Optrak4 for Cash in Transit has been designed to meet the demands of the Cash in Transit sector catering for multi-drop trips of cash and high-value items.
Cash in Transit operations face the common challenges of a delivery and collection service with additional problems related to the value and sensitivity of the cargo:
Cash in Transit is typified by a high geographical density of deliveries and collections, often to high street locations with road access restrictions or time-based congestion. These variable factors add extra complexity to planning.
Managing the value of deliveries and collections required careful optimisation due to the total order value on each vehicle being capped. This factor increases the complexity of manual routing as planners have to factor ongoing value into building mixed collections and deliveries.
Access to customer sites often adheres to certain rules/restrictions such as drivers being unable to cross the road when attending the customer site or coming in at a time when the store is fully manned.
Optrak4 for Cash in Transit is customisable, both in the data set and map layers, to reflect specific customer site issues and delivery parameters, such as limited access to points at times of day and delivery restrictions involving couriers moving from point A to B.
Optrak4 for Cash in Transit is designed to use total contract/order valuable as a key constraint, rather than the normal weight/size constraints found in off-the-shelf vehicle routing solutions.
Further constraints based on operational requirements can also be set if specified by the company.
Optrak4 uses a variety of data sources, including historical road speeds, into its optimisiation model. As a result, it is more capable of mapping and estimating times for delivery in urban areas than competing products.
