we've been reviwing our fleet size recently and have been using transit. I didn't know these tools were so good. managed to reduce the fleet by 20%. it is a route sceduling software. Excellent
 
How large is your fleet and are you running it regularly or was this a one off, I need to do a daily delivery route plan for about 50 trucks and need to find some software quick.

I have used this type of software before. THere ae lots on the maret that basically do the same thing. 10-15% reduction in fleet size is not un common. You did well at 20%. Must have been a very inefficient fleet :)

Re: route scheduling

There are lots of different route scheduling software products around. You need to be careful about which one to select though. Whilst most have similar functionality, the real difference is in how they geo code the drop locations. Some are more accurate than others and some do not not operate wel in certain countries. In the UK for example, many wil geo code based on post codes, which in the UK narrow a location down to three buildings. In other countries a post code might represent a town!

Re: route scheduling

What packages are people using well and what have people had issues with?

We use a customised DB package that is pretty old.... can we brain storm a list of packages splitting them into big, medium and small fleet sizes?

Is anyone using the SAP solution?

Re: route scheduling

Lani,

Not sure if they really differ between fleet size, but those I have used and seen used would include:

Transit
Trucks
Roadshow
Paragon
LogiX

A friend of mine is in a large cement company that uses SAP and they use the SAP TMS. They reckon it is quite good.
