Fixed Route Planning
At Menzies Distribution Optrak is used to plan the daily delivery rounds to newsagents and other outlets. It is used around the United Kingdom on a depot by depot basis, assisting manual schedulers in the re-design of delivery sequences. It is also used strategically to test the effects of alternative scenarios and has enabled Menzies to venture into new markets confident that they know what to expect. The move into evening newspaper distribution was supported by an evaluation using Optrak.
"Optrak allows us to review our fixed routes in an accurate and timely fashion. When we are discussing the changes with local transport managers and drivers, it helps to show their current routes displayed against Optrak's detailed roadmap."
