Commercial Operations

Products move over complex networks including raw material depots, manufacturing plants, central and regional warehouses and crossdocks until reaching the final retail points. Optiyol helps to optimize transportation along the network covering both the long-haul and last mile transportation by tailor-fit algorithms for your business.

Last-Mile Operations

Some examples of last mile commercial operations include transportation from regional warehouses to shopping malls, retail stores, convenience stores, gas stations, hotels, restaurants and cafes. These stores can be visited based on dynamic orders or based on pre-agreed weekly or monthly frequencies. Optiyol offers  two solutions:

  1. Dynamic route optimization solution for order-based transportation planning:
    • When you receive orders from hundreds of different stores today, you can use Optiyol to create your routes for tomorrow to make these deliveries.
  2. Static route optimization solution for frequency-based transportation planning:
    • You can use this solution to create territories for vehicles and plan weekly regular routes in hot sales operations that operate with weekly frequencies (eg: 2 visits per week) that you target for each shop.
