Transport Route Scheduling

In a business with its own transport fleet, its transport resources and the infrastructure that supports them need to be periodically reviewed to reflect customer, sales volume and product portfolio changes over time. The costs of a transport fleet often represents the largest element of a company’s cost to market. With increasing fuel prices, and environmental impact considerations, it is more critical than ever to ensure that transport resources are perfectly matched to delivery requirements.

Strategic Planning

Strategic planning of vehicle resources can be a highly complex process. To design a truly optimised transport requirement a company must be able to consider all variables across the logistics network, using specialist techniques. 

Dips-Screen-Shot.gifThe consultants at Gideon Hillman Consulting utilise a range of highly specialist transport planning software, both industry standard and proprietary systems. Using these system allows our transport and distribution consultants to consider all variables within a framework of multiple scenarios e.g. what if the vehicle fleet is reduced or changes? What if customers are delivered between specific time windows, or on a dedicated day?

The software modelling supports scenario analysis and enables the transport and distribution consultants to determine the optimal number and type of vehicle resources required; where those resources are best located, and what infrastructure needs to be in place to support them.

From this information, the consulting team can then provide our clients with a detailed transport resource plan which is fully optimised against the business’s needs.
