In this article we show you the main symptoms that may indicate that your company is ready to implement a routing system to optimize your company’s deliveries and routes.

You want to reduce delivery times
If you want to reduce delivery times in addition to optimizing the operation as you saw before, you must use a routing system that allows you to identify the optimal routes for your routes, taking into account the capacity of people or vehicles, delivery times or windows. selected by the client, traffic conditions and even the mode of travel (walk, truck, car, public transport).
