Our transport optimisation and modelling team has access to a range of software which enables us to undertake a wide variety of transport evaluation studies from ‘centre of gravity’ models to optimising depot locations (numbers of, type, and geographical locations) to detailed routing and scheduling studies. We also implement the use of detailed Distribution Planning Systems in order to ensure our transport optimisation and evaluation is as precise, accurate, and effective as possible, which we also employ through our bespoke Cost and Performance Benchmarking services.
Our assignments enable our clients to;
- Compare current performance with potential
- Quantify improvements
- Evaluate “what if” scenarios
- Evaluate backhaul, fronthaul, and collaboration opportunities
- Identify optimum fleet size and vehicle mix
- Quantify driver numbers, working times, and shifts
- Quantify environmental impact
