Company profile: hydrocarbons and petroleum products transport companies that supply both service stations and direct customers of heating, agricultural or industrial diesel.

The challenge

Get a powerful route optimization tool that contemplates the complex problem that the sector has:

  • vehicles with several compartments and the possibility of loading different products in each one
  • different types of discharge (by gravity or motor pump)
  • possibility of gathering orders from different customers in the same warehouse
  • different technical requirements such as vehicle size, gas collection, seals, etc.
  • Incompatibilities control between trips and between products.

The solution

LOGISPLAN is an intelligent system that allows automating the route planning process optimizing the use of the available fleet. In addition, it reduces the number of kilometers, as well as the working hours and other parameters. The system takes into account most of the logistical restrictions in the sector as a base and allows the parameterization of new specific conditions for each company.

The benefits

  • Automation of the planning process with the consequent saving in working time and, therefore, greater independence from expert personnel.
  • Minimization of route costs in terms of kilometers, hours of work, etc. which results in a greater productivity of the company.
  • Increase of guarantees and security in compliance with regulations and logistic restrictions.
  • Increase in the quality of the service due to the improvement in meeting schedules and other conditions.
  • Efficient response to last minute changes.
  • Reduction of CO2 emissions by minimizing Km and, as a consequence, improving the carbon footprint.
