Static Route Analysis - Optimization and Simulation

Challenge: Static DC routes had not been reset in years - this presented an opportunity to save miles and shipments. All stores serviced by the DC are on a 2 day a week delivery pattern that would not change, although the specific delivery pattern assigned to a given store could change.

Solution: By utilizing Manhattan services, our unique What-If analysis tool and then applying changes to the network, the customer was able to quantify the cost impact of varying business rules; either tightening or relaxing the given constraints, while generating optimal static routes to service the stores.

Results: Adhering to business constraints, we demonstrated an 8% reduction in miles, a 9% reduction in number of shipments, and a more than 70% reduction in dynamically planned orders. Once results are validated, the customer expects to implement the new static routes to realize the calculated savings, and improve service levels to their stores.
