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.

Long-Haul Operations

Long haul operations generally cover transportation from a central distribution center to regional warehouses with large trucks. The planning challenge is to consolidate orders to different routes with minimal cost while respecting delivery time commitments, capacities and vehicle type restrictions. A plan determines how to allocate orders to each transportation mode (FTL, LTL, Direct/Crossdock etc.) and routes for FTL orders. Optiyol offers optimization solutions both for carriers and shippers to optimize long haul transportation planning.

What can you achieve with Optiyol?

Automate and optimize route planning

Optiyol algorithms will automatically create the best routes, taking into account order locations, order sizes, fleet options, all restrictions, preferences, road distances, traffic and costs.

Dynamic fleet selection and order allocation

Optiyol suggests just enough number of vehicles with the right features to meet pickup and delivery requests on-time. Orders are allocated to vehicles to minimize both fleet and mileage costs.

Plan based on the real prices paid

Optiyol takes into account the actual pricing table instead of just the mileage cost. Therefore, price-based optimization saves your operation 2-3% more than the traditional optimization methods.

Efficient use of resources by planning ahead of time

Long-haul commitments generally have a few days of flexibility. Optiyol let’s you plan current and future orders together and captures opportunities on similar regions for higher utilization of vehicles.

Respect vehicle-type restrictions
Respect vehicle-type restrictions

Only certain types of vehicles are allowed to carry some orders (e.g. chemicals) or some customer locations may have upper limits on the size of vehicles. Optiyol suggests the right type of vehicle for each route.

Respect time-windows for customers and drivers
Respect time-windows for customers and drivers

Earliest and latest delivery or pickup times for each customer are taken into account to increase on-time service levels. Preferred working hours for each driver and vehicle are considered in order allocation.

Automate LTL/FTL mode selection

Optiyol determines which orders should be transported with Less-than-Truckload option. For the remaining orders (FTL) Optiyol picks which orders to be consolidated in each route.

Track orders and vehicles to provide visibility

Optiyol Driver App (Android & iOS) helps drivers to smoothly follow planned routes and update order statuses to track which orders got completed, are on-the-way or got cancelled.

Respect vehicle capacities
Respect vehicle capacities

You can define multiple capacity limits such as weight, volume, box, pallet or maximum number of stops for each vehicle and automate the allocation of orders within capacity limits.

Respect business preferences
Respect business preferences

Restrict certain assignments of customer orders to different types of vehicles. Restrict certain pairs of order types to be carried on the same route. Restrict certain pairs of locations to be visited in the same route.
