivery route to GPS or mobile and receive a live route with all your plotted destinations.

After the successful completion of Step Three, the only task remaining is to assign the route to your driver. So, forget about manual planning and plot simpler routes with MyRouteOnline. Integrated with Google Maps, our directions are easy-to-follow and will get you to all your intended destinations with time to spare. Avoid the backtracking, and save on fuel – it’ll do wonders for the environment and your company’s budget.
