Consultancy

Interested but have some concerns? Want expert, professional advice?

Route Optimiser are logistics professionals with direct hands-on experience gained in the third party and own account sectors.

Route Optimiser understand the total supply chain and have undertaken studies for Europe, Africa, Asia, Australasia and North America. Together with your own staff we form a powerful and cost-effective team.

Our two main specialist fields are in operational reviews and business development studies. This ensures we maintain our 'hands-on' experience while continually enhancing our strategic planning and analytical skills. We can realistically become your team for securing new logistics contracts and then carry out all your annual reviews.

What Our Customers Say

quote

By concentrating on the service market, Axfood Närlivs combines local customer focus with efficient logistics. The implementation has taken some time but has still gone very well and we have managed to find routines for an operative daily route planning. The results that we've accomplished so far speak for themselves having a much better overview over the total volumes of transport. We have also had a better control of our routes and we have managed to reduce our transport costs.
(Daniel Johansson, Head of Transport)

The cost savings have enabled us to increase our delivery fleet so even more of our customers have the 'Mattressman door to door' personal service.

To ensure that we continued to improve our service offering in line with our product quality,we needed to get smarter with our transport. We decided that the Route Optimiser product was the best system for us, delivering ease of use, speed of operation, operational efficiencies and overall visibility. Looking to the medium term we are investing further in the TomTom Work system for vehicle tracking, navigation and gaining the ability to pass the jobs directly from the LogiX Suite to the operatives in their vehicles.
