Produce efficient truck schedules that meet your customer delivery profile requirements.
Multi Period Planner is a truck schedule planning tool which allocates multi-frequency deliveries to days, over a multi-week planning horizon. It takes account of acceptable day patterns, volume profiles and delivery frequencies ranging from daily to monthly or more.
Our vehicle scheduling software allocates multiple deliveries to days, balancing the overall distribution workload across the planning period. It will also ensure deliveries are clustered geographically and that the required period in-between deliveries to the same customer are maintained.
This flexible truck scheduling module can be used to help add new customers into an existing fixed delivery schedule, or to plan completely new delivery patterns. Equally major customers can be fixed to their current negotiated delivery days, while others are allowed to float, and will be allocated automatically to achieve a level workload across the week.
The software offers planning for both a balanced order profile or for a graduated profile such as that often encountered in retail distribution, where a customer orders 30% of the weekly volume for their first delivery in a week and 70% in their second.
