Routing as a Service (RaaS)

Enterprise Web Services for Route Optimization

By 2018, more than 50% of deliveries are expected to shift from retail locations to residential due to the surge of e-commerce, making the job of creating efficient routes a greater challenge every day. Route territory planning, workload balancing, and daily delivery sequencing must be as accurate and efficient as possible as residential deliveries skyrocket and routes change more dynamically than ever. Reducing travel distances—even by a small percentage—from every route, every day, can save millions of dollars and give you the edge on your competition.

RouteSmart Routing as a Service™ (RaaS) web service creates better solutions, building geographically compact, logical, and balanced workloads. RouteSmart RaaS™ web service models the unique daily constraints of delivery routing and reflects the way drivers deliver their routes. Other systems are not designed to build geographically compact and efficient routes—they create unbalanced routes that put multiple crews on the same street—leading to inefficiency, frustrated drivers, and wasted time.

How can RaaS make your routes more efficient, save you thousands of miles, and reduce costs?
