DPD France adopts Kardinal’s sectorization and optimization software solution

The rise in online sales in recent years, boosted by the COVID crisis, is a major challenge to all last-mile delivery companies. The increasing seasonality and unpredictability of the business is putting a strain on structures and people who, on a daily basis, innovate to reinvent processes and systems. DPD has decided to implement the TAO (Territory Analytics & Optimization) software solution to sectorize the areas of its 68 agencies and optimize their routes.
