What are the differences between route planning software and Google Maps?
The right type of planning for every requirement
Every company and every industry has specific requirements and regulations. Intelligent planning and optimization software such as TransIT can be configured individually and flexibly using numerous functions.
Area and general route planning
In area planning and general route planning, the software optimally divides a delivery area into balanced areas based on historical order data. Daily tours can be easily created on the basis of areas with the help of the software. This type of planning is mainly used by courier and parcel service providers, in the food industry, in wholesale, in the service sector, in the home care sector (delivery of medical devices / liquid oxygen) and by municipal waste disposal companies.
Regular route planning
In regular route planning, tours are optimized in such a way that stations that have to be approached daily are driven via daily fixed regular tours or timetables. This type of planning is particularly effective, for example, in store deliveries, passenger transport or in laboratory analysis (collection of blood samples).

A manual compilation or adaptation of tours is necessary in rare cases, but generally possible. Tours can be customized at any time.
Special tasks of route planning systems
Large orders, express shipments, certain road specifications ... route optimization systems are able to determine routes optimized for special requirements. One of the main advantages of route planning systems is that large amounts of data can be processed in a short time. Special route criteria, such as B. road sides and toll roads are easily integrated into the planning. It is important to consider many planning conditions. In particular, industry-specific criteria that cannot be generalized can be individually and flexibly controlled by powerful software.
