The essence of “Fleethand’s” route planning solution is to create a specific task and a precise route, map it and then send that precisely planned task/route to the driver in the “Fleethand” app on the mobile device. A dedicated HGV-specific map showing toll and toll-free roads, truck restrictions, hazardous road sections and traffic flows can also add company-specific HGV parking areas, petrol stations and route templates to your route planning. The result is an optimal route, perfected by the transport manager and calculated by AI using cost and toll calculations, avoiding the unplanned kilometers that often occur when the driver must decide which route to take to reach the final destination.
The analytical element is an equally important aspect of this functionality. The reports allow company managers to assess whether managers are using the tool in a targeted way and have planned all the kilometers driven. Also allow to assess whether drivers have driven the routes as planned, assess the difference between the distance planned and the distance driven, and see the exact places where the driver failed to follow the route. This helps for more efficient routing in the future and the complete elimination of unplanned kilometers travelled by the company’s fleet, which account for around 2-6% of total fleet kilometers.
This solution helps reduce logistics costs, directly saving on travel costs and streamlining the company’s logistics processes to optimal efficiency.
