New Zealand Route Planner
Back in 2012, Forbes did an article on the best countries in which to do business. On the heels of the US presidential election, America had fallen to 12th place in the list and interestingly enough, New Zealand climbed to the number one spot. Why? Because while they may be the smallest economy at $162 billion (US dollars), they offer more “personal freedom and investor protection, as well as a lack of red tape and corruption.”
Even though New Zealand is a small country with a ‘small’ economy, there is still a significant amount of deliveries being made each and every day in the island nation. With a low corporate tax and support for entrepreneurship, New Zealand is a great place for a profitable business. However, that doesn’t mean business owners can afford to squander the excess profit on high vehicle repairs, increased fuel costs and high driver turnover costs.
New Zealand’s top exports are dairy, eggs and honey which all need to be delivered to local stores as well as airports and seaports for exporting. Also, a majority of the dairy farms (74%) are in the northern part of the island, with 34% located in Waikato.
What can you do to save transportation costs for your dairy farm? Two words: route planning.
Let’s take a look at Willowbank Farm, one of the highest dairy production farms in the region. In order to get the dairy products from the farm down to the southern part of the country, the fleet must travel quite a distance. Below is a comparison of two route planning programs, Google Maps and MyRouteOnline. Let’s take a look and see the differences.
