Are you feeling the pinch of labor shortages and rising gas prices?  These challenges can have a significant impact on your bottom line, especially if your business heavily relies on your fleet for revenue. 

The overhead costs associated with delivery businesses, between hiring competent drivers, dealing with vehicle wear and tear, paying for fuel, etc. seem insurmountable already. But now, with the cost of a gallon at an all-time high–up 53% since the beginning of the year–it’s crucial to make sure you’re running your operation as efficiently as possible. There is not a single dime to waste!  

Routing software can help reduce fuel consumption, which will help businesses save money. It can also help maximize limited drivers due to labor shortages. Routing software is an investment, so how can you be sure you’re getting the best bang for your buck and a positive ROI?

Choosing the Right Routing Software

What are some of the important things you should consider when choosing routing software, and what may be some of the red flags? First things first, you’ll want to make sure that you are utilizing software that optimizes your routes completely stress-free. You don’t want software that will require you to do more manual labor and take more of your time. It needs to work and run your delivery operation seamlessly. Period.  

True route optimization goes beyond simply finding the shortest path between two points. It needs to include all relevant factors, such as vehicle load capacity, working hours, location of all the required stops on the route, and time windows for deliveries. When you can get routing right, the benefits are endless.
