A large scale corporate company in the logistics industry required a GIS solution to plan and monitor delivery schedules using GIS/GPS solutions. We developed a web based Network and Distribution Analysis tool which would optimize the route of delivery based on location and the type of material to be delivered. For instance, perishable commodities were prioritized for faster delivery with optimized routes.
This tool has helped the client to enhance delivery performance by 25% and to reduce transportation cost by 40%. A mobile application to enable drivers to change and manage their schedule is on the anvil, as part of the GIS based Logistics Management System.
