Production, transport, and distribution of goods: Intelligent logistics
Punctuality, reliability, and quality are the fundamental service objectives of the sector. Today these objectives have become real challenges under the constant pressures of competition, shorter lead times, and constantly lower prices.
Optit accepted the challenge, leveraging on its scientific competence and proprietary algorithms (routing, clustering, bin packing, etc.) to deliver software and intelligent components able to optimise logistical operations. In this way Optit provides efficient solutions for the production, transport, and distribution of goods.
- Solutions for optimising distribution plans (scheduling cut-off, continuous planning, etc.), making use of verticalizations available across the industry, retail, FTL transport, and secondary distribution.
- Solutions for optimising loading.
- Algorithms for zoning and customer allocation.
- Development of “custom” optimisation services to support planning and management processes.
- Vehicle routing.
