Postal and Parcel Delivery
Use cases for
Post & Parcel Delivery
National Territory Optimization
Design the optimal territory organization for the whole country area. Simulate the addition or removal of new depots or sub-depots.
Fleet Sizing and Fleet Conversion
Visualize the impact of new vehicles (e.g. electric vehicles) on your operations by creating simulations to make data-driven decisions about your fleet.
Sectorization of the Depot’s Territory
Design the optimal territory split for a depot area based on historical parcel counts and given operational constraints.
Help order pickers sort packages as they are scanned to save time and increase productivity.
Get detailed estimates of your subcontractor’s cost structure to buy transport at the right price.
Generate the optimal route after each driver scans the packages to reduce costs and improve service quality.
Fit in with the Organization of Post & Parcel Delivery Players
Parcel delivery companies have divided their optimization process into 2 steps:
- a dispatch stage: distribution of parcels in predefined areas
- a sequencing stage within each area, different each day
Managed by the depot manager, the Kardinal platform oversees the dispatch phase using its territory optimization module, TAO.
The day-to-day sequencing of the routes is managed by our ARO route optimization API module.
