Routing transportation software is a well-known type of software in the delivery industry but it seems that not everyone is using it.

Route planning enables you to take into consideration all logistics activities to minimize paperwork and fuel costs. However, there are a few other advantages of implementing routing software in your business.

Lower Transportation Costs

The first benefit is the obvious one. When a routing software plans, instead of you, it can figure out automatically what route is the fastest one. 

We all know that you might have a fleet of vans or heavy-duty trucks, which are all costly to maintain. Shorter driving time decreases fuel costs and vehicle maintenance costs. 

Most importantly, it can lead to less stressful situations since your drivers will get from point A to point B in less time than previously.

Flexible Fleet Management

Another benefit of route planning software is that, it could optimize your whole operations' flexibility in fleet management. Since it takes into account rest times and absent employees, only the right people will be chosen for the job.

Routing and scheduling result in a tight staff schedule and enable faster last mile deliveries, as well as even better route planning for future deliveries.

Greater Driver Satisfaction

Once the route optimization is finished, you’ll get better fleet schedules and faster routes, which inevitably leads to greater driver satisfaction. 

When your drivers have different workloads and different routes, it is not only unfair but there can be a lot of resentment within the team. 

So, think about using route planning software to enhance employee satisfaction.

Enhanced Customer Experience

Transportation costs are one thing, but once the route planning software organizes your fleet and your routes, you can focus on more important tasks. 

Customer support, advertising, and website improvement all contribute to your customer's happiness and you need to improve it constantly. But it’s crucial you start with routing software.

So, route planning automation also results in a better customer experience. This can further give your business authority and a higher position in the industry.

Less Paperwork

Be it rate confirmation, customs documents, bills of lading, or proof of delivery, there’s a lot of paperwork included in dealing with logistics processes. Moreover, some of it gets easily lost and then you have additional problems to solve.

Having all data stored in route planning software means no more piles of paper cluttering your office. You can easily eliminate paperwork and free up your office space by saving all your important documents in one app. 

Better Visibility

Lastly, route planning software can bring your business greater visibility. 

Better visibility means that your customer, your driver, and you have to know what’s happening in each part of the delivery process. It is crucial when it comes to customer satisfaction because 95% of online shoppers expect all shipping issues to be resolved while in transit.

Visibility also improves fleet management. You’ll know where exactly your trucks and your drivers are at any given moment.
