At the core of vehicle routing lies the capacitated vehicle routing problem, meaning we need to deliver goods to different customers at different locations. Each customer needs a certain volume and the trucks have a limited capacity. Due to the complexity of the issue, it can’t be solved optimally and there are, naturally, time restraints.
OptiFlow offers a high value, accurate and lightning fast solution. In close collaboration with KUL, several world records have been broken with OptiFlow: it is faster and more precise than even the best academic algorithms.
OptiFlow breaks world records in distribution planning
This stage allows you to either create a new plan, or continue with an existing strategy. This is a chance to look at your orders and vehicles in detail, specifically their individual characteristics.
Upload the orders you want to plan (or reuse an existing order set) and all of their specific needs such as time windows, the drivers’ skills, order size and whether it’s for pickup or delivery. You can also edit all these orders immediately where needed and use flexible tags to customize your orders.
Upload a vehicle set or reuse an existing one and include their features such as capacity limit, maximum time spans, costs and the skills or other limitations of the vehicles. A flexible vehicle tag system gives the user all the necessary freedom.
Here you can indicate which orders can be served by which vehicles based on the order and vehicle tags. This can be used to show whether an order needs a driver with specific skills for example.
